Headlines - Direct Care • Agreed common terminology would be helpful – CHRE volunteered to lead • Clarity about when the social worker is part of the care team and covered by implied consent • When non-registered professions e.g. HCA are covered by implied consent • A better understanding of what is within the social contract of implied consent • And of the need to make this explicit to patients and service users
Headlines - Commissioning • Need for large quantities of data to create an innovative culture • Commissioning Intelligence Model will involve setting up CSSs and DMICs & access to PID • Desire to make IG an enabler – information is an asset – IG adds value thro data quality and protecting this asset
Headlines - Commissioning • Role of CQC – not an IG regulator – context of quality of care and managing clinical risk only • Consideration of the future of the toolkit & usefulness for commissioners • Lack of clarity about data controller / data processor relationships
