Why Should You Attend?

Patients are increasingly turning to online sources and social media for information-related health issues. In light of state and federal regulations surrounding the compliant use of social media within the healthcare industry, there are tremendous benefits in utilizing and managing social media effectively in your organization. 

However, while social media continues to grow in importance in healthcare marketing, the challenges associated for non-compliance with HIPAA rules and regulations continue to increase. Protected Health Information (PHI) is the main compliance issue facing physicians. Physicians must be aware of both HIPAA and state laws with regard to the disclosure of patients’ PHI through social media.

Topic Description

Research data repeatedly indicate that patient outcomes improve when patients are involved and engaged in their own healthcare. Social media can be the ideal opportunity to expand the patient-doctor relationship beyond the traditional face-to-face encounters. 

However, being aware of inadvertent disclosure of PHI, such as photos or videos, can result in fines and other penalties. To effectively manage this, healthcare organizations should provide HIPAA training to social media managers and conduct compliance checks with continued monitoring. According to a survey conducted January 2016, by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) and Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA), cyber security and cyber crime tops the list of compliance and ethics professionals’ hot topics.

HHS.gov. indicates that in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, included Administrative Simplification provisions that required HHS to adopt national standards for electronic health care transactions and code sets, unique health identifiers, and security. At the same time, Congress recognized that advances in electronic technology could erode the privacy of health information. Consequently, Congress incorporated into HIPAA provisions that mandated the adoption of Federal privacy protections for individually identifiable health information.

This webinar conference will take a closer look at the benefits of engaging in compliant social media activity in your medical practice, such as increasing new patient activity and patient engagement. Gain information on why the role of social media in healthcare is growing and how your organization can optimize on this opportunity and still ensure HIPAA compliance.
