Understanding HIPPA: Patient Privacy Laws for Medical Aesthetics

By: Alex Thiersch

Like millions of other businesses, medical aesthetic practices and medspas often use social media channels—such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram—to increase brand awareness, promote new services, and strengthen the bond between providers and patrons. Unlike other service- and product-based businesses, medical practices and medspas are bound by patient privacy regulations set forth in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). And it is shockingly easy for a practice to expose itself to HIPAA violations through social media activity.
