New Brunswick’s Task Force on Personal Health Information (PHIFT)
Co-chaired by Jean-Guy Finn and Kevin Malone, the Province of New Brunswick’s Task Force on Personal Health Information (PHIFT) was created in May 2008 to consult with New Brunswicker’s and advise the minister on new legislation to regulate the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information.
In October, 2007 New Brunswick’s PHI Task Force released a report entitled Balancing Privacy Rights and Access Requirements. The recommendations in the report strike a good balance between the protection of personal health information (PHI) and the need to use this information appropriately in order to improve patient care and, secondarily, better manage the health care system.
