Description:

Overview
Maintaining a website and a social media presence is now essential for dentists and their practices. That can be a daunting task, especially because it comes in addition to helping patients, managing staff and keeping the practice running day-to-day. In this presentation, ADA Senior Associate General Counsel Jeffrey Fraum highlights the legal requirements and pitfalls dentists face when marketing via the web and social media. As a supplementary course to the American Dental Association publication, "A Dentist’s Guide to the Law: 246 Things Every Dentist Should Know," this presentation is most beneficial when viewed in conjunction with reading the book.

This presentation covers:
• Legal limits on marketing and advertising a dental practice
• Finding reputable web designers and how to contract with them
• How HIPAA applies when designing a website and communicating with patients via social media
• Online accessibility standards
• Avoiding "drive-by" accessibility lawsuits
• Avoiding copyright infringements with your practice website and social media
• Responding to negative reviews on social media

American Dental Association on-demand webinar
The information contained in this program was current as of June 17, 2021.

Course Overview
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. With the widespread use of smartphones, and access to apps like Instagram and Snapchat, these violations are more frequent than ever before.

The question becomes: How can your practice use social media without violating HIPAA?

In this webinar we outline how your employees can use social media ethically, while protecting your practice from HIPAA violations. You’ll be instructed on how to create effective policies surrounding the use of mobile phones and social media in the office, and given real life examples of HIPAA breaches that occurred due to improper social media usage.
