The Physician Office System Program (POSP) offers a suite
of online resources to help physicians and clinic staff keep their
privacy knowledge up to date.
The requirements that form the essential privacy information for
the physician office are from:
- The Health Information Act (HIA) and
- The College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta
- The Canadian Medical Association Code of Ethics
