From Twitter and Facebook to LinkedIn and Instagram, employee access to social media – and employer exposure to costly risks – is greater than ever.  Whether responding to patient inquiries on Twitter, conversing with job candidates on LinkedIn, or sharing educational videos on YouTube, social media use dramatically increases the risk of workplace lawsuits, HIPAA violations, security breaches, productivity drains, PR nightmares, and electronic protected health information (ePHI) exposure.

This program will focus on social media policies and procedures for hospice and home care organizations.  Gain a clear understanding of how a best-practices-based policy and a compliance management program can mitigate risks, maximize compliance, and manage records use and content.  Don’t let online mistakes blemish reputations, sink careers, provoke lawsuits, or prompt HIPAA audits. Best practices dictate establishment of formal policies governing what current and former employees and volunteers may and may not post on social media.  Attend this webinar to learn how to develop and implement a strategic social media policy program.
