Questions about your legal rights surrounding health information post-pandemic?
FIPA has a history of considering the privacy and access issues that intersect your rights and personal health information. We originally launched www.healthinfoprivacybc.ca in 2011. Over the course of the pandemic, the site received a lot of attention.
A lot has changed in the past decade. To ensure current and accurate information, we’ve gone top to bottom with a legal review, implemented the changes and redeveloped the material over the last six months.
The newly minted resource – Your Health Information – is available online. Plus, with new contracts in place we aim to have it reviewed and updated annually to ensure you know when and what it captures. This same review and update process is being applied to all our core material. Stay tuned in the months ahead for more updates.
