HCCS043 - Responsible Use of Social Media in Healthcare
Social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn have become increasingly popular places to post opinions and to network with colleagues and the public. With this popularity comes an increased risk for healthcare facilities from improper online postings.
One inappropriate post could bring a range of legal liabilities and unforeseen consequences for your facility and staff. These consequences can include federal and state regulatory violations and fines, the illegal release of patient information, a damaged reputation, negative publicity, the loss of patient trust, lowered staff morale and the loss of business. An organizationís success relies on all employees understanding these risks and acting with integrity and responsibility when using social media.
This 25-minute online training course defines the risks and consequences of social networking and provides guidance to help employees use social media responsibly.
