Your Personal Health Information
Access and Privacy in The WRHA
Manitoba has a law called The Personal Health Information Act (PHIA) that allows you to access your personal health information with limited exceptions. PHIA also requires that we keep your information private, safe and secure.
Your personal health information is recorded information about you, your health and health care that we keep in our records, including your name, address, Personal Health Identification Number (PHIN), information about your health, health care history, the care that you have been given and payment for your health care.
|PHIA has Been Amended!
On May 1, 2010 changes to PHIA will come into effect. So that staff working in the Winnipeg Health Region and Physicians can better understand the changes to the Act, video and PowerPoint presentations have been developed to assist with understanding the amendments.
