Questions on patient consent still linger in ProCare data collection debate

The four health IT companies that have referred Auckland primary health organisation ProCare to the privacy commissioner have rejected claims by the PHO that the forms patients sign when enrolling in a practice provide adequate consent for their data to be collected.

They have also questioned ProCare's claim that patients have been asked to fill out a new form as a result of the introduction of the National Enrolment Service (NES), a patient register that also provides up-to-date national enrolment and identity data for capitation-based funding (CBF) calculations.
