As a physician, you are more than likely engaging in social media to some extent. Whether this be your personal or professional accounts you must remember that HIPAA also applies to social media. It is a good idea, as a physician or healthcare professional, to avoid adding patients to social media to help avoid any accidental blunders that can put you in a difficult situation. You can run a quick google search to see articles on social media HIPAA violations nowadays. HIPAA violations can result in you being fired, fined, or more so it is important to make sure that you are always being compliant.
Overall, you are the physician and the professional which means you are in charge of yourself and your social media. Avoid becoming a headline and an example of what not to do to future physicians and make sure that you stay HIPAA compliant. It is a good rule of thumb that before posting on social media you ask yourself, should I really post this?
