CQC guidance on using technology in care

The CQC has made ‘encouraging innovation’ one of its strategic priorities, recognising that digitally-enabled care can offer significant benefits to people who use services and those who run and deliver them. We explore what providers can be doing now to improve quality and look ahead to what the future holds for the sector.

It’s a hugely exciting time for embracing the potential of technology, but it’s important to remember the care that’s at the centre of it. People’s quality of life and wellbeing, in some cases people’s lives, is dependent on the technology that we introduce into home care. And as technology providers, we have a responsibility to remember that as we strive to better our tech.
