Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Health Information (PHI)
Veriport agrees to receive Personal Health Information (PHI) from the Client in accordance with the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 (Ontario) and its related regulations, as part of Veriport’s provision of services to and on behalf of the Client, and not on Veriport’s behalf or for Veriport’s own purposes. Veriport will only use as much PHI as is reasonably necessary to perform its obligations under the Agreement and will make PHI available only to those employees who require access in order to satisfy those obligations. Veriport will only use and disclose any PHI it receives from the Client as is permitted or required under the Agreement or the laws of Canada and/or the province of Ontario. Veriport will ensure that any of its agents or subcontractors to whom Veriport provides the Client PHI has agreed to the same restrictions and conditions that apply to Veriport with respect to PHI. Veriport shall not disclose PHI, or any information, to any affiliated or unaffiliated third party without the prior written consent of the Client.
Practices to Protect Personal Health Information
Veriport will employ appropriate safeguards to prevent theft, loss and unauthorized access, copying, modification, use, disclosure or disposal of PHI. Veriport will maintain privacy policies in accordance with Canadian and Ontario laws and these policies will be made available for inspection on request. Veriport will educate its employees on privacy laws and policies and take reasonable steps to ensure employee compliance through staff training, confidentiality agreements and employee sanctions. Veriport will ensure that its employees who are fired, resign or no longer require access to PHI from the Client return all PHI to the Client and can, thereafter, no longer access applications, hardware, software, network and facilities belonging to either Veriport or the Client. Veriport will revoke any user’s access to PHI if security is breached and on the Client’s reasonable request.
