How Your Information in SCM is Protected
Authorized users are restricted in terms of the information they can access based on their role in the Region. This means that access permissions and other security credentials are set up so users have the information they need to know to perform their jobs.
For example, a Registered Nurse will only have access to the patients they are caring for on their unit; they cannot access patients on other units without providing a reason (this "override" is a mandatory requirement). Audits are routinely performed on electronic health records that have been accessed using the "override" functionality.
Another example, a registration clerk will have access to patient demographic and registration information, but will not have access to clinical documentation or results, whereas a physician will have access to all this information.
Access to SCM is provided through a secure network and authorized users require both an SHR and SCM user account.
Access to SCM is logged and audited. Monthly audits, such as same-name look-ups are reviewed by Privacy and Access Department. Random audits by user and patient are also conducted by the Privacy and Access Department.
