The Role of Social Media in Healthcare Video Visibility


In today's digital age, social media is a tool that reshapes how healthcare information is shared and consumed. At Safehouse Studios, we recognize the power of social media in amplifying the impact of healthcare videos. This post explores the pivotal role of social media platforms in enhancing the visibility and dissemination of healthcare content, with a focus on our key phrase: "Social Media in Healthcare."

The Importance of Social Media in Healthcare Video Promotion

Increasing Awareness and Engagement

Social media platforms offer an opportunity to reach and engage with healthcare video content. A video, when shared on social media, can go viral, significantly broadening its audience. Statistics reveal that videos shared on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can experience a viewer increase of up to 1200% compared to text and images combined. For example, in a past project we did for our friends at Cone Health, “Lynn’s Story” a video project that brought awareness to lung cancer. The video surpassed view counts. It shows that the healthcare video worked to inform the public that non-smokers can get lung cancer, even if they have never smoked. The female population is leading in diagnoses for nonsmokers with lung cancer.

Building Trust with Audiences

Social media provides a unique space for healthcare professionals and organizations to build trust and credibility with their audience. By regularly posting informative and accurate videos, healthcare entities can establish themselves as reliable sources of health information. A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center indicates that 35% of social media users have used these platforms to look for or receive medical information, showing the importance of maintaining a trustworthy presence.

Enhancing Patient Education and Outreach

The versatility of video content on social media enables healthcare providers to educate their audience on a wide range of topics, from preventive healthcare measures to complex medical procedures. Another past project, "Robotic Prostatectomy," for our friends at the Cone Health Cancer Center in Greensboro, NC, focused on what patients should know before undergoing robotic prostatectomy surgery. These guidelines are designed to support patient education. This approach not only aids in patient education but also empowers individuals to make informed decisions about their health. Furthermore, the interactive nature of social media allows for real-time feedback and engagement, fostering a two-way communication channel between healthcare providers and their audience.
