Health Care Audit Event Standard

This standard ensures audit activities relating to collecting, using and disclosing personal health information can be electronically captured.


The health care audit event standard is based on identified Ontario legislation, clinical, business and technical requirements. We have also undertaken a thorough review, to ensure these consent directives are relevant to Ontario’s marketplace, and that they incorporate existing related pan-Canadian, and international standards.

Ultimately, this specification will contribute to providing consistency to collecting and exchanging patient information across the health care system.
