She effectively communicates the government regulation and necessary standards of HIPAA and how Compliancy Group can help simplify the process.

Some of the most common misunderstandings dental professionals face stem from how to use social media in a HIPAA compliant manner. Employees must be properly trained on how to use social media before permitted to do so. Without adequate employee training, your organization may be subject to fines due to the misuse of social media. Whether your practice is using Facebook to attract new clients or your employees are posting about their workday on Twitter, improper use of social media can lead to major HIPAA violations. With the widespread use of smartphones and access to apps like Instagram and Snapchat, these violations are more frequent than ever before. The question becomes: How can your practice use social media without violating HIPAA? Learn how your employees can use social media ethically, while protecting your practice from HIPAA violations. Attendees will be instructed on how to create effective policies surrounding the use of mobile phones and social media in the office, and given real life examples of HIPAA breaches that occurred due to improper social media usage. 

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Be HIPAA compliant in social media
  • Respond correctly to social media posts
  • Recognize best practices for social media use in the workplace 
  • Identify consequences for incorrect use of social media in your practice
