The basic provisions of privacy for protected health information are well known. HIPAA has been around more than a dozen years. HIPAA privacy rules 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. This can occur by untrained health care workers at all levels of employment as well as careless, licensed health care practitioners. Health care practitioners and the facilities which employ them fear HIPAA violations consequences of their own via social media posted by those careless or untrained health care workers. Examine the uncertainty about how health care facilities and employers may take action, and may be themselves liable, for HIPAA privacy violations in the uses of social media. A violation can “go viral” and spiral out of control making the consequences even more disastrous. 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.

Find out in this informative webinar that provides you with a more complete knowledge of the HIPAA privacy mandates as enforced by state licensure boards and agencies and their own, unique pre-HIPAA confidentiality laws. Not only can a health care worker be “fired by Facebook,” but a licensed health care practitioner may be subject to licensure discipline as well. This webinar then devotes time to an analysis of state licensure and privacy laws that may spell doom for the hapless health care practitioner.
