11 Ensuring that the patient requesting access is the subject of the record they wish to access, or their proxy. It is not about “real world” identities; only as “known to the practice”. Proxies also need to have their identity verified. Three options: Documentation – Two documents, typically: Passport or photo driving licence (if both, this is sufficient). Bank statement (not utility bill). Vouching The person is “well known” to the authorised member of the Practice team. Vouching with documentation Known, but not well known. Medical record used to verify information by interview. What is Identity Verification?

12 Patient Summary Document: Online Services Release - Patient Summary.pdf Before patients can access their Patient Summary, practices must ensure the following: Patient Identification Seen - You should be recording that you have seen patient identification when registering patients for Online Services and added the Read code 91B.00 Patient Registration Data Verified to the patient record. This is an NHS requirement and ensures that the patient accessing Online Services is indeed your registered patient. Access to Patient Summary - In order for your patients to view their Patient Summary data, you must add the following Read code to each relevant patient record. INPS Vision Configuration

13 Patient Summary Important: You may wish to review patient records before allowing patients to access their summary. You can track patients with or without this Read code using the Online Services Clinical Audit. You must only record 93440 Electronic record notes summary verified if the patient already has 91B..00 Patient Registration Data Verified recorded. Only patients with the exact Read code 93440 Electronic record notes summary verified (and NOT any others within the Read category/hierarchy) will be able to see their Patient Summary data.

16 Document: NWCSU Privacy Impact Assessment Proforma.doc Privacy impact assessments (PIAs) are a tool which can help organisations identify the most effective way to comply with their data protection obligations and meet individuals’ expectations of privacy. An effective PIA will allow organisations to identify and fix problems at an early stage, reducing the associated costs and damage to reputation which might otherwise occur. It is highly recommended that you complete the PIA included in the pack. Additional information can be found at: Privacy Impact Assessment
