Do We Share Information?
The hospital shares patients’ health information with health care providers at other hospitals, health care agencies, nursing homes, etc., who become part of the patient’s health care team for the purpose of their continuing care. Information is shared with agencies that fund the hospital, for example, OHIP, health insurance companies and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.
We may also provide personal information to hospital consultants, and professional advisors to assist the hospital to function and provide care to our patients. What we share with these agencies is bound by law.
