Data sharing progress enables technology to deliver says new briefing

Determinded efforts by public sector organisations to share sometimes sensitive data are delivering rewards in the form of better outcomes for citizens and improved efficiency and effectiveness for organisations.

Information sharing: legal? effective? sensitive? the latest briefing from Socitm, explains that imagination and innovation, applied within the constraints of the legal framework and a duty of care, can produce valuable results.

The briefing includes case studies from Melton Borough Council, Havering Council and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust - organisations that have found that the needs of governance and the legal framework, which are often inhibitors to sharing, are surmountable.

Benefits include more accurate assessments, leading to more proportionate actions, with improved case management and resource efficiency, including bringing in the voluntary sector. Richer intelligence results in a greater likelihood of prevention.

Information sharing: legal? effective? sensitive? is available free of charge to Socitm Insight subscribers
