Information Governance SIG

Market Needs

The current approach to information governance is the major barrier preventing interoperability between the consumer and statutory sectors. A better capability is needed for sharing data so that the information necessary for delivery of care is available and so individuals can self-care and manage their health. Many new innovations for self-care and redesign of statutory services are held back because of the emphasis on protecting data and lack of IG guidance on sharing data.
