Skype. If you’re thinking about telepractice, you’re thinking about Skype. Are you aware of the risks and rewards of Skype? The technology certainly remains in demand, yet Skype apparently will release information about users to law enforcement agencies from around the world, and in some cases, without a court order. More than one national professional association has published statements warning about the dangers of using Skype for behavioral practice.
The webinar will be recorded for those unable to attend. Participants will learn the importance of privacy protection in technology use, the reasons Skype is not HIPAA complaint, be able to define “audit trails” and their importance.
