CCIO network launches 12-point plan – eHealth Insider – 20 January 2014

“The CCIO Leaders Network has released a Vision and 12-point plan for chief clinical information officers, to improve the quality of clinical information across the NHS.

The plan calls for the appointment of a senior responsible clinician for information in a wide range of organisations, and argues that this is a vital step for establishing a robust ‘post-Francis’ regulatory regime.

Robert Francis QC’s second report on the scandal at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, released last year, called for more transparency in the health service and the government response has made ‘fiddling’ health data a crime

The CCIO Leaders Network plan sets out the steps that the Secretary of State for Health, NHS England, the Care Quality Commission, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and others need to take to avoid clinical data problems.

It says the CQC should include information quality measures in its inspection criteria and urges NICE to produce a cross-cutting quality standard on clinical information and establish core standards and metrics for the collection and use of information.”
