Privacy and Health Record Resource Handbook For Medical Practitioners in the Private Sector
In April 2015, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) commenced an assessment of the privacy policies of several GP clinics, including whether they were clearly expressed and up-to-date, and cover the required matters.
The OAIC worked with the AMA and other peak health organisations to ensure that their sample privacy policies were up to date and cover all necessary areas as required by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
The OAIC Report has published the report on their assessment findings which is available at: https://www.oaic.gov.au/privacy-law/assessments/general-practice-clinics-app-1-privacy-policy-assessment
