New Social Media Training Course for Health Care Providers Available Online

(NewMediaWire) - October 06, 2014 - Santa Monica, Calif. - Comply Socially, the nation’s top-rated social media training provider, today released a new social media training course for health care providers online. The online course, for health care providers, health plans, health care clearing houses and their business associates , covers how to use social media effectively and responsibly without violating HIPAA.

“When medical trauma teams learned about the Boston Marathon bombing on social media, they postponed elective procedures to prepare operating rooms for incoming victims,” said Comply Socially CEO Eric Schwartzman. “Social media has tremendous value to health care professionals, as long as it doesn’t compromise patient privacy.”

The course focuses primarily on the HIPAA Privacy Rule, and also covers the advantages and benefits of social media communications to health care professionals; permitted disclosures; the minimum necessary requirement; limiting uses; rules on endorsements; and  the HIPAA Security Rule.

The running time of the online course, which is available via desktop or mobile browser in HD, is approximately 50 minutes. 

To verify knowledge transfer, 12 auditable, SCORM-compliant assessment questions follow each training module. For convenience, the online courseware comes with session tracking to accommodate incremental learning.  For small organizations, the online training is available online via ecommerce. Or clients can license the course and host it in their own LMS.  Proprietary HTML5 compiling accommodates mobile browser use.
