MeritCare Children's Walk-In Clinic is inviting families to capture kids on film and share them on Facebook to win the MeritCare Children's Walk-In Video Contest.
"Do your kids gab about their visit to the doctor's office? If your kids are like our own, they say funny stuff." That's the invite MeritCare Children's Walk-In Clinic is using to ask families to capture kids on film to win a spot in the limelight. Share the video on Facebook and it's that easy to win the MeritCare Children's Walk-In Video Contest.
"Social media is changing the way many health systems look at building relationships with patients," says Kirsten Jensen, communication strategy manager, MeritCare Marketing. "MeritCare Children's started a Facebook page in September 2009. It's really caught on and they now have over 2,000 fans. It's an incredibly personal way to connect with patients and families; we've really enjoyed getting to know our fans." A favorite past time for Facebook users has been posting pictures. Video is quickly gaining popularity as phones and other tools have made capturing priceless moments quick and easy.
