Privacy Standards

Privacy standards tend to describe sequences of activities and the roles, rights, responsibilities, benefits and risks associated with the collection, use, and disclosure of information. Legislation, policies, best practices, guidelines, and process/management standards produced by standards development organizations (SDOs) that focus on the privacy of information – in electronic and paper formats – may fall under this general category. From a privacy perspective the EHR must comply with the following key legislative and policy drivers:

  • PHI Protection Act, 2004 (PHIPA)
  • Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA)
  • eHealth Ontario Privacy and Data Protection Policy 
  • eHealth Ontario PHI Privacy Policy
  • eHealth Ontario Personal Information Privacy Policy
  • Other relevant eHealth Ontario internal policies
