The term “information governance” is well understood in corporate organizations, and in the healthcare environment it is being used with greater frequency than in the past. This is due in large part to health informatics and the use of technology to transmit, store, share, and manipulate data from health records. Data is an organizational asset to be managed and valued.
Policies, controls, procedures and technologies all need to be in alignment in order for an organization to utilize the full value of this asset—information—which is now found everywhere within the organization. The challenges to growing a culture of information governance in healthcare organizations today are significant, but these challenges are still being tackled by corporate America, as you will read in the following article, located in the CSU Library:Information Governance’s Big Payback.
