The Government has pledged a £4 billion investment to create a paperless NHS, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced in February 2016.Moving all records online and creating a paperless NHS by 2020 will save £4.4 billion, according to Department of Health statistics. Exemplary information governance will be required to manage the vast amount of sensitive online data that this will generate. In the past, the NHS has experienced a number of data breaches, leading to concerns around the safety of patient data. To address this, the Government appointed Dame Fiona Caldicott to lead the Caldicott Review, which recommended improvements to information governance in healthcare that are in the process of being implemented. In addition to this, healthcare providers have begun to use innovative new information governance software to better manage the growing body of data handled by healthcare providers.
