We don't need more cases of people snooping into patient health records.
We do need employers to implement clear privacy policies, privacy awareness training program, implement monitoring and sanctions when employees or
contractors break policies and laws.
And we need employers who know how to prevent a privacy breach and properly manage a privacy breach when it happens.
Employers who don't do this are breaking the law, violating their professional regulations standards, and opening up the doors for the employers to be fined and even jail time.
What are you doing to improve your privacy in your healthcare practice?
You should have:
- clear privacy policies
- privacy awareness training program – not limited to training on the first day of work!
