Effective January 1, 2012, the Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) now extends to our industry. Niagara Health System supports this legislative change which enhances efforts to increase accountability and transparency across our industry.
Along with our Quality & Patient Safety Performance Data, we will now be posting corporate accountability documents including our current executive contracts. Moving forward, we will be posting other previously confidential information on our corporate website for the first time.
If you have any further questions regarding proactive disclosure, please contact the Public Affairs Department at ext. 47579.
For questions related to FIPPA and its application to the health sector, please contact the FOI and Privacy Office at ext. 46201 or for information on the process for making a FIPPA request please visit our Freedom of Information page.
