What health information is an individual entitled to receive?

An individual has a right of access to their health information under Part 5 and Health Privacy Principle 6 (HPP 6) of the Act. This right applies when the information is held by a private sector organisation. It relates to all health information collected by the organisation on or after 1 July 2002.

A more limited right of access also applies to certain health information that is collected by a private sector organisation before 1 July 2002, including:

  • the individual’s health or disability history
  • the results of an examination or investigation
  • a diagnosis or speculative diagnosis
  • a plan or proposed plan of management
  • services provided or action taken
  • genetic information that is or could be predictive of health
  • other personal information about a donation of body parts.

In both cases an individual’s right to obtain access is subject to the grounds set out in HPP 6 that permit an organisation to lawfully refuse access.
