Privacy and Security of Health Information at CIHI  Core

The protection of individual privacy, the confidentiality of records and the security of information are essential to CIHI. In support of this, CIHI has in place a comprehensive and integrated privacy and security program.

The Privacy and Security Framework tells the story about how CIHI approaches data governance and privacy and security protection from an integrated perspective. The Framework references all of CIHI's existing policies, protocols, and procedures in a central location. It is a living document that captures all of the major components of CIHI's privacy and security programs (and best practices) and that can be updated as CIHI's privacy and security programs evolve.

A key element of CIHI's privacy and security program is CIHI's Privacy Policy, 2010, which sets out the rules on the collection, use, disclosure, retention and destruction of personal health information and de-identified data.

FAQ

The price you pay for an item depends on the type of organization to which you belong. Until you sign in, we do not know which price applies to you.

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.

If you want the downloadable version of an available publication and the price is free, as is often the case, you can simply download the file (usually a PDF) by clicking the Download link. If your browser does not support PDFs and you do not have a PDF viewer, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge at Adobe.com. If the publication is not available in a downloadable media type or the price is not free, you will have to add it to your cart so that you can order it. You must be signed in before adding an item to your cart, so if you have not already done so, you will be redirected to the sign in screen.

If you wish to get more information about a publication before deciding to add it to your cart, click the View link under the Details column for the version of the publication that interests you. This will give you more detailed information about that particular publication.

The History link only appears on the top menu bar once you have signed in. To sign in, enter your username and password in the top-right corner of your screen.
