The use of electronic communication and virtual care has expanded rapidly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, prompting healthcare practitioners to rapidly adopt a variety of technologies to stay connected with their patients. As clinics settle into the 'new normal' of communicating with patients electronically and using virtual care, it is increasingly important to ensure that clinics are using these new tools securely and ensuring patient confidentiality is protected.
This online webinar will provide an overview of privacy & security best practices when communicating electronically with patients and other healthcare practitioners. It will feature a short presentation, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
At the end of this one-hour webinar and interactive panel discussion, participants will be able to:
1. Define common guidelines around obtaining and documenting informed consent for electronic communication with patients
2. Apply best practices on how to use commonly used tools to securely communicate electronically with patients
