Privacy Awareness in Health Care Online Training
Protect Patients. Ensure Privacy. Educate Employees.
“About 80% of all privacy breaches are internal to an organization, and in many cases, the breach is an error or unintentional.”
“[Privacy breaches are] more common than I think anyone in the health sector would like to admit,” said Scott Sibbald, spokesperson for the OIPC. “We are, of course, seeing more incidents that are a result of snooping. So that’s authorized users of health record systems looking into health information that they don’t need to for their job,” he said.

Health information is one of the highest proﬁle privacy concerns of the average Canadian. The most common privacy breaches happen when personal information of patients, clients, customers or employees is stolen, lost, improperly accessed or mistakenly disclosed. A privacy breach triggers signiﬁcant moral and liability implications for the employer and employees and has a high probability of becoming the lead story on the evening news! Educating your workforce on the proper collection, use and disclosure of personal health information is a crucial regulatory requirement. Protect your organization and patients by ensuring all staff understand how to correctly handle personal health information.
