The NHS Transformation Directorate is giving £25 million in funding to ICSs throughout 2022/2023 to support CQC registered adult social care providers in adopting technology to transform care.
The fund will support adult social care providers to adopt a Digital Social Care Record (Digital care planning system), ensuring that care providers can access accurate information instantly, allowing them to provide better care.
The funding will also support the adoption of other care technologies based on local needs.
In addition, the funding provided will typically cover at least 50% of your first-year costs for licensing and training.
Person Centred Software (PCS) have helped many care providers apply for their funding, please get in touch, and we will help you connect with your ICS and help you complete the necessary funding documents.
PCS is also working in partnership with the ICSs to host a number of virtual and in-person events across England. Each month we release which events we will be attending, so if an event is in your area, we would love to meet you!
Our guide aims to provide care providers with information about the Digitising Social Care Records Programme, what to consider when going digital, and the steps involved.
