Is your office practice walking the technology tightrope? This webinar will address current hot topics related to technology, including data security, electronic communication, electronic health records, and telehealth. Participants will learn how to proactively assess new technologies and mitigate associated risks.


  • Explain why selection, training, and competency are top risk concerns for all new technologies
  • Understand risks associated with social media/electronic communication and identify key areas for consideration in the development of social media policies.
  • Cite barriers and risks associated with telehealth, and describe several strategies that can help address telehealth liability concerns


MedPro Group is pleased to offer insureds an opportunity to earn continuing education hours. There is no cost for this test or the corresponding CE credit. Please make sure you have viewed the webinar completely before taking this test. If you pass the test with a score of 80 percent or higher, you will be issued one CE credit and can print a copy of the CE certificate for your education files. If you previously completed this program, you will not receive credit for completing this program again.

NOTE: You will be allowed to take the test only once. If you leave the session without having submitted the test, the content cannot be saved. Additionally, the test will time out after about 15 minutes of inactivity. If this occurs, you must wait approximately 2 hours before attempting to take the test again. This allows the system sufficient time to reset.
