Clinics in 11 disciplines in the province of Alberta are required by law to complete, submit and keep-up-to-date a Privacy Impact Assessment.
In this era of mandatory reach reporting, clinics across North America and in Europe will benefit from completing a Privacy Impact Assessment to identify risks to the security and confidentiality of the patient information under their control. The Brightsquid privacy team is qualified to consult on compliance and advise clinics subject to HIPAA, PIPEDA, the HIA and other provincial privacy regulations.
