Find an innovative and comprehensive privacy solution to effectively complement SunnyCare, Sunnybrook’s electronic health record.
In 2012, Sunnybrook management chose to develop their own SunnyCare EHR to overlay all of their existing information systems as a “simple‐to‐use platform.” It was essential to Sunnybrook to incorporate Privacy by Design (PbD) into SunnyCare and comply with privacy legislation. Regional health privacy regulations prohibit a provider organization from using or disclosing personal/protected health information (PHI) about an individual where that individual has expressly prohibited the provider organization from using or disclosing it for a particular purpose.
