Here’s what doctors must know: Texting a patient (without proper written authorization) can result in a $500 penalty. Per text. With no caps. Doctors who text patients without written permission risk ruin. Legislation known as the TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act) dictates stiff penalties specific to texting and privacy violations.
The good news: The enclosed podcast, produced by our colleagues at the Insight Marketing Group (and featuring Medical Justice Founder and CEO, Jeff Segal, MD, JD) will teach you how to protect yourself from the worst outcome.
