HIPAA Compliance

No social media communication, whether public posting or private messaging, is HIPAA compliant. Please do not engage in the exchange of patient information online, as it violates federal law. If someone tries to initiate a conversation that may be covered by HIPAA, do whatever possible to move the conversation off social media to a more secure means of communication.
