The sharing of internal and external data in an OHT requires, in the event of an electronic network, compliance with the rules of the PUE (IEE) (HINP). [4] These rules require agreements between the HINP that provides the network and the NICs within the network. Simply put, all NICs within an OHT network must be parties to a hinp agreement. In addition, any exchange of reciprocal data with a regional or regional supplier tool requires an HINP agreement between the OHT or its members and the tool provider. [13] One aspect of an “agency” framework is that it probably could not be used as a vehicle to authorize an OHT to collect, use and disclose PIS, as suggested by the PHIPA amendments. The “agent” unit would not have a separate legal status or liability under the PHIPA, separate from the OHT members on behalf of whom it acts. As noted above, the likely characterization of such an authorization, if the OHT is not included, should relate directly to the members themselves, unlike their “OHT agent.” The exchange of data between members of an OHT can be done in a fairly simple way, for example by an agreement or a regulatory framework adopted by all members. This agreement or framework may fall under the OHT`s operating and governance documentation. However, the exchange of data with other OHTs and external supplier-oriented resources is likely to be more complex. Other complications will result in data sharing between members and their OHT. It may be possible to structure data exchanges and external supplier relationships for an unconsolidated group using an agency framework in which a designated legal entity. B, for example, an OHT member or possibly an OHT service provider, is empowered to establish these relationships on behalf of OHT members. The framework would include members who give the notified agency the legal authority to act on its behalf and thus enter into appropriate agreements to document the OHT`s external data exchange relations.

[12] However, in this unincorporated OHT model, these relationships remain individually from the point of view of legal liability with members, not with a separate OHT unit, although the “agent” is the party that sticks to external agreements. [13] In addition, the simplest approach would be for a landlocked OHT unit to enter into the necessary data exchange relationships of an OHT.
