Online PR News – 21-August-2012 – Hawthorne, NY – Westchester and Dutchess County orthopedist, Howard J. Luks MD, is interviewed nationally by USA TODAY for his healthcare social media expertise in "Social Media Tools Can Boost Productivity."

Dr. Luks shares how he uses Doximity, a Facebook-like social network specifically for healthcare professionals. Doximity allows Dr. Luks to nurture a close-knit circle of referring doctors and specialists where they can collaborate efficiently and privately. They share and confer on patient records and cases on a daily basis. Most of the work is done through the iPhone.

While other physicians still rely heavily on the fax machine--with 15 billion faxes sent a year, Dr. Luks is leading in the use of digital communications and tools in medicine. Dr. Luks' orthopedic practice is a small business that utilizes all the major social platforms to educate and engage patients including a blog, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.

According to Dr. Luks, "Social media has enabled me to share expertise with colleagues and patients. However, I do not provide medical advice specific to individual patients through social media. Although a contact may be initiated through social media, it would be followed up by a private patient discussion."

Dr. Luks lends his expertise to doctors and businesses who want to learn more through his website with a specific portal for social media at howardluksmd.com/hjluks20.
