  • Building business processes to support the future state of RITHIM, including establishment of harmonization processes.
  • Developing Committee for Harmonized Health Impact, Privacy, and Ethics Review (CHIPER) policies and procedures with the recent approval of chair, vice-chair and member terms of reference.
  • Appointing four new Provincial Health Research Privacy Committee (PHRPC) members and adding a new committee vice-chair role.
