eMBED’s IG team integrates the best elements of traditional IG expertise, such as data protection, Caldicott and confidentiality with a focus on customer relationship management to ensure successful delivery of the service.

eMBED can reduce the risk of legal non-compliance,  implement national guidance and ensure that all data is handled securely.

The IG team is customer facing and the main role is to support CCGs, Primary Care  and other clients in ensuring that they are compliant with the Information Governance Toolkit, Caldicott Guidelines and other legislation such as Data Protection Act, Common Law Duty of Confidentiality and Human Rights Act.

eMBED’s IG service is seen as an integral part of the organisations we support and offers support with incidents, projects and day-to-day issues with regard to confidentiality.  As we work across a number of organisations and have a pool of shared knowledge, our customers can benefit from a synergistic expert approach to information governance.
