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 handles 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 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.
