Medicare and Social Media

Medicare want to promote and spread their information through social media if the article in the Pharmacy News, 16th Dec is true.

But I’m not sure that’s the case. This reason is given as a reason for stopping the print production of “Bulletin Board”, the Medicare newsletter for pharmacists and only produce an online version.

So you go and sign up to the online bulletin.

And here’s where I am sure Medicare couldn’t give a toss about spreading information to all and sundry. You have to be associated with a bricks and mortar pharmacy – NOT an individual pharmacist or any other interested party – to sign up.

So Medicare want their information disseminated but restrict access to it in the first instance.

Only in a government department.
