Access and Privacy Best Practices in Health Care

August 3, 2022 - Diane Aldridge, Deputy Commissioner

On May 20, 2022, the Commissioner and I were invited to host a virtual session for the Meadow Lake Tribal Council titled, Access and Privacy Best Practices in Health Care. In order to ensure that a wider audience has the opportunity to experience what we talked about, we recorded the session which is now available at the following: Access and Privacy Best Practices in Health Care.

We recognize that indigenous organizations will choose to interact with the provincial health care system in different way and as they do, they will need to consider access and privacy issues. In helping them chart the course forward, in the session we emphasized the importance of protecting personal health information in an organization’s custody or control regardless if a trustee as defined by The Health Information Protection Act and the need to have a privacy breach response plan in place.

If your organization is ever interested in participating in a similar session, please contact us at intake@oipc.sk.ca and we will see if we can accommodate your request.
