Why do I need a social media policy for my medical practice

Why do I need a Social Media Policy Template for my Medical Practice?

A social media policy will clearly communicate to your employees how to use your social media accounts and also the guidelines for their own social media use.  Each employee needs to understand that how they act and what they post on social media impacts the reputation of the company.

Not having a clear social media policy for your medical staff could be a problem when someone receives a lot of negative attention for something they post or violates your HIPAA privacy policy.
