New Privacy Tools provided by the Canadian Medical Association

Posted Oct 30 2008 3:22pm

As a physician, how does one develop a privacy policy for your office/clinic that is accurate, relevant and covers all the necessary bases? This is not a simple process and to be relevant needs to take factors into account for the specific practitioner and the practice. The Canadian Medical Association has developed a Privacy Wizard that is freely available to Canadian Physicians through the web site. The wizard walks the physician through the various steps of creating a privacy policy and at the end of the process generates the necessary documents in Adobe .pdf format in English and French. The advantage of this process is that the wizard also suggests steps that can be taken to improve privacy processes and procedures in the office. I highly recommend physicians take a look at the tool (it took me about 20 minutes to go through the various steps and create a policy for my office). Go to CMA Privacy Wizard (Requires registration on web site)

Another useful resource available on the web site is the following set of Privacy Shortcuts
