Information Governance: The Foundation for Effective eHealth (Accenture)
Holistic framework helps health care practitioners and organizations assess and overcome e-health challenges
Here's a brief summary:
Around the world, health care organizations are making unprecedented investments in e-health systems. While it’s easy to appreciate the potential advantages of such systems—including reduced errors, greater efficiency, lower costs and, ultimately, better care—it isn’t so easy for organizations to develop and execute an effective approach.
In this new paper, Accenture’s Institute for Health and Public Service Value explains critical challenges and proposes a new Information Governance Framework for Health. Drawing on what Accenture has learned through e-health implementations around the world, the framework articulates the five highly interrelated disciplines of information governance:
* Data privacy
* Data confidentiality
* Data security
* Data quality
* Data integrity
