Military Health System launches social media hub

Site allows easy access to MHS on various social networking services

The Military Health System has launched a social-media hub that allows easy access to the system's presence on several social-networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

The hub on the MHS Web site includes accounts from several MHS components, including the Office of Health Affairs, Tricare, Force Health Protection & Readiness, and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Other sites to which the hub connects are YouTube, TroopTube and Flickr.

MHS has developed its online presence across popular social-networking services in order to facilitate communication between young members of the military services and their friends and families.

“We want to start getting our stakeholders the information they need in the way that they prefer to be reached,” said Dr. Michael Kilpatrick, director of strategic communications for the MHS.
