As of 2016, 25% of medical facilities were currently using smartphones, tablets and mobile devices to provide effective patient care. With this number only growing, healthcare practices need to learn how to implement correct procedures to avoid patient data from being compromised.

Technology always comes with pros and cons. For healthcare providers, implementing technology allows patients to have faster access to their providers, but it can also leave the practice vulnerable to HIPAA violations if not used properly. Patients commonly sign HIPAA agreements, but many do not adhere to the standards. Patients are known for snapping pictures of medical practices and placing images on social media. What happens if pertinent patient information is shared online? What steps does a practice need to take to lessen the risk of patient data being compromised from mobile devices?

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the risks and liability
  • Learning what is acceptable and what is not
  • Learn how to implement BYOD and Social Networking policies in your organization; and how these resources can be leveraged to improve patient care and employee satisfaction.
  • Sample mobile device policies and example security protocols for BYOD in use today for compliant practices.

Join your colleagues in a discussion about how to implement proper BYOD and Social Network policies in your organization. Today’s environments are moving steadily toward mobile device implementation and access to PHI. Understand the implications and strategies to make a “no, you can’t” into a “yes, you can and this is how”. Social networking, text messaging, and email are all here now, on your employees’ devices, learn how to use them and stay compliant.
