Health Care Compliance Strategies Inc., a vendor of online compliance and competency training curricula, has introduced a new course on responsible use of social media in health care.

The course examines the value, risks and consequences of using social media in a health care environment, the negative effects of improper use, best practices, and HIPAA privacy and security concerns. The course uses real-life examples that demonstrate proper and improper use of social media.

Course content is customizable for an organization to add its logo and contact information, and links to corporate policies and procedures, according to Jericho, N.Y.-based HCCS. A free demonstration is available at hccs.com.
