As the medspa industry explodes, it becomes more difficult to stand out from the crowd… enter the Podcast.

At Camas Medspa we started with video on Youtube and have since expanded to Spotify and Apple and have seen a marked increase in not just new clients coming in but also an increase in client retention.

If you are ready to start chatting it up in the digital space (and I highly suggest it), make sure you get all  your compliance ducks in a row before grabbing that microphone.

Key Compliance Considerations:

HIPAA Compliance: If you plan to discuss patient information (which I wouldn’t suggest) ensure that you comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. This means obtaining patient consent before sharing any personal or protected health information and maintaining appropriate security measures to protect patient privacy.

Advertising and Marketing Regulations: If you are going to be advertising products or services, please be aware of advertising and marketing regulations specific to the medical and aesthetic industry. Ensure that your podcast content adheres to guidelines set by regulatory bodies, such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), to avoid any false or misleading claims.

State Medical Board Regulations: Familiarize yourself with the regulations and guidelines provided by your state’s medical board. Depending on your location, there may be specific rules regarding the practice of medicine, advertising, or the promotion of medical services that you need to follow.

Informed Consent: If you plan to interview guests or discuss specific treatments or procedures, obtain informed consent from individuals participating in the podcast. Clearly communicate the nature of the discussion, any potential risks or benefits, and ensure they understand how their information will be used and shared.

Intellectual Property Rights: Respect intellectual property rights when using copyrighted material, such as music or images, in your podcast. Obtain proper licenses or permissions to use any copyrighted content to avoid infringing on intellectual property laws.

Professional Codes of Ethics: Consider any professional codes of ethics or guidelines that apply to your medical or aesthetic practice. Ensure that your podcast content aligns with these ethical standards and doesn’t compromise patient confidentiality, professional integrity, or patient-doctor relationships.

Disclaimers and Legal Advice: Include disclaimers in your podcast episodes to clarify that the information provided is for general educational purposes and should not be considered a substitute for professional medical advice. Encourage listeners to consult with qualified healthcare professionals for personalized guidance.
