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.

Over the coming months the following resources will become available for adoption and use:

  • Reference Manual
  • Checklists
  • Policy and Procedure Guidelines
  • Reference sheets
  • Form and Letter Templates
  • Privacy Poster

Once available, the reference manual in conjunction with the supporting resources will provide a basis for an eDOCSNL privacy and security program.

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.
