Social Media: The Opportunities and the Challenges in Healthcare


Wednesday, June 16, 2010
Sponsored by the Health Information and Technology Practice Group


The explosion of social media has created both opportunities and challenges in the healthcare industry. This webinar offers a practical approach to navigating the legal issues inherent in the use of technology tools like blogs, wikis, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media-driven technology. The webinar will examine the impact that social media is having on healthcare organizations and the industry.

Designed for both newcomers and seasoned users of social media, participants will benefit from the real-world experiences and insights of speakers actively engaged in advising clients regarding social media initiatives. The webinar will address: (1) the use of social media in the healthcare industry; (2) legal issues of particular interest to healthcare institutions (e.g., privacy, security, regulatory compliance, intellectual property, professional liability, litigation, discovery, etc.); and (3) tips for drafting effective social media policies and procedures. The speakers will utilize actual hands-on experiences to illustrate how best to reconcile the social media business goals of healthcare institutions with the legal issues inherent in pursuing those goals.
