Use and Abuse of Computers in the Medical Practice: The Electronic Workplace & e-Discovery
Speaker: Robert Gregg, Partner, Boardman & Clark Law Firm
Everything in the medical practice workplace has become electronic. Official and personal communications, data, record keeping, payroll, business transactions, security surveillance, tracking of parcels, vehicles and people, are all handled through technology. This gives the medical practice greater opportunity, greater scope of operation, more flexibility and opportunities to accommodate the needs of employees and patients. But this technology also creates added responsibilities and legal liabilities for medical practices.
Is misuse of the electronic system about to become your next liability? E-discovery reveals evidence of harassment, discrimination, defamation, identity theft and more. An employer's interception of electronic messages that an employee claims were “private” went to the U.S. Supreme Court. How far can an employer go in monitoring employees' social networking? Employers need to be aware of both the opportunities and the issues of use, misuse and rights to properly monitor and control the electronic system. In this lively 90-minute audio conference, Bob Gregg will share experience from cases and practical detail to clarify the issues you need to be aware of in your medical practice. Join us to learn the current issues, legal trends and practical pointers for your electronic operations.
This program will be a terrific investment of your time. Bob Gregg will provide understanding and practical pointers on:
- The growth of technology and law
- Wages and hours, and work from home effects
- Electronic discovery
- Harassment and inappropriate use
- Confidentiality and security
- Social networking
- Best practices that the best medical offices are using…
