Privacy and Canada’s Health Information Highway – A presentation by BC FIPA to the Information and Privacy Conference in Victoria — 14 Feb 2002

BC FIPA believes the issue of HEALTH INFORMATION PRIVACY as the most significant privacy issue of our time. This presentation outlines the importance of the right to privacy and the threats that “Health Info-structure” represents.

Provincial governments appear to believe that the diminution of privacy rights is essential to the creation of the “Canadian Health Info-way”.

BC FIPA disagrees. We think Canadians can have privacy rights AND the highest quality health care system.
