New OntarioMD Privacy and Security Training Module is available!

December 13, 2017


OntarioMD supports physician practices that have chosen a certified electronic medical record (EMR) system to manage patient information, providing them with valuable education, tools and tips to ensure they have the safeguards in place to protect Personal Health Information (PHI) and information about their practices. 

The OntarioMD Privacy and Security Training Module covers topics such as safeguarding PHI and other confidential data from breaches, and how to comply with obligations under Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA). 

The OntarioMD Privacy and Security Training Module was developed with critical input from the College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSO), the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and eHealth Ontario. The OntarioMD Privacy and Security Training Module has been certified as a Self-Learning Program by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to two Mainpro+ credits. 

Training is available at OntarioMD.ca, and can be accessed from any device that connects to the Internet. You will need a user account and registered to OntarioMD.ca to access the training.
