HIQA open public consultation on draft information management standards for national health and social care data collections

These standards which focus on the information governance practices and the management of national health and social care data collections in Ireland, will apply to all health and social care data collections that are established and maintained on a national basis, such as the National Cancer Registry Ireland (NCRI) and the National Physical and Sensory Disability Database (NPSDD), managed by the Health Research Board.  Developing standards for national health and social care data collections will, in the long-term, provide key benefits to health and social care service users, health and social care professionals, organisations and policy makers.  The standards encourage improved efficiency and increased usability and usefulness of data.  They support improved access to data, reduced duplication and support the drive for higher quality data throughout national health and social care data collections.
