Webinar: Social Media and HIPAA Compliance: Protecting Your Practice in the Digital Age

Social media is a potential minefield for HIPAA violations. One impulsive response to an online review could violate the privacy of a patient, breach HIPAA Rules, and leave and the practice at risk of a significant HIPAA violation penalty.

In the digital age, healthcare providers have to deal with a whole new set of privacy concerns. Social media cannot be avoided, so it is important to understand what must be done to protect the business.

“Proactively generating reviews and also responding to them effectively, in a timely manner is essential to marketing your practice. However, without proper precaution, health care providers could face serious privacy breaches and even HIPAA violations,” said Liam.

In the webinar, Liam will explain how healthcare providers can respond to reviews in a manner that minimizes legal risk, while remaining fully compliant with HIPAA regulations.
