4 1 Introduction Information is a vital asset, both in terms of the clinical management of individual patients and the efficient management of services and resources throughout the CCG. It plays a key part in clinical governance, service planning and performance management. It is therefore of paramount importance that information is efficiently managed, and that appropriate policies, procedures and management accountability and structures provide a robust governance framework for information management to assure and demonstrate the proactive use of information as determined by legislative acts, statutes, regulatory requirements and best practice. Information Governance is a framework for handling information in a confidential and secure manner to appropriate ethical and quality standards in a modern health service. It brings together within a singular cohesive framework, the interdependent requirements and standards of practice. Information Governance (IG) combines Information Security, Corporate Governance and Business Continuity, and the increasing legislative and regulatory requirements, into a single unified management framework. Information Governance is not simply a matter of good corporate housekeeping. Good Information Governance can undoubtedly lead to efficiency gains and make for more effective management. The CCG is required to have effective arrangements in place to govern the uses of information and information systems, as set out in the Information Governance Toolkit 2 Information Governance Framework Information Governance brings together a single Framework, the interdependent requirements and standards of practices in relation to the following associated information processing that encompass the following areas. Confidentiality Code of Practice Data Protection Act 1998 Freedom of Information Act 2000 Records Management Information Quality Assurance Information Security Management The Caldicott Principles This strategy cannot be used in isolation as information plays a key part in Corporate Governance, Strategic Risk, Clinical Governance commissioning service planning, delivery and performance. In addition Information Governance risks are identified and managed as part of the Information Governance Framework. The focus on the risks associated with information assets will be captured on the Information Asset Register. This will include the identification of Information Asset and Information Asset Owners, Information risk assessment and control measures and were necessary the completion of Privacy Impact Assessments and the agreement of Information Sharing Protocols Date approved: October 2013 THCCGIG9 Information Governance Strategy 4

The need to share service user information with partner organisations (health and social care) and other agencies in a controlled manner consistent with the interests of the service user and, in some circumstances the public interest.

6 5 Strategic Objectives Through implementing this strategy the CCG will establish robust information governance processes conforming to the Department of Health standards Ensure that all practices and procedures relating to handling and holding personal and corporate information are legal and conform to best and /or recommended practice. Ensure that clear advice is given to service users and patient about how their personal information is recorded, handled, sorted and shared by the organisation and its partners. Service users will be provided with guidance, available in various formats to explain their rights, how their personal information is handled, how they can seek further information and how they raise concerns. Provide clear guidance to staff and ensure that they understand and apply the principles of information governance to their working practice in relation to protecting the confidentiality and security of personal information and to ensuring the safe keeping and handling of corporate business information, ensuring compliance with appropriate legislation. Maintain a clear reporting structure and ensure through management action and training that all staff understand Information Governance. Undertake regular reviews and audits of how information is recorded, held and used. Audits will be used to identify good practice and opportunities for improvement. Ensure procedures are reviewed to monitor their effectiveness so that improvements or deterioration in information handling can be recognised and addressed.
