Ontario Regulation made under the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 - Amending O. Reg. 331/11, which amends O. Reg. 329/04 (General)
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004
Summary of Decision:
Approved as proposed.
Summary of Proposal:
This amendment extends the revocation date of section 6.2 of O. Reg. 329/04 under the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 to January 1, 2016. Without the amendment, section 6.2 would have otherwise been revoked on December 31, 2014, leaving a gap in the privacy framework under which eHealth Ontario creates and maintains the EHR.
There is no fiscal impact; the amending regulation does not affect business or introduce new costs / financial burden to stakeholders or the Government.
