How to use this playbook

Data governance sets the policies, processes and frameworks for accessing, using and sharing data so that value can be created in the form of better decisions, insights, products or services.

Given the aim is to access, use and share data, this playbook is made up for four main sections to guide users to achieve these aims:

  1. Accessing data - provides an overview of the role of data governance in increasing access to data within health data ecosystems. It offers practical guidance on how to implement a data governance framework and enlists the support of actors to build and demonstrate trust in access to health data.

  2. Using data - provides guidance on how to ensure data is usable, including real life case studies that illustrate how good data governance practices can support data interoperability across systems, countries and borders.

  3. Sharing data - provides guidance on considering the legal and social norms related to sharing data across different jurisdictions. It also includes practical guidance to support decisions on how to share daa, how to avoid harmful impacts to personal data and the types of agreements and licences available to share data.

  4. Communicating the value of data governance - includes materials to aid communication with actors including a slide deck to support anyone who needs to convey key concepts.

The first three sections are distinct but related. It is possible to jump directly to the relevant section, or work through the playbook in chronological order. The master slide deck, in the last section, can be used in conjunction or as an independent data governance communication resource.
