Think about your medical business. You likely have robust and compliant privacy and confidentiality policies and procedures in place in your practice for when you are treating patients, and for ongoing communications. This is to not only protect your patient’s privacy but also to protect you from legal action that could potentially threaten your business.
Your website collects data
Your website is constantly collecting information about its visitors. In some cases, the information collection is obvious; for example, filling in an online form or booking an appointment online. However, it can also be less obvious that it is collecting information, such as keeping the IP address of a visitor.
What about Telehealth?
First contact your medico-legal provider and see if they are able to assist you in drafting a policy specifically for your practice.
