English abstract

Biomedical fields are growing and the persistence of this progression depends on the interaction among health system groups to generate novel knowledge. Additionally, lack of integrated database to recognize, categorize, and discover the successful scientists and clinicians has confronted biomedical sciences with outstanding challenges concerning knowledge transfer. Joining researchers and clinicians together and analysing possible relations and connections among them via a network could be a proposed solution for the challenge. Social Network Analysis (SNA) serves to analyze the structural models of social communications. As a result, we suggest the establishment of a database as a proposal utilizing the SNA methodology to provide inputs for a social media consisting different involved health system groups.
