Digital Health Week
OntarioMD (OMD) is pleased to participate in
Digital Health Week (Nov. 14–20).
Digital Health Week is an annual celebration of everything digital health! During this time, we acknowledge, celebrate and raise awareness of the value that digital health brings to our health care system.
“Digital Health Week is always such an exciting week as we get to spotlight how technology has impacted the way we practice medicine. I feel this is a great year to recognize how we’ve evolved practicing medicine using technology. Is there too much technology? Is the tech working for you? If not, why not? If it is, tell us your success stories! Let us know on social media and don’t forget to tag our handles.
– Dr. Chandi Chandrasena, Chief Medical Officer, OMD

Year in Review: New Developments in Privacy, Cybersecurity, and Virtual Care: Tuesday, November 15, 2022 – 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Virtual care is now an established part of clinical practice. Throughout 2022, regulatory authorities have introduced new guidance for virtual care and the digital health tools that enable it. Among other things, Canada’s Privacy Commissioners issued a statement encouraging clinicians to wind downown the use of fax and other unsecured, analogue technologies in favour of more secure alternatives. The CPSO has also introduced a new Virtual Care Policy. In addition, a new Physician Services Agreement was reached, which includes standardized billing codes for virtual care and mandates the use of “Verified Virtual Visit Solutions”. In this session, OntarioMD’s General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer will provide an overview of these developments and will provide practical recommendations for the delivery of virtual care.
Presented by Ariane Siegel, General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer, OMD
