Your patients depend on you as their healthcare provider, and your IT shouldn't get in the way. Compudata can help improve your practice by personalizing our technology services to meet your needs while ensuring you are both secure and compliant.

Don't let these regulations stunt your ability to utilize digital medical records. We can help you meet both PHIPA and PIPEDA compliance standards to take advantage of modern technology and streamline your operations without adding overhead.

Compliance with both PHIPA and PIPEDA doesn't mean sacrificing technology to keep your practice agile.

The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) was established by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada applies to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information in the course of a commercial activity. Non-compliance is extremely risky. Fortunately, Compudata has a strong understanding of IT security solutions and compliance pertaining to the healthcare industry and can implement new solutions to enhance your day-to-day workflows without stepping out of bounds with the rules.
