Do you need a Privacy Impact Assessment?
Or do you need to amend an existing PIA?
Privacy Impact Assessments are just one of the requirements you need in order to fulfill your obligations in Alberta’s Health Information Act (HIA) and other legislation and are an important aspect of developing privacy best practices in your office.
And a little help along the way is always a good thing.
Practical Privacy Coach, Jean Eaton of Information Managers, is constructively obsessive about privacy, confidentiality, and security when it comes to the handling of personal and health information, particularly in primary health care settings. Jean has helped hundreds of healthcare providers, vendors, and health and social service delivery organizations and associations complete their Privacy Impact Assessment which have been successfully accepted by organizations' management and regulators. Jean has customized and delivered privacy training programs for privacy officers, records management professionals, implementation teams, and healthcare providers across Canada and the US.
Now you can have access to five modules to help you learn everything you need in order to complete your own PIA.
Each module includes a video training, as well as templates, tools, resources and two case studies to build on in each lesson. You can use this scenario to guide you through the PIA process – a process that applies to many services and retail industries, not just healthcare. If you work in healthcare or privacy or records management and need to do a PIA, this e-course is for you.
You need a Privacy Impact Assessment when
- You are opening a new clinic or establishing a new health services program.
- You are changing administrative procedures or technology equipment, services, or vendors
- You are changing how you collect and use personal information,
- You are implementing or changing an Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
- You are sharing health information with another healthcare provider, organization, Primary Care Network or other health program.
- You have a Privacy Impact Assessment that was written more than 2 years ago (It is time to review and update this!)
If you are a healthcare provider, practice manager, and you need your first PIA this e-course is for you
Are you in a group or solo practice with direct patient care, for example:
- Registered nurse
- Optometrist or optician
- Dentist, dental hygienist or denturist
- Mental health practicitioner
- Laboratory, x-ray, and imaging technician
A PIA should be as common place to a healthcare practice as a business plan is to a business. BUT most healthcare practices don’t know this and often don’t know that a PIA is usually part of their professional college requirements and often even a legislated requirement! Prevent malicious errors, omissions or attacks that could result in fines and even jail time for the business, healthcare provider, employee, or vendor by completing a PIA.
If your Privacy Impact Assessment was written more than 2 years ago this e-course is for you
The Clinic Manager and Physician Lead and Privacy Officer must ensure its content is updated to reflect the current state of administrative, physical and technical controls.
BONUS! Checklist to update your PIA to meet recent changes to Alberta's Netcare Portal. If your practice has completed a PIA and now you need to update the PIA, you receive a checklist of items that you need to consider to refresh your PIA.
If you a vendor that supports healthcare practices this e-course is for you
BONUS! One hour tele-consult with Jean, “Create a branded Privacy Impact Assessment Readiness Package”. Jean will work individually with you to review your documentation and coach you on how to prepare the package to give to healthcare practices.
BONUS! Vendor PIA live webinar includes Vendor non-disclosure agreement, Information Manager Agreement, GAP Analysis, Computer Network Narrative templates.
Jean has helped hundreds of physicians, chiropractors, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers complete their Privacy Impact Assessment. She has visited hundreds of practices across Canada. But time and geography limit my ability to visit each healthcare practice that needs a PIA. That's why I developed this on-line interactive course to help you learn everything you need in order to review, amend, or create your own PIA. Each module includes a video training as well as templates, tools, resources and two common case studies to build on each week. You can use these scenarios to guide you through the PIA process.
You know your practice better than anybody else. If you had the right tools, at the time most convenient for you and a mentor to help you, you can develop good office practices, meet legislated and college requirements, and successfully complete your Privacy Impact Assessment requirements.
Using a Webinar on-line interactive program, you will get great content and instructions from Jean Eaton and regular open office hours.
The modules include:
PIA to Protect Your Practice, Your Assets, and Your Patients
