Metacompliance are delighted to welcome a new Healthcare customer, NHS West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust. Healthcare organisations are increasingly turning to automated policy management and user awareness systems to comply with all appropriate legislation and adhere to guidance issued by the various Departments of Health, in order to protect the integrity and privacy of patient data.
Explaining why he chose MetaCompliance, Graham Trainor
Information Governance & Standards Manager, for West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust said;
“MetaCompliance caught my eye as it gives the ability to target different groups with different messages and also seems to take care of the proof of compliance problem by enabling responses and acceptance to be automatically recorded.”
Graham further explained;
“I'm fairly new to Information Governance but was aware of the problems of engaging the right poeple with the right messages. As well as compliance it also seems like a really useful tool for general awareness and I hope to use it for many other areas than Information Governance. Specific problems with data quality compliance or changes to choices on systems can be targeted at the users who are not complying or who use the systems, rather than a blanket approach hitting people who aren't affected.”
Commenting on the addition of West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust to the MetaCompliance customer pool, MetaCompliance Managing Director Robbie O’Brien stated;
“The Healthcare Sector have a huge responsibility to staff and patients to ensure the integrity and privacy are held intact, by automating policy management and user awareness initiatives such as e-Learning, MetaCompliance can guarantee 100% participation from users and gives management the backup required in the event of a data breach to prove they demonstrated their Duty of Care”
Mr O’Brien concluded;
“As the leading provider of policy management and staff training solutions, MetaCompliance® enables organisations to automate and manage the entire process of user awareness and engagement, including key tasks such as policy management, risk assessment and the delivery of existing e-Learning content.
User awareness is the cornerstone of any successful information assurance programme, and is an essential factor in maintaining regulatory compliance. MetaCompliance® enables organizations to deliver automated, repeatable processes that are the key to best practice information assurance and essential to demonstrating compliance to auditors and regulators.”
