tLeeHISA is pleased to announce US-based Thomas M. Lee, the co-founder of global health social media company Symplur, will be a keynote speaker at this year’s HIC in Brisbane 3-5 August.

Thomas Lee has four decades of experience in the business of healthcare with special emphasis on business start-ups, new program development, and leveraging web technology.

He says he’s passionate about the role social media plays in the healthcare landscape, and in the emerging field of social media analytics.

“Healthcare social media has been breaking down barriers and levelling the healthcare playing field,” he said.

Many members will recognise the Symplur brand as creators of the Healthcare Hashtag Project, the world’s largest database of healthcare tweets. Every HISA conference registers with Symplur so that all social media is tracked. For a taste of the power of social media at HIC 2015 you can check out Symplur’s data on HIC 2014 HERE.
