UK Healthcare Revolution
Speakers discussed the need for information sharing and a healthcare revolution that resulted in a more responsive, efficient and accountable NHS. They discussed the risk environment for NHS with a growing number of reported breaches and their severity, as well as, findings from healthcare providers on average access counts for patient records.
The Calidicott Guardian played a vital role in effective information sharing, including making board level individuals responsible for championing information across H&SC, allowing patients to view their own health information online and mandatory breach notification to NHS bodies and patients.
