The Challenge

NHS England was searching for a technology solution to help them manage the requirements of their Information Governance Toolkit (IGT). This meant the ability to:

    • Identify all information assets.
    • Perform risk assessments and implement mitigating actions.
    • Automate the end to end asset lifecycle, from identification through to decommissioning.

These requirements amongst others needed to be realised across multiple locations, teams and include over 2000 assets.

The Solution

NHS England’s requirements for their IGT meant the development of a bespoke solution which had to be delivered and go live in 8 weeks.   CoreStream was appointed because of its expertise in delivering bespoke solutions and its ability to deliver solutions at speed (standard solutions can go live in as little as two weeks).

The Outcome

NHS England’s new information asset management solution was developed and went live in just 8 weeks.  It now enables NHS England to manage the full lifecycle of information assets from drafting and approving assets, through to decommissioning them once they have reached end of life. The risk level of assets and associated flows are automatically calculated to enable targeted intervention and the CoreStream reporting provides useful management information across the organisation.

Information Asset Manager is managing in excess of 2000 assets and has more than 400 administrative users who access this intuitive built for purpose technology.

Information Asset Manager

The software is user friendly and the ease of use for Administrators also takes the stress out of manoeuvring through a spreadsheet. This software is definitely an asset to all Information Assets Administrators.
