The Role of PHIPA

PHIPA provides a set of rules for:

Consent - Ensuring that patients' consent is obtained for the collection, use, and disclosure of their personal health information.

Maintaining Confidentiality and Security - Safeguarding personal health information through secure practices.

Digital Security - Implementing robust networks, firewalls, and computer systems to protect healthcare data.

Accessing and Updating Information - Managing access and updates to personal health information in a secure manner.

Fundraising and Marketing - Establishing guidelines for using personal health information in fundraising and marketing.

Accountability and Complaints - Addressing complaints and inaccuracies in personal health information.

Breach Management - Handling breaches to the legislation effectively and efficiently.

CedarCreek is here to answer your questions and address your concerns whenever you need us. Reach out to us and let’s ensure your clinic’s compliance with PHIPA together.

If your service provider does not keep an audit log of remote connections made to your environment, this means your service provider is not PHIPA compliant. You should also understand as a health data custodian, that you should not request your service provider to use a tool that does not keep an audit log.
