Submission Guidelines

Please adhere to the following guidelines for all submissions.

General

  • All submissions should be free of patient identifying information, i.e. anything that could be considered a HIPAA violation
  • Do not censor, blur, or otherwise modify screenshots, unless absolutely necessary to protect your own or a patient's identity or unless otherwise specified below

Social Media

  • Any "public" post is fair game, e.g. any Facebook profile post, page/group post, Twitter post, Instagram post, TikTok video viewable by a reasonably large audience; for example, content from a private Facebook group with more than a thousand members is not subject to any reasonable expectation of privacy.
  • If possible, including the "permalink" of the post is highly recommended in order to facilitate independent verification of its authenticity.

EMR screenshots

  • All HIPAA-protected patient identifiers should be removed, as well as any information that could be used to identify the originator of the screenshot.

Private Messages

  • Screenshots/transcripts of private messages / direct messages are acceptable if all participant names are removed, unless you are a party to the conversation. We highly recommend referring to local and state law to ensure your submission would be compliant (e.g. states that require two-party consent).
