We wish to advise you that the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) is running a public consultation on its Draft National Standards for Information Management in Health and Social Care. The public consultation will run for eight weeks, and will close at 5pm on Monday, 19 December 2022.
The aim of the Draft National Standards for Information Management in Health and Social Care is to provide a roadmap to improve the quality of national health and social care information, which will ultimately contribute to the delivery of safe and reliable care. They will apply to all services and organisations that collect, use or share health and social care information within HIQA’s legislative remit. However, as a whole-system approach is required to drive significant improvements in the quality of information nationally, all health and social care services and organisations that collect, use and share health information should aim to adhere to these standards to improve the quality and use of information across the entire system.
You can find the draft standards and share your feedback here. You can submit a response to the draft standards either as an individual or on behalf of your organisation. We would like a wide-ranging response to the consultation to ensure the standards meet the needs of all stakeholders. Therefore, please share the call for feedback with relevant contacts within your networks.
If you have any questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
