In general the time spent by the doctor with the patient has come down. It can be represented by Doctor-patient contact time metrics. It may be just one metric that may correlate with the increasing discontent of the patients with their doctors. An attempt was made to use social media to gather information on this aspect.

A crowdsourcing technique was attempted to get information on the doctor-patient contact time as an experiment of the value of social media in getting social healthcare metrics. The information provided must be interpreted with restraint and caution.
This cannot be considered as a reliable measure of the quality of healthcare received and it should not be interpreted as such, but it can help us understand the general trends of change in how patients are seen in today’s busy practices. The information received should be interpreted with caution and is for use by experts in the field of healthcare planning, policy makers and experts mostly.
