Information Governance in Health and Social Care Conference by Capita Conferences


Published by Naomi Wood for Capita Conferences in Health and also in Local Government

Friday 30th May 2014 – Central London


In keeping with the Care Data project recommencing in October and the aim of moving the NHS into the digital realm with the aims of a paperless NHS by 2018, our conference Information Governance in Health and Social Care cannot come at a better time. Over the next three years £1billion will be invested in digital health technology, thus, integration between agencies has never been more imperative.

In February, Dame Fiona Caldicott spoke of ‘a loss of expertise in the system’. She highlighted concerns that with the introduction of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 and Caldicott2, a lack of clarity as to the sharing of data has developed. Now more than ever, your information governance strategy is essential to the effective provision of services in your area. Striking the right balance between the dual considerations of patient safety and confidentiality is a key issue; book now to ensure that you are prepared for the challenge of driving further improvements to care services in your area, whilst protecting your service-users.
