Electronic Ethics! Avoid Getting Shocked When Texting and Cloud-Based Sharing. Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA
Can you text on your cell phone with your client about the progress of the lactation care plan, and still meet healthcare provider ethical requirements
for privacy and confidentiality? Will you be able to comply with HIPAA/HITECH laws? Our client/patient families insist on using text messaging or even social media networks to communicate. And yet our practice-guiding documents and legal obligations were drafted when such technology was not even envisioned. This session will offer real-world, use-them-today suggestions, allowing the IBCLC practitioner and other lactation support providers to ethically and legally use texting, social media and cloud-based document sharing in clinical care.
