Health organizations need to prioritize user & brand safety on their social media accounts

Social media is a powerful tool for companies in the health sector, but its adoption doesn't come without risk. Online interactions with clientele in the health industry often require special attention, care, and action.

It's therefore critical that companies in the health sector monitor their social accounts to protect their brand and, more importantly, the well-being of their users, customers, and followers.
