Information security in general practice
Information security strategy
To ensure effective information security procedures, it is recommended to have clear policies and procedures to support your practice.
Polices should be created to support information security processes in your general practice. Your practice should document all policies and procedures for managing information security.
A policy and procedures manual provides information and guidance to your practice team on the protocols used in managing your information systems. This manual is used to clarify roles and responsibilities, and to facilitate induction of new practice team members.
Use the RACGP practice policy template sample to create your practice policies.
C6.4BOur practice does not store or temporarily leave the personal health information of patients where members of the public could see or access that information.
C6.4FOur practice has a policy about the use of email.
C6.4GOur practice has a policy about the use of social media.
