What is #HCSMSA
#HCSMSA represents Health Care Social Media South Africa. It is a non-funded project which hopes to be a means to advance healthcare in South Africa by providing a platform to curate information as well as collaborate and discuss health issues. Social Media is currently being used on international level to discuss health care topics by not only doctors and patients, but also by scientists, medical students, journalists and the like.
Because of the advancement in medical technology, such as bio-printing, 3d-printing, robotics, googleglass etc. twitter in particular acts as the preferred platform for discussion and indexing in real-time, as opposed to most search engines, which can take several weeks to list an update.
South Africa are in desperate need of turning their health care system around, especially with the rest of the world advancing at the rate that It is.
Overview of the South African Health system
In South Africa, parallel private health and public systems exist. The public system serves the vast majority of the population, but is chronically underfunded and understaffed.
The current government is working to establish a national health insurance (NHI) system out of concerns for discrepancies within the national health care system, such as unequal access to healthcare amongst different socio-economic groups.

She has been invited as an #ePatient guest to attend the #doctors20 congress in Paris, 5-6 June 2014, but she needs to raise travel funds in excess of $3000 (R30 000)

WHY Social media in Health Care?
Social media, in particular Twitter, is being used in healthcare for a number of valuable reasons. One of the first is because of the growth in medical technology and because of the capability it offers to collaborate and network on a global level as well as share live developments.
Mobile health #mHealth is now growing in Africa because of the issues in terms of access to public health especially for those in rural areas. Social media is a wonderful way in which to promote further advancement in this area.
