"As integrated patient care develops, improvements must be made to the ease and safety of sharing data between services….Integration is driving more data sharing between health and social care organisations, although a lack of understanding of security issues is causing people to default to risk avoidance and to be unwilling to share…we know that good information underpins good care, and that patient safety can only be assured when information is accessible, accurate and if confidentiality is maintained.” Dame Fiona Caldicott July 2016
"Information is essential for high quality health and social care – to support the running of the health and social care system; to improve the safety and quality of care, including through research; to protect public health; and to support innovation. Data sharing is essential to identifying poor care. It is clear that more effective data sharing could have enabled some of the recent failures to provide proper care to patients to be identified and tackled earlier. It can also be beneficial to join health data up with other types of information, to provide better services to people. The way that information is shared across the health and social care system to support its management is complex and has evolved over time.” National Data Guardian for Health and Care | Review of Data Security, Consent and Opt-Outs July 2016
