do friends violate HIPAA

  1. 0
    especially with social media, does becoming friends with a former patient (once they are no longer in your facility, or any facility, and are at home) and posting about them or being "tagged" with them violate HIPAA? i was under the impression that if they are no longer in your care, or facility, that it does not. am i wrong?
