Do you know how many staff members are using personal smartphones in your facility? Are they using them to transmit patient information, including pictures or other protected health information? Do you have policies and systems in place to manage potential data breaches? Examples of data breaches and best practices for reducing liability related to smartphones and patient privacy will be shared at an upcoming webinar, Jan. 28 from 11:30 am – 12:30 p.m. (PT), hosted by the California Hospital Patient Safety Organization (CHPSO) and ECRI.  CHPSO members will receive an e-mail a few days before the event with information on how to participate.
