Frequently Asked Questions


eHealth takes great care to protect your personal health information. Records are kept in strict confidence and are only disclosed to those authorized to see them. Privacy safeguards outlined in The Health Information Protection Act (HIPA) apply to the information at eHealth.





Only health care team members involved in your care can view your personal health information. Those team members are aware of the need to maintain confidentiality. Access to your records is on a need-to-know basis. 

Each time someone looks at your health records, that information is recorded and tracked for auditing purposes. Some systems have the ability to allow you to “mask” your information. This will block access to a record. However, it can still be viewed in an emergency or if you give your consent. For more information on how to request a mask, please see “Restricting Access to Information”. 

Strict security safeguards have also been put in place. These safeguards are designed to protect information from unauthorized use or loss. 

HIPA's regulations are designed to protect your personal health information. eHealth is required by this legislation to make sure appropriate safeguards continue to be in place.

eHealth Saskatchewan is currently working to support access to MySaskHealthRecord for minors aged 12-17. The interim process is not available for those between the ages of 12-17 due to the possibility of sensitive information in MySaskHealthRecord; minors between those ages may be considered mature minors. 

Please remember that the information in MySaskHealthRecord contains personal health information beyond COVID-19 results. We apologize for the inconvenience at this time. 

For minors between the ages of 12-15, parents and guardians can request a copy of their personal health information in the provincial electronic health record by completing the form found under the Privacy Page of the eHealth Saskatchewan website and submitting it to the eHealth Privacy Service. Minors aged 16 older up can request their own information through paper copies using the same form. 

Please note when COVID-19 results are positive, the local Medical Health Officer and the ordering physician are immediately informed. Patients with positive test results will be notified of their results by medical authorities. If testing was ordered by a family physician, the physician will connect back with the patient.





Under HIPA, you have a right to request an amendment to the information in the eHR Viewer. If you would like to amend your health record you will need to talk to your health care provider.
