Social Media Changing Doctor Patient Relationship

New social media tools are changing the way patients communicate with their doctors.

Some experts say more than half-a-million people will be using health-care mobile applications on their smart phones by the year 2015.

Some of those tools are being developed in San Diego.

Sanitas, a San Diego-based company, created a networking site connecting doctors, patients, caregivers and families. The site is designed to help patients maintain their health care regimens.
