Tweets, Likes, and Liabilities: Online and Electronic Risk to the Healthcare Professional
Electronic medical records, websites, cellphones, email, and social media have created tricky new legal problems for healthcare practices. The digital world, namely social media, offers healthcare practices a vehicle to attract patients and potential employees but also presents risk to healthcare providers. This book will give practices the knowledge and tools to reduce liabilities and provide a “roadmap” to that world.
Although physicians, practice managers, administrators, and risk managers of practices and health systems know these issues are important, there is a dizzying array of issues (and interpretation) on the Web. Staff member have difficulty in identifying areas of potential risk, lack of a strategy to address electronic risks, and lack of tools to address electronic risks.
This essential book will give you peace of mind by flagging areas of risk – and then provide guidance and templates to address the risk.
