Globally, healthcare accounted for more privacy breaches than any other industry in 2018. The number of incidents continues to rise as healthcare institutions are frequently in the news for mismanaging personal health information. Breaches and missteps can result in significant reputational risk and institutional liability.
Maintaining adequate privacy around health information is a core priority of patients, medical institutions and professionals, software vendors, and clinical researchers. A web of regulatory instruments and best practices have developed to protect sensitive medical data. These ensure that only those who require access for treatment or research purposes are able to view this most personal category of private information. Failure to adopt adequate protective initiatives can leave patients vulnerable to the loss of highly sensitive personal information and medical organizations liable for breeches that can lead to class actions and a loss of trust by their patient populations.
If you are a healthcare risk manager, privacy officer, director of care/professional practice, a lawyer advising on privacy and information management issues, nurse or nurse educator, it is critical that you have a current understanding of the key issues and how to deal with them. Or, if you are involved in healthcare IT or software, you should be able to understand the complex regulatory web and your clients’ needs. Designed by an expert multidisciplinary faculty, the Osgoode Certificate in Privacy Law and Information Management in Healthcare will explore the range privacy interests that must be protected in the day-to-day treatment of patients, the development of information systems and the creation of institutional policies. It will provide practical strategies for complying with regulatory and contractual obligations and designing viable procedures for governing health data systems and partnerships.
