Delegates will have the opportunity to learn more about the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) and address how patient privacy can be preserved moving forward.
The objectives of the day-long seminar:
- Provide legal updates, policies and procedures to protect the privacy of patient information.
- Review privacy impact and audit compliance programs within your organization.
- Review access and disclosure, and provide solutions to safeguard personal health information and improve patient experience.
