Welcome to Get HIP! This will be a regular communication aimed at providing information about Health Informatics & Privacy to the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry (FoMD). We will provide information on topics such as health privacy law, privacy and health research, electronic health records and the upcoming province-wide Connect Care initiative. The goal is to ensure that everyone within the FoMD is current on the latest trends in Health Informatics & Privacy, and to help navigate the often complex and ambiguous issues that arise in this field.
