PRIVACY NEWSFLASH: ONTARIO INTRODUCES HEALTH PRIVACY LEGISLATION

Source: PrivaTech

Posted on January 5, 2004

      On December 17th, 2003 the McGuinty government introduced the Health Information Protection Act (HIPA). This bill is intended to establish consistent and comprehensive rules, safeguards and legal protections, governing the collection, use and sharing of health information.

      Oversight and enforcement of the new act would fall to Ontario's Information and Privacy Commissioner, Anne Cavoukian. According to Cavoukian, this is legislation that is urgently needed and long overdue.

      A health information custodian must make available to the public a statement that describes its information practices, how an individual can obtain access to or request correction of a record of personal health information about the individual and how to make a complaint to the custodian and the Commissioner.

      No health information custodian is permitted to collect, use or disclose personal health information without the individual's consent unless it is permitted or required by HIPA.
