    Policy for Social Networking and Other Web-based Communications

    Create a social networking policy to assist you in keeping online communication on behalf of the organization in compliance with existing standards and applicable laws, as well as distinguish employees’ personal online activities from professional communications.

    The Sutter Health network believes that participation in online communities can
    promote better communication with the Sutter Health system’s colleagues and customers,
    the general public, traditional and non-traditional media and other community
    stakeholders.

    Sutter Health provides its official guidelines for social media participation to
    every employee, physician, volunteer, associate or affiliate of the Sutter Health
    network. These guidelines apply to anyone who creates or contributes to blogs, wikis,
    social networks, virtual worlds or any other kind of social media.

    Use this policy as a guide to help you create your own social networking policy for
    your healthcare or other enterprise. It will assist in keeping online communication on
    behalf of the organization in compliance with existing standards and applicable laws,
    as well as distinguish employees’ personal online activities from professional
    communications.
