A systematic approach to evaluating an organization’s IG stance requires appropriate tools to facilitate the process. IGHealthRate™, facilitates evaluation and road map development for achieving progress on the IG journey. Utilizing an identified set of organizational competencies and associated key performance indicators or markers, IGHealthRate™ can be used by your organization to examine current capabilities, identify gaps, and track progress with improvement plans. 

IGHealthRate™ is the healthcare industry standard tool for measuring information governance maturity aligned with AHIMA’s Information Governance Adoption Model (IGAM)™. IGHealthRate™ assesses and scores your organization using ten IG organizational competencies. Each competency includes several key markers that identify critical requirements that must be met to achieve IGAM Level 5™ maturity in information governance. 

IGHealthRate™ permits an organization to focus on specific areas of IG opportunities, specific competencies, a particular part of the organization, or even a specific process or procedure that require improvement. IGHealthRate™ creates a pathway of progressive performance criteria to guide an organization toward achievement of IGAM Level 5™ maturity. This highly iterative and tactically engaging framework allows an organization to assess and evaluate how information is utilized, maintained, and protected.
