We are looking for a writer to develop a report that analyzes the legislation and policies that govern the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information in the province of Ontario, Canada. The end product of this work will be a policy framework from the consumer’s point of view that identifies key barriers preventing citizens of Ontario from easy access to their own personal health information and includes:
• A review identifying privacy, security and access issues for citizens in Ontario resulting from:
o Legal and policy-based barriers
o Practical or real barriers
• Global examples of how other jurisdictions or the private sector have been able to overcome similar barriers and provide their citizens with access to their own health information
The report is anticipated to be between 20-30 pages long and must be completed by the end of March 2016. The freelancer will have to review existing documentation, prepare a report outline and drafts. The selected individual will work closely with the project coordinator who may be able to provide existing published and unpublished documentation that will support the development of the report.
Knowledge of privacy, security and access as related to health data is preferred.
Familiarity with Canadian and/or Ontario's health policy and legislation is strongly recommended.
