Report on the Public Consultation Process on a Draft Health Information Policy Framework
The Department of Health consulted stakeholders on a draft Health Information Policy Framework via a workshop with attendees at the National Health Information Seminar on 4 October 2017 and a six week online public consultation from 4 October to 15 November. The aim of these consultations was to seek views to inform the development of a National Health Information Policy Framework and a programme of work in the areas of health information legislation, information governance, operational arrangements and patient and professional awareness. Over 270 individuals attended the National Health Information Seminar and the online public consultation received 167 responses. This report presents the findings from the analysis of all responses that were submitted to this public consultation process.
