Implementing an Information Governance framework is not simply a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘need to have’ strategy. By implementing a framework for Information Governance, organizations can unlock the value in their business and clinical information, so the information can be better leveraged for strategic initiatives like revenue cycle management, patient engagement, and population health.
Yet, standing up a governance program can be challenging in the absence of some real-world experience. IG isn’t a ready-made program, it is a thoughtfully executed series of organizational and operations improvement initiatives. Success with IG requires identifying areas of need and opportunity, introducing redesigned practices and policies, and making a commitment to continual improvement.
This important topic is the focus of series of white papers that provide a roadmap for healthcare professionals to enable governance within their health systems.
