Managing patient confidentiality and its challenges

17 Apr 2012, by Informa Australia


We had the opportunity to talk to Brooke Whiteside, Health Information Manager for Southern Health before she speaks at the 2nd Annual Managing Patient Confidentiality & Information Governance Conference on the 25th and 26th June in Melbourne.

We asked:

1. Can you give us a brief update on the operational challenges of collecting sufficient data, and how do you overcome these challenges, including the lessons learnt during the process?

2. What are the key benefits that your staff and patients will see as a result of the successful implementation of a new database for tracking and reporting?

3. How do you ensure the effective communication and engagement between clinicians and other stakeholders during the process?

4. You’re speaking at IIR’s 2nd Annual Managing Patient Confidentiality & Information Governance Conference taking place on 25th and 26th June in Melbourne; what would you like delegates to gain from your presentation?

Your comments are most welcome!
