Controlled Access: Employees of RCH can request to control who has access to their information. The electronic information on the clinical viewer will be secured to prevent access by users other than those specifically authorised by the staff member. When the staff members attends as a patient for care, access will be granted to a selected group of users.
When the staff member ceases to be employed by RCH, the record will have controlled access removed unless otherwise arranged.
Note: When searching for Controlled Records, the search function will display no record found. Searching to obtain a UR number will need to be through the IBA patient master index (PMI) system to obtain the UR number.
HIS staff will only retrieve these records for patient care. The record will be made available to clinicians if the patient attends for care.
