HIFIS 4.0 - Health Agencies and PHIPA

Does anyone using HIFIS 4.0 have health agencies on-boarded? We have received concerns from our mental health sector that the consent form/HIFIS data sharing agreement is not sufficient as they are legislated under PHIPA.

Hi Erin,
There are other jurisdictions that have begun conversations with their health agencies when on-boarding them onto their HMIS. They are exploring possible solutions like a separate data sharing agreement with their Health Information Custodians (HICs), which may work under PHIPA. If you are interested in exploring further, please shoot me an email and I will be happy to make the connection!
