The Government of Yukon is committed to ensuring that your personal health information is protected and secure when health care services are provided to you.
Authorized health care providers may only access your personal health information in YHIN systems for the purpose of providing health care in accordance with the Health Information Privacy and Management Act (HIPMA).
HIPMA governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information across the territory. The legislation sets out safeguards that must be adhered and demonstrated before a health care provider can access any of the information available in Yukon’s new eHealth solutions within the Yukon Health Information Network.
Your health care provider is required, under HIPMA, to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your personal health information. Health care providers are required to undergo privacy training and sign a pledge of confidentiality before handling any personal health information.
More information about HIPMA and your rights under HIPMA is available at www.hss.gov.yk.ca/healthprivacy.php.
