The alPHa Records Management Working Group formed in December 2010 as a result of health units' interest in records management issues.
In Spring 2011, the working group surveyed health units on current records management practices and identified areas of common strengths, weaknesses and barriers. From the survey, the working group identified three priority areas of action: the development of a common records retention schedule for Ontario health units; creation of a central repository for health unit records management practices; and advocacy for provincial leadership on policy setting and organizational requirements related to records management for health units.
Members of the Records Management Working Group include business administrators and records management staff from Ontario health units.
