Privacy Compliance and Technology in Healthcare
Event by Rafiki Technologies with Information Managers
A Privacy Impact Assessment (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.
Join Rafiki Technologies’ Naheed Shivji and Information Managers’ Jean L. Eaton for a guide to successfully keep your patients’ information safe, follow cyber security best practices, and comply with the requirements of the Health Information Act (HIA).
This on-line workshop will provide you with practical tips to plan your Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) amendment as well as a strategic cybersecurity checklist.
Who Should Attend?
- Medical, dental, chiropractic, optometric, pharmacy practices in Alberta.
- Clinic manager, privacy officer or administrative lead responsible for updating your Privacy Impact Assessment.
- Healthcare provider
