​How are clinic privacy processes impacted by CII?

  • CII falls under the Alberta Netcare umbrella which is covered by the Health Information Act
  • Alberta Health has filed a Privacy Impact Assessment for the CII project and the clinic custodian will be asked to sign an endorsement letter during onboarding with the eHealth team

​Do I need to tell patients their information will be shared to Netcare?

  • The Health Information Act requires providers to have the information from a Health Collection Notice available to patients and it can be in the form of poster, clinic TV screen, website, patient registration form, etc.
  • Providers are not required to have direct conversations with patients about CII
