The Health Information Privacy Code 2020 (Privacy Commissioner website) is a Code of Practice issued by the Privacy Commissioner under section 32 of the Privacy Act which gives extra protection to health information because of its sensitivity.

It covers all health agencies and protects all personal health information relating to an identifiable individual. The Ministry has a responsibility to ensure it complies with this Code in respect of all health information entrusted to it. Please visit https://privacy.org.nz/privacy-act-2020/codes-of-practice/hipc2020/ for more information.

The Health Information Governance Guidelines (HISO 10064:2017) gives health providers guidance on how to collect and share personal health information legally, securely, efficiently and effectively.

This helps ensure public confidence in data privacy and security is maintained and that the best possible treatment and care is delivered to all New Zealanders. More information can be found here:
