NEHTA proud to be a Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) partner

Privacy Awareness Week (PAW) is an initiative of the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities forum (APPA) held every year to promote awareness of privacy issues and the importance of the protection of personal information. Privacy Awareness Week 2013 is from 28 April to 4 May 2013 and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) will celebrate the week with a series of events and the release of new privacy guidance and products. Their focus for PAW 2013 is privacy law reform.

NEHTA's Privacy team provides specialist advice on privacy, consent and medico-legal issues relevant to all work streams across NEHTA to ensure the privacy expectations of NEHTA's stakeholders and the broader community are met. Engaging with key stakeholders and jurisdictional representatives and contributing to the development of a national legislative framework for privacy and consent in eHealth has been a key focus of NEHTA's privacy initiatives.

As a PAW partner, NEHTA has committed to promoting privacy and good privacy practices within NEHTA. As part of PAW, the Privacy team is presenting to NEHTA staff on the top privacy concerns for 2013.
