The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario announced it will investigate a data-sharing arrangement between U.S. health organization IQVIA and a company that sells electronic medical record software to doctors in the province, the Toronto Star reports. The Star first reported the unnamed software company sold anonymized data to IQVIA. The company has access to the medical records of 5 million Ontario citizens. “The article indicates that information from patient records is being provided to private sector organizations,” the privacy commissioner’s office said in a statement. “We have reason to believe that these arrangements may be contrary to the law.”
