eCHN Privacy & Security
eCHN operates as a not-for-profit, government funded organization dedicated to providing electronic solutions that enable the secure sharing of personal health information ("PHI") between authorized health care providers. The eCHN system gathers millions of paediatric patient records from interactions within the Ontario healthcare system, for use in the delivery of clinical care. eCHN receives paediatric data from contributing member organizations and assembles the data in the form of a single electronic health record.
eCHN understands the need to build trust and provide transparency for its general privacy practices with the public, its members and patients. eCHN meets this commitment through an extensive Privacy and Security Program which builds privacy controls into operational processes, as well as ensures privacy best practices are included in all new initiatives that eCHN undertakes.
