HIPA - Diagnosis Privacy

The Saskatchewan Electronic Medical Record (EMR) program, in partnership with the Division of Continuing Professional Learning - College of Medicine would like to present the HIPA (Health Information
Protection Act) - Diagnosis Privacy online course.

This online course has been created and designed to assist you in creating your own Privacy Policies and Procedures manual to utilize in your practice. Once registered in this course you will have access to four primary modules which contain thorough guidelines, references, links to the HIPA Act and templates, etc. Each module will provide a step-by-step approach to creating a comprehensive Privacy and Security Policy manual. Within each module are references to sections and sub-sections of the HIPA act pertinent
to that component of the manual you will be producing. You will also have access to checklists that you may use to cross-reference each of the elements that go into the makeup of your manual.

To register for this course you will need to contact the Saskatchewan Medical Association (see the details below). This course is being delivered using the BlackBoard Learn™ Learning Management System and
can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection. You will also be able to access the content of this course with a tablet with an internet connection.
