Mass notification launched after inappropriate access to 1,756 Winnipeg patients’ data

Canadian Press reports:

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority says it will be contacting hundreds of patients in the coming weeks after a nurse inappropriately accessed their personal health information.

The authority says in a release that the nurse, who had access to the emergency department information system for work at one site, inappropriately searched information while working outside of the ER at the west-end Grace Hospital.

Concerns were raised on March 12 and a manager told the person responsible to stop accessing the data unnecessarily.
