Who’s on first?

One aspect of information governance is “Who’s in charge?”  Who governs?  And what if two people think they govern?

Medical Device ID Effort Hits Snag,” Wall Street Journal, March 11, 2015 B1.  The FDA tells medical device makers to include a unique device identification number on each device.  The plan was to have this number entered on billing forms so the devices could be monitored for failure more easily.  But Medicare is afraid it will cost too much to change their forms.

Does your organization have one person who makes The Decision, or is there more than one decision maker? Well, tri-partite government seems to have resolved the issue. Or has it?

This is why I prefer a single owner to an Information Governance Steering Committee.
