The Health Information Privacy and Management Act (HIPMA) regulates the collection, use, disclosure and management of personal health information by custodians.
The IPC is responsible for overseeing how HIPMA is administered to ensure its purposes are achieved. To carry out this responsibility, the IPC has a number of powers including that she may advise custodians, promote best practices, comment on breach reports received, and make any recommendations she determines are appropriate. She also has the power to investigate complaints about any alleged non-compliance of HIPMA by custodians.
This website has information that will help custodians meet their obligations under HIPMA.
