5 Steps To Prevent Employee Snooping
SAY NO TO SNOOPING!
If an individual affiliate knowingly breaches the privacy and security of health information, and the custodian can demonstrate that reasonable safeguards (including privacy awareness training) were in place, the individual affiliate can be charged under the Health Information Act. Fines of up to $50,000 may be applied to the individual, in addition to other sanctions from their employers and/or their professional regulatory colleges where applicable (HIA s.107).
What Is Snooping?
Looking at someone’s personal information without having an authorized purpose to access that information to do your job is known as ‘snooping’.
Even when you are “just looking” at personal information but don’t share that information with anyone else, this is still a privacy breach.
It is illegal.
Snooping incidents are on the rise and can cost you time, money, heartache, and headache in your practice.
When there is an offence under the privacy legislation like the Health Information Act, there may be an investigation, charges and court appearances, fines, penalties, and loss of employment.
Snooping is entirely preventable.
How Can You Prevent Employee Snooping?
Let’s take a look at the pro-active steps that you can take today to prevent employee snooping.

Protect Your Organization and Your Patients With a Privacy Awareness Quiz
Equip your staff with the information they need to confidently and correctly handle personal health information.
Healthcare businesses need privacy awareness training to support key policies and procedures, and risk management programs need a privacy awareness training program.
As an employer and healthcare provider, you are responsible to provide training to all of your employees about privacy awareness.
If you don’t provide the training, or if the employees don’t understand the policies and there is a privacy breach, then the healthcare provider is more likely to be held accountable under the legislation and face penalties, including fines and even prison!
Patients value the privacy and security of their information.
Healthcare providers and clinic managers value privacy and security, and they value not having adverse results as a lack of compliance or patient safety issues.
Patients trust their healthcare providers with their sensitive, personal, and financial information.
If patients don’t feel that the healthcare provider will keep their information confidential and secure, patients may choose not to share their information, which may impact their healthcare and treatment.
When we are privacy aware, we can better respond to patients’ questions and build their trust in the quality of services that we provide.
