Privacy Compliance for Medical Practices

Description

Ensuring compliance with privacy law is not just a matter of respecting patient confidentiality. Legal requirements include mandatory data breach notification, compliance with privacy legislation and penalties for breaches of the Australian Privacy Act 1988, which can include not having a proactive compliance program or the appropriate policies and procedures.

In addition to the legal compliance risks, medical practices face reputational risks from any data breaches, because patients have high expectations about privacy protection, particularly in the context of eHealth systems. This practical self-paced online module provides an overview of your privacy obligations, and the steps needed to implement a compliant privacy management program for your practice.
