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.
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!)
Doing a Privacy Impact Assessment for your practice is easy – once you figure it out. I have helped hundreds of clients complete their Privacy Impact Assessment and visited hundreds of practices across Alberta. I’ve figured it out . . . so you don’t have to! Now I’m going to share with you what you need to know to plan your PIA.
