At its most basic level, Information Governance is simply a framework within
which the management of information can take place with due regard to
legislation, ethical standards, technological standards and required codes
of practice.

The term Information Governance, whilst adopted predominantly by the NHS and
Government might be different in content depending on the nature on the
information to be governed.

fingerprinting: Warning: likely to r aise blood pressure

According to the Birmingham Women's Health Care NHS Trust's Information 
Governance webpages

http://www.bwhct.nhs.uk/info-gov-home/info-gov-horus.htm

Information Governance covers the following:

Caldicott
Confidentiality Code of Practice
Data Protection
HORUS
Environmental Information Regulations
Freedom of Information
Information Governance Toolkit
Information Security
Records Management
Links

Very similar to the Caldicott and Data Protection (which it says coexist) is

HORUS.

"Held securely and confidentially
Obtained fairly and efficiently
Recorded accurately and reliably
Used effectively and ethically
Shared appropriately and lawfully"

According to the DH webpage on Information Governance in Social Care

http://www.dh.gov.uk/PolicyAndGuidance/InformationPolicy/InformationForSocia
lCare/CaldicottArticle/fs/en?CONTENT_ID=4075306&chk=dvqjYH

Information Governance is "wider than just Caldicott principles".

"What is Information Governance?

Information governance currently covers the following:

Data Protection Act 1998
Freedom of Information Act 2000
The Confidentiality Code of Practice
Information Security Management - BS7799
Records Management

It is wider than just Caldicott principles, and addresses five broad aspects

of Information processing - how information is Held, Obtained, Recorded, 
Used and Shared (). Whenever the delivery of policy involves any form of 
information processing, then the information processing will, at least in 
part, determine the outcome.

Information Governance has four fundamental aims:-

To support the provision of high quality care by promoting the effective and

appropriate use of information.
 To encourage responsible staff to work closely together, preventing 
duplication of effort and enabling more efficient use of resources.
 To develop support arrangements and provide staff with appropriate tools 
and support to enable them to discharge their responsibilities to 
consistently high standards.
 To enable organisations to understand their own performance and manage 
improvement in a systematic and effective way."

The NHS now works by the Caldicott Principles (named after Dame Fiona
Caldicott, whose commission reported on info sharing in the NHS).

All NHS organsiations have a Caldicott Guardian - usually a board member
with a clinical background - and all transfers of patient data (other than
for the direct care of that patient) must be formally approved by this
guardian.

The Caldicott Principles are:

1. Justifiable purpose
2. Only use patient identifiable info if absolutely necessary
3. Use minimum necessary patient identifiable info
4. Access on a strict need to know basis
5. Everyone handling patient identifiable info must be aware of their
responsibilities
6. Every use of patient identifiable info must be lawful
