Caldicott2 Information Governance review launched at Electronic Patient Records Conference

"The Health Secretary today responded to the Caldicott Review, outlining how technology can have a transformational effect on healthcare.

Responding to the Caldicott Review on information governance in health and social care, the Health Secretary outlined that information and technology will only have a transformational effect on healthcare if this agenda respects the relationship of trust between a medical professional and their patient.
 
Speaking at the Electronic Patient Records Conference, Jeremy Hunt said that while effective sharing of patient information has enormous potential to improve patient care, services and treatments, this can only be done effectively if patients are given a say over how their personal information is used."
