What is information governance in healthcare?

Information governance helps manage and control information by supporting the organisation’s activities and ensuring compliance with its duties. Patients and service users entrust their personal information to healthcare organisations, creating distinct requirements for confidentiality, privacy, and security.

IG is the way in which the NHS and other health and social care providers handle all of its information, in particular, the personal and sensitive information relating to patients and employees.

What is the purpose of information governance?

The purpose of the assessment is to enable organisations to measure their compliance against the law and central guidance and to see whether the information is handled correctly and protected from unauthorised access, loss, damage and destruction.

Information governance describes the holistic approach to managing information by implementing processes, roles and metrics to transform information into a business asset. The purpose of the IG framework is to formally establish an organisation’s approach to the handling and management of information.

Why is this information governance course important?

The effective delivery of healthcare services requires the substantial collection, processing and exchange of personal information and data. Ensuring the appropriate collection, use and security of this information is a significant legal responsibility for healthcare organisations and individual healthcare workers.

Recent high-profile cases of personal data loss and breaches of confidential information, with a significant number of incidents coming from the health sector, have, however, focused and renewed the requirement for all healthcare staff to have an awareness of their responsibilities in using and safeguarding sensitive information.

Data Security has always been important but has become more complex and time-consuming to manage now that technology is so central to the way we deliver health and care.
