Oct 29 2014

Acting Commissioner Brian Beamish has called for tougher measures by calling for more prosecutions against those who commit serious breaches under Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act. In an interview with the Toronto Star, the Commissioner said that, “People know generally they shouldn’t be doing this. They need to know they will be found out and that there will be consequences … this would send a strong message to health professionals that this is not okay.”
