Helping home care providers get ahead of changing CQC regulations
A new guide from homecare software provider Unique IQ aims to help homecare providers navigate the use of care management software in line with the CQC’s new regulatory approach.
‘Outstanding home care’ is a revised edition of Unique IQ’s most popular eBook and provides updated guidelines about how homecare software can be leveraged to evidence Outstanding care delivery.
Readers will learn about the CQC’s new regulatory approach, which began piloting with domiciliary care organisations in August 2022, as well as an overview of the CQC’s five key questions.
New for 2022, the guide also explores the CQC’s new quality statements, which replace the existing key lines of enquiry (KLOEs) prompts and includes a comprehensive breakdown of how technology could be used to evidence care quality.
Popular segments from previous iterations of the guide also return, such as extracts from real CQC reports for Outstanding home care providers that demonstrate technology’s impact on the delivery of care.
David Lynes, Founder & CEO of Unique IQ said: “It’s all change in care tech since our last edition of ‘Outstanding home care’.
“The UK government is now pushing for 80% of social care providers to have digital records by March 2024.
“£25 million has been made available to Integrated Care Systems to support the adoption of technologies that can transform care, alongside a new purchasing framework for digital care records systems.
“We hope that this third edition of ‘Outstanding home care’ will help care providers get a step ahead of the upcoming changes to CQC regulation and help them put the processes in place to ensure they continue to evidence the Outstanding care they provide.”
