Sharon Village Care Homes provides a broad variety of healthcare services. To meet the needs and serve our residents and clients well, SVCH needs to collect, use and disclose personal health information.
You have the right to know how we collect, use and disclose personal health information. You have a right to expect that, to the best of our ability, personal health information held by SVCH remains accurate, confidential and secure.
SVCH is committed to maintaining the confidentiality and security of personal health information and we have implemented new practices to further safeguard information we collect. These new practices are aligned with the Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) and with the Canadian Standards Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information (CSA Code).
SVCH collects, uses, discloses and stores personal health information. This information is collected to help provide health care or payments for health care. This includes:
- Contact information and the contact information of next of kin or an individual who is authorized to act on behalf of the resident or client
- Information about health, health care history and the health care that the resident/client has been given
- Information about payment for health care including the resident’s or client’s Ontario Health Card number
We use this information and share it only with those who need to know that information. For instance, we use it to:
- Make decisions about the types of services required
- Provide direct patient care
- Communicate with other service providers
- Monitor provision of services and evaluate responses to services provided
- Administer services, strategic planning, quality control, research, teaching, risk management, allocate resources within the organization, and verify eligibility for services
- Verify eligibility for payment by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
- Meet legal and regulatory requirements
By providing us with your personal information, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that information as described in this Statement.
We will not, as a condition of supplying a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information beyond that required to enable us to provide the products or services requested.
The form of the consent that we will seek before collecting, using or disclosing personal information may vary depending upon the circumstances and the type of information, and includes express oral or written consent, implied consent or opt-out consent.
We will consider the sensitivity of the information and the individual’s reasonable expectations in determining how consent must be given.
You may refuse to give personal information and may, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, withdraw consent at any time to the continued use and disclosure of personal information previously collected.
The period of reasonable notice will vary depending on the nature of the information and its purpose to Sharon Village Care Homes.
We will inform you of the implications of refusing or withdrawing consent, which may have legal consequences or preclude SVCH from providing the services or other consideration requested.
