Privacy as an Enabler: Sharing Personal Health Information for Interoperability Primer

June 29, 2022

This primer provides an introduction to interoperability, an overview of Canadian privacy laws and some practical approaches to privacy for interoperability.

The primer outlines how privacy laws enable the sharing of patient data by providing guidance on how to share health data safely, with a patient’s consent, and the responsibilities of both parties when patient info is shared.
