The Informatics team has been working to introduce a consistent approach to Information Governance (IG) for Oxford AHSN projects. Following extensive consultation and engagement with IG heads and Caldicott Guardians, a collaborative document was produced.
The IG Framework includes guidance for programmes and sets clear standards for the Oxford AHSN’s approach to data-sharing for direct care, service evaluation and research purposes, reflecting the collaborative work of its partners.
The process is shown below. Eleven NHS Trusts have signed the framework agreement which allows consistent approach to data sharing across the region.
An Information Governance framework Steering Group has been set up to review the Information Governance framework documents and sign off any changes made. The group will meet 2/3 times a year.
