Enhancing The Privacy Framework: An analysis of Privacy in Canadian and Brazilian health care
MetadataShow full item record
In the last decade, with organizations’ increased reliance on digital storage of information, privacy laws have been implemented and updated to help govern the collection, use, disclosure, storage and destruction of personal information. Canada’s federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Information Act (PIPEDA) and provincial acts, like Nova Scotia’s Personal Health Information Act (PHIA), have been fundamental in assisting to protect personal information. Emerging countries, like Brazil, are passing laws to protect information due to global economic pressures and hacking breaches to protect citizen’s personal information. With a privacy lens, analyzing domestic and foreign privacy laws in conjunction with analysis of a Brazilian neurological center, a supporting privacy framework has been developed. The proposed supporting framework addresses encryption and user roles when accessing information to balance accessibility and usability of personal information.
