Social Media Guidebook Helps Staff Navigate Privacy Issues

Mayo Clinic's Integrity and Compliance Office has developed a Mayo Clinic Social Media Guidebook to help staff navigate questions related to appropriate social media postings.

The guidebook includes section on:

  • Mayo Clinic Social Media Policy
  • Posting PHI on Social Media Platforms
  • Posting De-identified Data to Social Media
  • Posting Patient Stories, Image or Audio to Social Media

The guidebook concludes with a one-page grid outlining the types of authorizations required for posting information in various scenarios, links to Mayo Clinic Social Media Network resources, and copies of authorization forms.

The Mayo Clinic Social Media Guidebook is now posted on our Mayo Clinic Resources page as a resource for Mayo Clinic staff and as an example for colleagues at other institutions.
