Physicians work within the health system every day. More than anyone, they understand the competing demands of new policies and procedures on their time and practices.

With this in mind, the Centre for Health Information is seeking input from physicians on the development of policies and procedures for the Pharmacy Network, the provincial drug information system and component of the NL Electronic Health Record. These policies will govern health care practices to protect personal health information associated with the Pharmacy Network.

To facilitate feedback from physicians and other stakeholders, the Centre recently released a consultation paper outlining consent management tools, guidelines around access to personal health information, and the process for requesting a correction to personal health information. Feedback on the consultation paper can be submitted to the Centre and will contribute to Pharmacy Network policy development.

Physicians can download a copy of the Patient Consent Management and Access Consultation Paper.
