Information governance (IG) programs require cross-functional collaboration; however, IG teams or steering committees from each individual healthcare organization will have a slightly different makeup depending on program focus and objectives, organizational IG maturity, staffing, budget resources, competitive posture, and other factors. There are several IG models and frameworks that can help to inform the selection and development of an IG steering committee. Strong executive sponsorship is a key IG Best Practice. Program failure is a great risk without an active and engaged executive sponsor. There may be a clear executive sponsor at some point early on but when that person realizes they will be held accountable for the performance of groups outside their direct control, they might look for cover and find a way to postpone, de-prioritize, or kill the IG program. A Chief IG Officer can act in a coordinating function, but lacking authority, their efforts will likely be met with resistance.
