The purpose of the research project was to examine the process of developing a data sharing framework between different public sector organizations.
Design / methodology / approach:
A two year case study of a data sharing project between a UK fire and rescue service, local council, NHS primary care trust and a police force was undertaken.
It is important to carefully determine the requirements for data sharing, to establish data sharing agreements, to have secure arrangements for data sharing, and to ensure compliance with data protection legislation.
Research limitations / implications:
Data sharing between public sector organizations can operate effectively if appropriate care is taken when creating data sharing agreements between partner organizations.
Data sharing can assist in reducing duplication of effort between public sector organizations, and can reduce costs and enable more co-ordinated provision of public services.
Data sharing can assist in identifying citizens who might otherwise have been overlooked to relevant organizations. Data sharing can also assist in reducing risks associated with individuals and promote more independent living.
Originality / value:
The detailed analysis of a data sharing case study identified the need for a systematic data sharing framework. Such a framework is proposed and illustrated with practical examples of specification, implementation and evaluation.
Key words: Data sharing framework public sector management data protection legislation
