Privacy classification of health information in Alberta - issues, proposed solution and benefits

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This research paper reviews issues, proposes a solution and discusses the benefits of privacy classification for health information in Alberta. After a review and analysis of privacy classification of health information in Canada and the United Sates of America, this paper builds on existing privacy best practices and other work already completed. It recommends that by linking privacy classification guidelines with corresponding security classification guidelines and appropriate safeguards, privacy protection requirements could be made easy to understand and act upon. In addition, including appropriate definitions in the Alberta Health Information Regulation could have a positive impact by enforcing privacy protection and creating greater public confidence that their health information is protected.
