The Health Information Privacy and Management Act (HIPMA) governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information. All Yukon health care providers (referred to as custodians under the Act) must follow the Act.
What does the Act do?
HIPMA establishes rules to ensure the privacy and security of personal health information.
The Act gives people the right to access their own health information held by custodians. It also ensures that people have control over their information.
