Toronto Renaissance Hotel
Welcome to the 6th Annual PHIPA Summit (2012). Returning to the Toronto Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Toronto, the PHIPA Summit is a two-day affair, focusing again on Ontario’s Health Privacy legislation as well as establishing proven Health IM strategies.
Ontario’s health information privacy legislation must strike the right balance between allowing health care providers to quickly pass on the information needed for patient care to other health providers, while restricting unauthorized disclosure. As technology continues to ease information transfer, it also continues to blur the lines between disclosure vs breach, consent vs access denial or private vs personal.
Both the PHIPA legislation as well as the electronic records revolution have reinforced the fact that now is the time to better develop information management strategies, especially in the public health sector.
As Health Information Custodians continue to meet the various challenges presented to them in their work, the PHIPA Summit 2012 will help this community further develop strategies to meet these challenges head-on. Leadership, networking and knowledge sharing, now more than ever, should be a top priority for all of those charged with the task of managing health information, and protecting the privacy of patients.
