Abstract: Online social networks are evolving as platforms for health communication among the public, patients, and health professionals. Existing health social network based portals do not provide synchronous -video-based communication features; and are restricted to only text and picture based content sharing. Arguably, healthcare focused online social networks need video based communication for active knowledge sharing between providers and patients, peer-patients, or sharing disease related information through visual media. This study provides a technological framework and design architecture to develop a customizable online healthcare social media network that can incorporate synchronous video communication capability. The design principles and layers that support different types of functionality are described. An evaluation in the context of Rheumatology and back pain patients is underway and will not be discussed in this paper due to page constraints.
