FREE Webinar, June 6th: 3 Reasons SKYPE May be RISKY to Your Practice & How to Remedy

SKYPE May be RISKYRegister for a FREE webinar entitled, “3 Reasons SKYPE may be RISKY to Your Practice & How to Remedy“.  With HIPAA requiring compliance, licensed professionals can be caught in the crosshairs if a problem arises when opting for these free video services. Traditional telehealth standards of care call for much more robust and IT-staff supervised video connections that require a monthly fee. (See the American Telemedicine Association’s Practice Guidelines for Videoconferencing-Based Telemental Health for details). This 60-minute webinar will examine the ways in which SKYPE’s lack of disclosure about HIPAA and HITECH compliance can compromise you if something goes wrong with your treatment of a patient, and offer you possible solutions if you choose to take the inherent risks involved. Discover the Telemental Health Institute Model for protecting yourself and you patient while using SKYPE, Google Talk, Oovoo or any other free, VoIP-based public Internet video platform.  The TeleMental Health Institute is the leading telemental health consulting and training group for Internet-based practice. In this webinar, Dr. Maheu will be interviewed by Dr. Joe Bavonese from Uncommon Practices. Send your pre-webinar questions to contact@telehealth.org. Audio recording will be made available to registrants. Date: June 6, 2011 Time: 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific)
