About

The Privacy Law and Information Management in Health Care course offered by York University will discuss how health care has accounted for more privacy breaches than any other industry.

Overview

What you will study

The number of incidents continues to rise as health-care institutions are frequently in the news for mismanaging personal health information. The Privacy Law and Information Management in Health Care course offered by York University will discuss these issues. 

Breaches and missteps can result in significant reputational risk and institutional liability. Maintaining adequate privacy around health information is a core priority of patients, medical institutions and professionals, software vendors, and clinical researchers.A web of regulatory instruments and best practices have developed to protect sensitive medical data. These ensure that only those who require access for treatment or research purposes are able to view this most personal category of private information. Failure to adopt adequate protective initiatives can leave patients vulnerable to the loss of highly sensitive personal information and medical organizations liable for breeches that can lead to class actions and a loss of trust by their patient populations.
