About this guide:
The Digitising Social Care Records Programme aims for all CQC-registered adult social care providers to have access to a Digital Social Care Record that can interoperate with a local Shared Care Record – these records will play an essential role in joining up care across social care and the NHS, with real-time information being shared with authorised individuals across the health and care sector.
The UK health and social care secretary Sajid Javid has set out a government target to have 80% of all registered care providers operating digital care record systems by 2024.
The digital transformation will free up time spent by care workers and managers on administrative tasks, whilst equipping them with the information they need to deliver care.
This guide has been created to help care providers understand the programme and aims to answer all questions around the digitising social care records programme, what to consider when going digital and how to take the steps to go digital.
