7 thoughts on “Legal risks – Health Care Providers

  1. Hey there, good blog! I must agree with what was mentioned about “Health Care organizations should increase online presence ” Particularly where social media is such a big tool and health workers must be careful when accepting invitations or posting personal or private details within a social media environment! Why? because of the legal risks attached to it.

    • thank you Andy. agree with you that “particular with social media such a significant tool affect risks on health care”. that’s why those organizations should be aware of how serious risks could happen, and might direct impact to patient. they should consider more about this. btw, thank you for leaving comment for me:)

  2. Hi,
    It is really important for health related organization to keep the patient information a secret. Any information regarding the patient or the health condition can effect the patient social life and even work. Doctors and hospitals have to keep patient information confidential but with the use of social media, some information might get leaked out. In my opinion, organization such as hospitals should be very careful on how social media should be implemented.

    • thank you Sukshan. obviously, keep the patients’ information confidential is most important work for those health care organizations. it should be better if organizations set up the roles for internet users, or inform that the information is only for what purpose only. i think the risk would be reduced if they have impeccable polices when using social media. 🙂

  3. Hi Tiffany,
    Great post and well picked example, would indeed hate having my medical history online after a hospital visit because someone at the hospital couldn’t follow some simple rules.
