Not-For-Profit Governance: Coming in 2022
CPIN is currently under the governance of the research and academic institutions we work with, however we’re excited to announce that we’ll be moving to a not-for-profit corporate governance model in 2022. To provide advice and guide future developments for CPIN, the governance structure will comprise an advisory group and two working groups who will work together to realize CPIN’s vision.
CPIN’s day-to-day work is managed by a core project team.
Patient Engagement and Outreach
Core to CPIN’s work is understanding the patient experience in accessing and using the services of their healthcare provider. The purpose of the patient engagement and outreach group is to ensure that the patient voice is heard during the development, implementation and evaluation of CPIN projects.
Data Oversight and Analysis
The purpose of this group is to develop and review the data governance policy. It also reviews and approves the development of quantified measures of data quality, and analyses abstracted data.
