In the contemporary landscape of healthcare, the management of data has become a critical facet of operations. With the proliferation of electronic health records (EHRs), wearable devices, and various digital health solutions, vast amounts of sensitive patient data are generated daily. However, alongside the potential benefits of this data lies a pressing need for robust governance frameworks to ensure its security, integrity, and sustainability. This paper explores the multifaceted dimensions of healthcare data governance, focusing on strategies to safeguard patient information while fostering its utility for improving healthcare outcomes. It delves into the importance of establishing clear policies, procedures, and standards for data collection, storage, access, and sharing within healthcare organizations. Additionally, it examines the role of technology in enforcing data governance practices, including encryption, access controls, and data anonymization techniques. Furthermore, the paper addresses the regulatory landscape governing healthcare data, emphasizing compliance with laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It underscores the necessity of ongoing compliance monitoring and risk assessment to mitigate potential breaches and ensure adherence to evolving regulatory requirements.
