Health care social media continues to be a hot-button issue for hospitals and other provider types around the country.  Health care provider organizations considering taking a first step into social media often articulate concerns about regulatory and legal barriers to the use of social media in health care.  As regular readers of HealthBlawg know, I believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure — in the health care social media arena as elsewhere.  Careful planning up front will help you avoid the potential liabilities and pitfalls you may otherwise face in implementing a health care social media program.  I invite you to take a look at this quick compendium of rules to live by, which I compiled with Dan Hinmon of Hive Strategies, and follow the link on the last page of the embedded presentation to download an expanded version.
