IPC orders Rouge Valley to implement significant changes to protect patient health information

The Toronto Star spoke with Acting Commissioner Brian Beamish yesterday about the investigation into the two significant privacy breaches at Rouge Valley Health System and Health Order HO-013, released yesterday:

“This kind of behaviour, whether it’s snooping out of curiosity or taking information for financial gain, is unacceptable, and staff should be clear that if they do it, there’s a good chance they’ll get caught,” Beamish told the Star. “But there’s also a message out to the health care profession that they have an obligation to make sure that there are safeguards in place to prevent and to detect this kind of activity.”
