The MS Word model provides an example of a document that can be used when designing ISAs. The code supports the responsible and legitimate exchange of personal data, the protection of personal data and aims to help public authorities to put into practice the fundamental principles of data protection. It was developed in consultation with the Office of the Data Protection Comptroller. There are also government programs that allow for a secure exchange of information, including the data innovation program and the Data BC program. In all situations where a registrant establishes medical records in a common group or medical record environment, a data exchange agreement must be reached on how to deal with issues of ownership, custody and permanent access of filers and individual patients, including after the removal, retirement or death of the filers. Where a registrant who establishes a medical record does not own the clinic and/or electronic medical record (EMR), issues relating to the retention, confidentiality and permanent access of individual filers and patients must be recorded in a formal contract with the owners and/or providers of EMR services. The code contains an information sharing sheet (PDF) that can help public sector staff assess the proposed information exchange activity and determine whether it is responsible and compatible with FOIPPA. When disputes arise, where there is no contractual agreement, filers must resolve their problems together and without affecting patients. Access to the necessary recordings for patient care information should never be impeded. In the event of a patient complaint, filers who practice without data exchange can expect criticism from clinic owners and medical directors. Registrants should consider abstaining from working in clinics where there is no agreement on data exchange. The university standard advises filers who are already working in such a patient care environment to seek legal advice, if necessary, to ensure that problems are dealt with in their entirety.
Clarity on the control and management of information contained in a common practice agreement can be achieved through the conclusion of a data-sharing agreement or an agreement between doctors. The CMPA`s Electronic Records Handbook [PDF] contains principles for data exchange for EMR/EHR agreements, as well as a presentation agreement that can serve as the basis for developing a data exchange contract with another party (for example. B hospital, health region or service provider) or with other doctors. A data sharing agreement may apply to multiple projects or a single specific project (data may be part of the PopData database or be available for a specific project and be time-limited). The information exchange instructions (ISA instructions) are specific to ministries and promote the responsible and legitimate exchange of information. They indicate the direction to be taken in the preparation of ISAs, even if an ISA is required and when it can be prepared at the discretion of the department. Where the exchange of information is authorized under THE FOIPPA, the protection of personal data is not incompatible with the transmission of personal data. The total use of data is governed by a data-sharing agreement between Population Data BC and you as a data provider. The agreement provides the essential governance basis for access to data for research authorized in the public interest, in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FIPPA) and other relevant legislation. The exchange of information is an important function of an effective public service. The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) allows public authorities to disclose personal data in certain circumstances. FOIPPA reflects the public utility of information exchange.
