Welcome solo and group practice owners! We are Liath Dalton and Evan Dumas, your co-hosts of Group Practice Tech.

In our latest episode, we’re talking about AI use in a group practice setting.

We discuss the ways that AI can impact group practices; risk analysis considerations; ways that AI is already utilized that you may not be aware of; setting explicit policies around AI; vetting whether AI services have access to PHI; steps to take when implementing HIPAA appropriate AI services; and our upcoming training with Eric Ström on navigating the legal and ethical guidelines of AI use for mental health practitioners.
