Social networks have the potential to provide a number of capabilities for augmenting healthcare service delivery and providing new capabilities not present in traditional clinical health communication or public health communication. In this paper we propose a model for social network-enhanced health communication and describe and analyze how this can assist health consumers in the population as a whole, those at risk of developing a condition(s), current sufferers of a specific health condition(s), clinicians, public health authorities, and health and medical researchers.
