    ​Good morning! There are so many roles nowadays which can be vital to IG! Team members from roles within privacy, security, revenue cycle, enterprise intelligence, clinical IT and IT applications, legal and compliance (to name a few key team members) are vital to information governance.

    Roles specific to IG may include someone working in IT apps organizing and inventorying the various applications across the enity(s) and maintaining the record retention guidelines all the way to someone reviewing the information flow to all of our various request needs (due to MACRA, MIPS, MU and other agencies).

    There are some amazing IG articles and the tool kit which is wonderful background to become familiar with so that no mater what role a person is in they can initiate or be a champion of change!

    Good luck on your journey and know that sometimes its the persons passion regardless of role which can initiative the most change and movement in an organization!
