Privacy and Security
eDOCSNL has developed privacy and security resources to assist physicians and their staff in their transition to the provincial electronic medical record program. To ensure all eDOCSNL participants maintain policies and procedures that meet the requirements of the Newfoundland and Labrador Personal Health Information Act, and the Newfoundland and Labrador College of Physicians and Surgeon’s Bylaw 6, eDOCSNL Privacy and Security Resources should be utilized to develop a clinic’s privacy and security program.
The following resources are available for adoption and use:
- Steps in Creating a Privacy and Security Policy Manual
- Sample Privacy and Security Manual
- Privacy and Security Checklists
- Agreement Templates
- Form and Letter Templates
- Reference Manual
- Privacy Poster
If at any time you have questions about the development of our resources or implementing privacy and security policies in your practice, please contact eDOCSNL.
