Like other medical services, all data must be collected and securely stored according to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA).
The only people accessing personal data are those who are collecting it. Clinicians who are overseeing your care (the intake team) would be the only people who would access your data, and only on a need to know basis. Data can be viewed as a cohort by the quality improvement lead, but this data has been anonymized (no names or overtly identifying qualities). Any information you share with a clinician is only known by that clinician, unless another member of our team has a “need to know”.
Collection and Use of Information. Personal information should only be collected when it relates directly to and is necessary for a program or activity of RTT, and only from the individual, rather than from a third party. When personal information is collected from an individual, the individual should be informed of the purpose for collecting the information. Personal information can only be used for the purpose for which it was obtained or compiled, or for a use consistent with that purpose. Personal information may be disclosed to other RTT staff on a “need-to-know” basis.
