Pledge on Privacy

The term “personal information” as used in this policy refers to information such as a name, birth date, e-mail address, mailing address as well as health information or other discrete information that can be used to identify an individual. PASI will not collect, use or disclose any personal information without the individual’s consent. This consent is obtained in the course of a counselling intervention between a Pharmacist and Patient/Consumer in a participating retail pharmacy using PASI’s proprietary software. This consent is physically obtained by pharmacy staff on PASI’s behalf using the PASI proprietary software prior to any personal information being sent to PASI in connection with or for the purposes of supporting a particular education undertaking requiring the use of the personal information. In processing your personal information, PASI pledges to fully comply with all federal and provincial/territorial legislation relating to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information, including PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act) and provincial legislation such as PHIPA (Personal Health Information Protection Act - Ontario) and similar legislation in each other Province and Territory in Canada and their standards of privacy protection. In doing so, we ensure compliance by PASI employees and agents with strict standards of security and confidentiality. PASI has updated its Privacy Policy to incorporate the federal and provincial/territorial privacy legislation principals related to the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information of:

  • Accountability
  • Identifying purposes
  • Consent
  • Limiting collection
  • Limiting use
  • Disclosure
  • Retention
  • Accuracy
  • Safeguards
  • Openness
  • Individual access
  • Compliance

PASI expects all pharmacies using Access Point to abide by these standards of privacy protection as outlined in the End-User Licensing Agreement provided with the PASI software.

PASI will remain compliant to all privacy standards by incorporating the following principles into our Privacy Policy as follows:

  1. PASI assumes responsibility, to the extent within our control, for compliance with all laws relating to the collection, use, disclosure, retention and destruction of Personal Information.
  2. PASI has instituted policies and procedures that protect against the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information by persons not authorized to have this information. All fulfillment sources contracted in support of a patient program must sign a Restricted Uses Agreement ensuring they understand standard privacy policies, abide by them and immediately notify PASI of any breach.
  3. PASI collects, uses, discloses, retains and destroys Personal Information that we send or collect on behalf of those involved only for the purpose set out in the applicable consent form and for no other reason.
  4. PASI may use personal and prescription information to develop anonymous reports that do not contain any information that would permit PASI to identify an individual person. These reports may be provided to pharmacies, drug manufacturers or other relevant stakeholders. However, these reports cannot be used to identify individual patients and PASI takes appropriate steps to protect the security of this information.
  5. PASI uses adequate safeguards to protect Personal Information within our possession or control from inadvertent disclosure to persons who are not authorized to have this information. Safeguards include physical, organizational, and technical measures suitable for sensitive health information. All PASI employees are aware of the importance of maintaining the privacy of personal information.
  6. PASI will immediately inform those involved of any accidental or unauthorized use or disclosure of Personal Information.
  7. PASI will immediately inform those involved of any request for access to or disclosure of Personal Information sent to those involved by PASI or collected for PASI, and obtain consent prior to the granting of any such access or any such disclosure.
  8. PASI will cooperate with those involved in connection with any audit of Personal Information or the practices of those involved in relation thereto and in connection with any request to PASI for access to any Personal Information.
  9. PASI will make available, on request, policies regarding its handling of Personal Information.
