Why should we be concerned about privacy legislation, security and protection of confidential information about individuals, in particular, personal health information? The answer goes to the integrity of your institution, the reputation of each and every worker and volunteer and the respect that individuals have for those they serve. Our blood type, our mental health records, our marital status, police records, income information, whether or not an individual had a therapeutic abortion, takes growth hormones or has been diagnosed with a mental illness. Our lives and how people react to us flow through the hands of others in the form of paper and electronic records. It is the responsibility of every employee and volunteer, every driver and insurer, every fundraiser and accountant to be aware of how privacy and security rules apply to personal and personal health information.

Objectives:
Our society is becoming increasingly focused on security as a significant portion of organizational records are held electronically. You will learn about what rules your organization must follow to protect personal and personal health information, navigate the perils of electronic records, the consequences of inadequate attention to privacy and how to minimize the risk of privacy breaches. You will learn how to recognize where your organization may be at risk for unauthorized access to personal and personal health information and how to limit health information custodians’ exposure to future incidents involving unauthorized access. Case studies, recent Privacy Commissioner orders and court decisions will be discussed to give insight into where organizations should focus their attention in this emerging regulatory and enforcement regime.

Questions Answered:
What are my obligations under PHIPA, public and private sector privacy legislation? When can I disclose personal health information (to CSA, the Police, insurance providers)? Should we conduct a privacy audit? Can individuals decide how their personal information will be collected, used and disclosed? Is confidentiality the same as privacy? How do I imbed Fair Information Practices into my organizational business model? Are our organization’s software systems in legislative and regulatory compliance?

those responsible for privacy and confidentiality matters
human resources, corporate responsibility, and other officers in corporations and organization
