Updated HIPA Regulations and Proclaiming Certain Subsections of HIPA
Effective August 1, 2023, certain subsections of the Health Information Protection Act (HIPA) subsection 17(1), 18(2) and 18(4), have been proclaimed. Also, effective August 1 a new version of the HIPA regulations is in effect and should be available by the end of the week here. Below is a Q & A sheet issued by the Ministry of Health which explains the changes. Later my office will do a podcast on the changes but for now, the Q & A is a good summary of the things that have changed.
