This webinar provides an overview of core privacy requirements of HIPAA. Then, the subject moves to the social media activities of health care practitioners. This webinar provides a brief summary of those basic HIPAA privacy protections then goes into detail on the many ways a health care provider may run afoul of the privacy exceptions via the use of social media. This may occur both when a heath care practitioner initiates a social media comment and when the practitioner responds to a social media statement. A common pitfall is where current or former patients rate doctors on health care practitioner rating websites. 

How does one respond and not violate the law? Can the doctor's informed consent or practice policy documentation with the patient cover this and prevent the patient from speaking out on social media about the doctor? This webinar will cover examples of state laws that apply to licensed health care professionals that mandate confidentiality and will further examine how health care professionals licenses can be suspended or revoked for privacy violations in the course of using social media. Finally, a look at how employment rules of the health care facility may impact the use of social media by the health care practitioner.

Why should you attend this webinar?

The basic provisions of privacy for protected health information are well known. They serve to protect health information of the patient from prying eyes, yet the rise of social media provides new avenues and ways for the unwary health care practitioner to violate HIPAA's privacy requirements.

Examine how health care facilities and employers may take action, and may be themselves liable, for HIPAA privacy violations in the uses of social media.
Erase the uncertainty and doubt that exists when the health care practitioner is confronted with a possible HIPAA privacy violation in the use and abuse of social media.
