Complimentary live on-line interactive workshop to help you plan to amend your PIA to your current clinic practice or expedited Netcare PIA.
Is it time to update your Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)?
Maybe you want to:
- add a new digital health app or patient portal to make it easier for patients to book appointments with you, or
- get access to Alberta Netcare Portal, or the CII or CPAR projects,
- expedited Netcare PIA
- use the internet to get telehealth on-line consultations for your patients,
- update your participating custodians and privacy officer, and
- regular review to ensure that you are continuing to meet the requirements of the Health Information Act (HIA).
A PIA is a practical business tool in your healthcare practice.
A PIA is an important tool that you can use to help you with project management.
It will help you anticipate risks to the project before it starts and avoid serious problems, wasted time and money.
The PIA process requires you to have written policies and procedures so that you can implement the project effectively and train your staff consistently.
Sometimes a PIA is a requirement of legislation. But it is always a best practice whenever you implement a project that includes personal health information.

What people are saying about our PIA e-courses and in-person workshops:
I had the pleasure of working alongside Jean to develop a PIA for my Dental Office. I could not have completed this document without her. She was there to help me every step of the way. Her online course made it easy to communicate with her as well as having so many resources to use that were so helpful. Each Module had videos to watch that explained step by step what needed to be done. The PIA document is a lot of information to put together and if it's not enough information on its own, you also need to develop a policy and procedures manual. Jean has developed an amazing resource for this manual that was very user friendly and made a 300 page manual a lot more attainable than creating it on your own. I highly recommend taking Jean's PIA course and having her help throughout the process!”

When Jean told us about the Protect Your Practice, Your Assets, and Your Patients with Privacy Impact Assessments E-course and explained how the course will help us better understand the Health Information Act, our responsibilities as healthcare providers and our relationship with our vendors and partners, I signed up right away! Thanks again – it is no doubt that we have hitched our wagon to a shining star.
This was my first ever time I had to work on a PIA and I was a little nervous about doing it efficiently – but you really made it as simple and straight forward as possible. Thank you for being available for my questions when I had them. I would easily recommend Privacy Impact Assessments to Protect Your Practice course for anyone to do their own PIA's! Thank you so much!
I attended the Privacy Impact Assessment Walk-through workshop (for ARMA members). Jean shared resources and on-going networking opportunities. The biggest benefit to me is to know that there is help out there in moving forward with our Privacy Impact Assessment responsibilities.
Comments from other E-course participants:
Learning about how all the information gathering systems interact was the most valuable part of this workshop.
Excellent presenter – variety of learning opportunities.
Jean is an excellent speaker and I enjoyed the audio seminar you gave today and I learned a lot from your seminar.
Jean Eaton is one of those ‘critical suppliers' you keep in your email contacts list, no matter what company you manage. She really knows her stuff and delivers prompt, accurate information on time. Her courses are interesting, informative, and I like the opportunity to meet with classmates who have similar challenges.
