The New Privacy Laws

The new Australian Privacy Principles came into effect from 12th March 2014.

Whether you are an independent medical practitioner, a general practice, specialist medical practice or a surgical practice – the same privacy laws apply to you.

Understanding the Australian Privacy Principles and how they apply to your practice is important. More importantly, what steps do you need to take to ensure you are compliant?

  • Is it ok to keep paper files at your practice?
  • Is your backup policy secure enough?
  • Are there any limitations on using / sending data overseas?
