Ca: Alberta Health and Wellness, Nor-Don Collection Network

The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta has issued another opinion:

Summary: The Complainant complained that Nor-Don Collection Network (Nor-Don) had disclosed his health information to his spouse contrary to the Health Information Act (HIA) during a telephone call. In the alternative, he complained that Nor-Don had disclosed his personal information to his spouse contrary to the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). He also complained that Alberta Health and Wellness disclosed his health information to Nor-Don and that Nor-Don had used this information in contravention of the Health Information Act.

The Adjudicator found that Alberta Health and Wellness had disclosed the Complainant’s health information to Nor-Don in compliance with the Act, and that Nor-Don had used the information as permitted by the Act. The Adjudicator determined that the evidence did not establish that the Complainant’s health information or personal information had been disclosed by Nor-Don.
