Participating in Existing URMC sites

We have established a number of institutionally sanctioned, regularly monitored platforms and we encourage faculty and staff participation in these platforms.
When posting a comment on an official URMC social media platform (e.g., the URMC Facebook site or our Health Matters blog):

  • Keep comments accurate and factual. (URMC reserves the right to delete spam and/or comments that are inappropriate or off-topic).
  • Disclose any conflicts of interest.
  • Never disclose protected health information without official, signed HIPAA permission from the patient or research subject. This includes photos related to patients or their care.

If you notice a negative comment, immediately contact the Public Relations Office. Do not attempt to correct or argue with the individual who posted the comment.
