Manitoba's ombudsman has launched an investigation after the names of high-profile individuals, who were moved to the top of an MRI-waiting list, were leaked to the media, Toronto Metro reports. Ombudsman Charlene Paquin said she was "extremely concerned" that the disclosure was a breach of the Personal Health Information Act. "I cannot stress enough how important it is for all trustees of personal health information to remember that they are in possession of some of the most sensitive information about Manitobans," she said. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority said it will also hold its own internal review on the situation.
