In this course we’re going back to square one. Whether your practice has jumped enthusiastically into social media or you have avoided it at all costs you could be at a disadvantage. As the saying goes – Time, Tide and social media wait for no one. There are a lot of basic steps that need to be taken to get set up properly online so your practice can truly benefit from being active in social media.

This course will cover where you need to be present online, claiming your business locations, what to include in your online profiles and how to set them up for maximum impact and Search Engine Optimization benefit.

Course 300: Managing Your Online Reputation >> Available February 2016

Do you know what your marketplace is saying about you? Regardless of whether you have a social media presence or not, there are conversations happening on the web about your healthcare system, staff, and services. If you have a social media presence, you are in a better position to respond but may not be hearing all the conversations (e.g., if they are taking place in other platforms).

In this course we will explore how to monitor and manage (not control) your online presence, so you are better prepared to handle a crisis management situation, keeping HIPAA compliance in mind.

Available February 2016.

In this course, we’ll be taking a look at the top social media platforms and the best practices for engagement. In previous courses, we discussed the healthcare social media landscape, have reviewed the HIPAA and Privacy rules and gotten all your social sites claimed and up to date.

Now it’s time to engage in social media. We’ll look at each of the platforms and review a high-level strategy on how to engage in each of them. Plus I’ll show you some examples of practice social sites with Best Practice and opportunity for improvement tips.
