Conclusions
3 Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) Came into force on November 1, 2004; Applies to organizations and individuals involved in the delivery of health care services (including the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care); The only health sector privacy legislation in Canada based on consent: implied consent within the circle of care, otherwise, express consent; The only health sector privacy legislation that was declared substantially similar to the federal legislation in 2005.
4 Mandate of the Legislation Requires consent for the collection, use and disclosure of PHI, with necessary but limited exceptions; Requires that health information custodians treat all PHI as confidential and keep it secure; Codifies an individual s right to access and request correction of his/her own PHI; Gives a patient the right to instruct health information custodians not to share any part of his/her PHI with other health care providers; Establishes clear rules for the use and disclosure of personal health information for secondary purposes including fundraising, marketing and research; Ensures accountability by granting an individual the right to complain to the IPC about the practices of a health information custodian; and Establishes remedies for breaches of the legislation.
5 Health Care as Defined in PHIPA Any observation, examination, assessment, care, service or procedure that is done for a health-related purpose and that: Is carried out or provided to diagnose, treat or maintain an individual s physical or mental condition; Is carried out or provided to prevent disease or injury or to promote health.
6 Who is Covered? Health Information Custodians (HICs) (s. 3(1)): The Minister of Health and Long-Term Care; Provincially-operated community or mental health centers; Municipal homes for the aged and rest homes; Municipally run ambulance services; Medical Officers of Health; Health professionals who are employed by school boards and correctional facilities.
7 Who is Covered? (Cont d) Health care practitioners, including: Members defined under Regulated Health Professions Act who provide health care; Drugless practitioners under the Drugless Practitioners Act who provide health care; Members of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers who provide health care; Persons whose primary function is to provide health care for payment.
8 Agents and Recipients Agents who use PHI - acts for or on behalf of the HIC in respect of PHI for the purposes of the HIC, and not the agent s own purposes, whether or not the agent has authority to bind the HIC, whether or not the agent is employed by the HIC and whether or not the agent is being remunerated. Recipients non-hics where they receive PHI from a HIC (e.g., employers, insurers).
9 General Rules for Agents Only permitted to collect, use, disclose, retain or dispose of PHI on custodian s behalf (e.g., rehab. centre) if: the custodian is permitted to do so; and it is in the course of the agent s duties. Must notify the custodian at the first reasonable opportunity if PHI is stolen, lost or accessed by unauthorized persons; Must comply with custodians information policies and practices.
10 The Recipient Rule Non-HICs that receive PHI from a HIC shall not use or disclose it for any purpose other than the purpose for which the HIC was authorized to disclose the PHI under this Act, or for the purpose of carrying out a statutory or legal duty, subject to the regulations or any other law (s.49(1)). A non-hic shall not use or disclose more PHI than is reasonably necessary to meet the purpose of the use or disclosure (s. 49(2)).
11 HICs Working for Non-HICs In many cases, school psychologists (HICs) will be working for a person/organization that is not a health information custodian (non-hic), such as a nurse working for a manufacturing company; There are many special considerations that are outlined in our Fact Sheet Health Information Custodians Working for Non-Health Information Custodians. For example, special considerations for HICs working for non-hic employers: Required not to share personal health information with non-hic employers, except with the consent of the individual, or as permitted by law; May need to store health information records in a place that is not within their own direct custody and control (e.g., psychologists working for school boards may be required to keep records in a central location in the school, accessible to other health care providers).
12 Agents of HICs Working for Non-HICs Agents (e.g., a file clerk) of a HIC (e.g., the school psychologist) may include persons working for a non- HIC employer (e.g., school board); Example: a school psychologist working for a school board may use the services of a staff person employed by the school board to schedule appointments, manage records and perform filing; this staff person would be considered an agent of the psychologist, thus also falling under PHIPA.
13 Disclosures to Non-HIC Employers A HIC (e.g., school psychologist) cannot disclose personal health information to a non-hic employer (e.g., school board) unless: The individual patient consents (e.g., where information is needed by the employer to accommodate a student); The disclosure is permitted or required by PHIPA (e.g., to prevent harm; for the purpose of contacting next of kin in circumstances where the individual is unable to consent, in the event of an injury or illness); The disclosure is permitted or required by another law (e.g., nurse must report to superintendent of correctional facility if an inmate is seriously ill).
14 Records Storage Normally, custodians keep records in a location under their direct custody and control (i.e., a locked filing cabinet in the psychologist s office); S. 14(2) of PHIPA permits records to be kept in a location other than a place in the psychologist s control (e.g., central file room) if: The record is kept in a reasonable manner (files kept locked); and The individual consents (consent may be implied).
15 HICs as Agents of FIPPA/MFIPPA Institutions HICs as agents (working for) FIPPA/MFIPPA institutions: A psychologist/social worker providing health care in school is governed by PHIPA; the school board is governed by MFIPPA; If a HIC is an agent of FIPPA/MFIPPA institution, within the meaning of s.51(3), PHIPA access provisions do not apply.
16 Access FIPPA/MFIPPA access rules preserved for HICs who work in institutions (s. 51(3)); FIPPA/MFIPPA HIC may refuse access to PHI on some grounds set out in FIPPA/MFIPPA (s.52(1)(f)): Cabinet information; Advice to government; Prejudicial to law enforcement.
17 Access to a Minor s Personal Health Information Section 52 gives an individual the right of access, subject to certain exemptions, without reference to their age or capacity; List of persons who may consent to the collection, use or disclosure of PHI (s. 23); For cases of incapacity, there is a ranked list of substitute decision-makers (s. 26).
18 Persons who may consent Capable child who is at least 16 years old may authorize someone else to act on his or her behalf (s. 23(1)ii); Parent may consent where child is capable and under 16 years old unless the information relates to: treatment decision, made by the child, under Health Care Consent Act (s. 23(1)i); or Counseling, in which the child has participated on his or her own under Child and Family Services Act (s.23(1)ii); In the event of a conflict between capable child and parent, child s decision prevails (s. 23(3)).
19 Substitute Decision-Makers (SDMs) Ranked list of SDMs in order of priority: 1. Guardian of person or of property; 2. Attorney for personal care or property; 3. Representative appointed by Consent and Capacity Board; 4. Spouse or partner; 5. Child s custodial parent; 6. Parent with right of access only; 7. Brother or sister; 8. Any other relative; 9. Public Guardian and Trustee (as last resort).
20 Permissible Disclosures: Safety and Law Enforcement Purposes Derogations from the consent principle are allowed in limited circumstances, for example: To protect the health or safety of the individual or others (s. 40(1)); To a person carrying out an inspection, investigation or similar procedure that is authorized by a warrant or by law (s. 43(1)(g)); As required by law (s. 43(1)(h)).

24 Circle of Care: Sharing Personal Health Information for Health Care Purposes The IPC is launching a new paper to clarify the circumstances in which a health information custodian may assume implied consent and the options available to a custodian where consent cannot be implied; The term circle of care is not a defined term in PHIPA; The term commonly used to describe the ability of certain health information custodians to assume an individual s implied consent to collect, use or disclose personal health information for the purpose of providing health care, in circumstances defined in PHIPA.
25 Circle of Care Working Group Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner; Ontario Medical Association; Ontario Hospital Association; College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario; Ministry of Health and Long Term Care; Ontario Association of Community Care Access Centres; Ontario Long Term Care Association; Ontario Association of Non-Profit Homes and Services for Seniors.
26 Circle of Care: Sharing Personal Health Information for Health Care Purposes Elements of Consent The consent of an individual for the collection, use or disclosure of personal health information by a health information custodian: must be a consent of the individual or his or her substitute decision maker; must be knowledgeable; must relate to the information that will be collected, used or disclosed; and must not be obtained through deception or coercion.

32 Conclusions School psychologists are health information custodians who must be aware of multiple special considerations under PHIPA; Employers are not health information custodians under PHIPA; Employers are institutions under MFIPPA; School psychologists must be aware of both children s and parents rights under PHIPA, their discretion to disclose PHI in urgent circumstances, and their right to share PHI on the basis of implied consent, within the circle of care.
