Canadian Health Information: A Practical Legal and Risk Management Guide, Third Edition
Written by Lorne E. Rozovsky and Noela J. Inions.
Published by Butterworths, 2002.
|Canadian Health Information is specifically written for
health professionals, administrative staff, health planners and consultants,
and their legal counsel. It is designed as a practical guide that is a quick
and easy reference.
It is a succinct description of the legal issues affecting the practical day-to-day use of health information in health organizations. This edition takes into account that health information goes far beyond what have traditionally been referred to as "health records" or, in the past, "patient records". It recognizes that health information may be found in hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, the offices of solo physicians and other health practitioners, home care agencies, health associations and government agencies.
The focus of the book is on the prevention, or, at least, minimization of the risks of lawsuits and other legal proceedings, and discusses both the legal implications and risk management techniques.
Features of the third edition include:
This book provides quick answers to the myriad issues faced by health care facilities when it comes to gathering, maintaining and using confidential health information.
