This policy paper on Information Sharing, co-authored by 2020health Associate Kathy Mason, Mark Davies of MedeAnalytics and John Parry of TPP, coordinated by Natalie Batemen of techUK, the voice of the UK tech industry, has set out five guiding principles for achieving safe and effective information sharing, for direct and indirect use, in health and social care. Aimed at solving the challenge of improving data sharing across the sector while protecting confidentiality and adhering to data protection regulation, the principles have been published to directly inform a series of national developments including Dame Fiona Caldicott’s Review into data security standards and the wording of a new consent model, Government’s Data Steering Group and the Health and Social Care Information Centre’s Data Services Platform.
