Some of the most common misunderstandings amongst Dental professionals concern how to use social media in a HIPAA compliant manner. Employees must be properly trained on how to use social media before being 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 patients, or your employees are posting about their workday on Twitter, improper use of social media can lead to major HIPAA violations.
