Privacy Set of Rules (SOR)

This is the wiki for the development of the Privacy Set of Rules (SOR) that will be the basis for the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the Privacy Guidelines AO. Healthcare facilities will also evolve their own Privacy Protocols (PP) based on this SOR.

The initial rules were consolidated outputs from privacy workshops in Bacolod, Davao, Palawan, Metro Manila (including subsequent discussions via the PEG Mailing List).

Stakeholders may help revise this document.

The proposal for a MOA between PHIE and participating health care institution can be an option to support the IRR of Privacy Act. But what is the legal personality behind PHIE? Will the NPC and/or DOH and/or DOST be part of this MOA? Another option is through the LGU. eHATID LGU partners have started issuing local resolutions on ehealth operational issues, copies of which are being sent to DOH KMITS and DOST PCHRD.

Please see how you can “distribute” the concerns under “General Guidelines and Penalty Clause” section. The section looks weak.

May I know if there is a consolidated output from the Palawan workshop? Thank you

there was a question from the Davao workshop whether there should be a MOA between PHIE and a participating health care institution.
