Achieving Patient Privacy Across a Canadian District Health Authority
Linda Levesque, Manager of Health Information Services and Privacy Lead at St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, a regional site of the Guysborough Antigonish Strait Health Authority in Nova Scotia, will discuss her organizations efforts to protect patient privacy along with the lessons learned and the strategies that were put in place, before, during and after their patient privacy monitoring implementation. Areas she will address include determining where privacy risk management expertise exists in the organization to determine what to audit, be it for a given system or as part of an organization-wide privacy risk mitigation strategy; what education is needed for system users and auditors; what policies need to be put in place and processes need to be built and resourced in moving from a purely reactive complaints-based auditing model to a model that now includes a proactive auditing component. Most importantly, Ms. Levesque will highlight the need to maximize accountability to patients and the Board given available resources and legislative or policy requirements.
