The Internet is jam-packed with dangerous, highly visible HIPAA violations by Covered Entities on websites, social media pages and patient review sites.

The violations are dangerous and unnecessary. HIPAA spells out simple safeguards to protect Covered Entities that are easy to apply. But obvious violations in plain sight prove countless Covered Entities are at risk because they don't know or don't follow key HIPAA Rules. Bad advice from marketing consultants and the work of web site builders that have no HIPAA liability make the problem worse for Covered Entities.

This webinar explains the HIPAA Rules and safeguards for Web Sites, Social Media and reviews posted by patients about Health Care Providers. It will show you how to do what you want to do - engage patients and attract new patients on the Internet - and comply with HIPAA. You'll see the HIPAA Rules are easy to follow, step-by-step - when you know the steps.
