SWSPHN Webinar - Medical Information, Privacy and Data Protection
To encourage medical practitioners to think, understand and know about their legal responsibilities in regard to protecting the health information of their patients.
Take home messages:
• The health sector is the sector that experiences the most data breaches, and therefore protecting the medical information of patients is important.
• As medical practitioners have a legal responsibility to protect the medical information of their patients, a clear understanding of the legislation that covers medical information is important.
• If medical practitioners do not fulfil their obligation to their patients in regard to their medical information, they can face serious legal and financial consequences.
