Person Centred Software is now compliant with the 14 NHS Digital Social Care Record (DSCR) standards

One of the largest and most compliant, connected social care software providers  



We're thrilled to announce that Person Centred Software is compliant with the 14 NHS Digital Social Care Record (DSCR) standards that came into effect this year.  

Built for carers and loved by carers, our Connected Care Platform, which encompasses all our integrated solutions, supports over 6,000 care providers across all service types every day, helping thousands of residents live their lives their way with independence and dignity and in a place they can truly call home. 

One of our innovative solutions, mCare, a digital social care record system, now complies with the 14 NHS Digital Social Care Record standards, which aim to raise the quality of systems provided to care organisations. 


Andrew Coles, Chief Product Officer at Person Centred Software, says:

''We are delighted to be compliant with all the 14 NHS Digital Social Care Record (DSCR) standards that came into effect this year. As an assured supplier, we fully support the development and implementation of these standards, which aim to drive up the quality of solutions used by care providers and ensure that solutions deliver benefits that will enhance the lives of those living and working in social care.


Our role as a software provider is to ensure that standards are fit for purpose and can be implemented without becoming a burden to users.  Co-design and understanding of our users have been critical to successfully delivering the standards with the highest adoption rates in the sector.  We have connected more than 1000 care homes to the NHS, and circa 90k residents have already completed an 'About Me' profile - this means that the information held about a resident is of the highest quality. Those supporting them understand their social, clinical, and wellbeing needs''.
