Privacy Impact Assessment
A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) helps to identify and address potential privacy risks that may occur in a dental office. A PIA is used for information systems, administrative practices and policy proposals that relate to the collection, use or disclosure of individually identifying personal or health information.
All Custodians (Dentists, Denturists and Hygienists) are required to submit a PIA for each office they own.
Toothe is pleased to offer PIA completion customized to your office, along side our state-of-the-art Toothe Secure Messenger which ensures ongoing HIA Compliance for secure and encrypted communication, which protects both your patients’ information as well as yourself.
Attention Alberta Custodians
In the Province of Alberta, a Privacy Impact Assessment is required by the Health Information Act (s 64).
