Being POPI compliant is essential to your practice
As the enforcement of the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act came to light 1 July 2021, it’s now more important than ever to ensure your medical practice is POPI compliant.
If you have not yet started developing your fool-proof POPI strategy, it’s important to answer these questions:
- How do you capture patient information?
- How do you protect your patient data?
- Do you know what POPI requires when it comes to processing personal patient information?
How you answered the above questions could have a serious impact on your practice once POPI comes into effect. However, even if you can’t answer these questions definitively, it’s important to keep in mind that POPI compliance is an extension of your current patient information protocols that were implemented in accordance with South African medical guidelines.
If your patient records are digitally stored, or if you plan to migrate to a digital practice management solution in the near future, we’ve put together this eBook to help you understand how POPI affects your medical practice and what you can do to successfully implement your POPI Compliance Plan.
