Record keeping in health and social care and it’s importance

Improve standards and continuity of care

What is record-keeping?

Record keeping in health and social care plays a significant role, and to provide residents with the best possible care, keeping up-to-date and accurate records is essential. 

Maintaining digital social care records allows care providers to keep all resident information in one place, helping to ensure they remember all the important details during the resident's treatment and care. 

Good record keeping helps care providers to: 

  • Provide safe, effective, compassionate, and high-quality care
  • Comply with CQC regulations 
  • Meet the needs of every individual 
  • Exchange information seamlessly

Providing carers with an easy-to-access medical record of each resident, along with a list of what's important to them, a summary of their care plan and wishes for their future care, should be available to care teams involved in the resident's treatment or care.
