Health care is undergoing a revolution driven by advances in information and communication technologies. Precision medicine, consumer health, virtual care, the Internet of things and other innovations are changing the very nature of health care, driving improvements in efficiency, effectiveness and healthcare outcomes. However, with each new innovation come new risks to the privacy and security of personal health information.

This program focuses on the health sector and the special requirements for ensuring the privacy of personal health information. It will cover critical privacy legislation, conducting a privacy risk assessment, assessing what privacy and security features to build into your products and services, implementing an affordable privacy management program and handling a privacy breach. The course is for anyone who is responsible for managing the privacy function in their organization, or is interested in being part of the organization’s privacy management team or are app developers, consultants and service providers of products for health care. Organized into three modules, the program provides the guidance needed to manage privacy throughout the information lifecycle.
