How to be HIPAA Compliant on Social Media

Social media use can pose serious issues to your practice’s HIPAA compliance if patient information is not properly protected.
Photos and stories from one’s workday are commonplace on Facebook and Twitter. In most industries, these posts are routine and harmless–no different than vacation photos or memories from years gone by.
Listen to our live podcast from The National Council of Behavioral Health’s annual conference NatCon with CEO Marc Haskelson and Behavioral Health Channel Director David Kay. 

We ♥ the National Council for Behavioral Health

NationalCouncilThe Heart and the Hub of Behavioral Health

Billed as the nation’s most effective advocate for behavioral health prevention, early intervention, science-based treatment, and recovery, the National Council for Behavioral Health wears many hats that serve one cause: mental health. Whether it’s by effecting federal change by pushing through much-needed policies on the Hill or stifling mental health stigma with science or social media, the National Council is a best friend to behavioral health providers and vendors alike—even if they don’t know it (you likely do).

What’s Your Problem: You or Your Behavioral Health EHR?

mhnr-soundbitesJoin Scott Lloyd, President of MTM Services, for a live sound bite from National Council for Behavioral Health’s annual conference. Scott and our CEO, Kristin Walker, presented for council attendees about the growing changes, frustrations, and “gotchas” when it comes to Behavioral Health EHR technology. The session was outstanding and attended by EHR vendors, as well, as clinicians and agency directors. New requirements for integrated care will need to be adopted by EHR vendors with credentials, appropriate staff levels, browser-based technology, and responsible spending on development of their products – not just on sales and marketing. Organizations that provide services to our mental health population and EHR vendors are going to need help finding and creating new solutions as we move at light speed towards primary care integration.
