Privacy and Compliance

This quality improvement initiative has been reviewed and approved by an independent ethics review board.

Ensho uses industry-leading administrative, physical and technical safeguards to protect the health information they process on behalf of their customers against loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, inappropriate use and modification. This includes collecting and storing the minimum amount of patient information necessary for delivering reliable service to their customers.

Ensho applies the principles of Privacy by Design by:

  • Implementing asymmetric encryption protocols that de-identify the data in their possession in a manner that allows our customers to re-identify patients when necessary
  • Retaining information for the minimum amount of time necessary to deliver services
  • Restricting access to sensitive information to only those that interact with it
  • Making their data privacy and security policies publicly available

Ensho adheres to the health information privacy laws in each province where they provide services. You may view the specific privacy memorandum for your province using the links below:
