Organisations covered by the Privacy Act have obligations under the Act to take reasonable steps to protect the personal information they hold from misuse, interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Theodore Medical adheres to the 14 Australian Privacy Principles to ensure that your health information is only used for your ongoing health care either with us or when referred for speciality health services including pathology and radiology.
Theodore Medical recognises that prevention of data breaches is much better than dealing with them after the fact.
Rest assured, Theodore Medical has a data breach response plan that is ‘at the ready’ in the unlikely event of a data breach. The purpose of the plan is to ensure that quick actions can be taken after discovering a data breach to then contain, report, advise and prevent such an event happening again.
