Care providers are using more technology than ever before. Data about people using care services, staff, and partner organisations are being routinely stored and frequently shared. But how can commissioners and quality assurance leads check that social care providers are following good data protection and cyber security practice?
In truth, it’s complex. But checking that a care provider uses the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) – and that it is up to date – is a good place to start.
The DSPT is an online, self-assessment tool for adult social care providers, developed and supported by the NHS in partnership with local authority and social care leaders. The Toolkit leads care providers through a series of questions based around the same data security standards used by NHS bodies, and enables them to publish they level they reach against those standards. Care providers should complete it at least once a year – and the deadline for 2021/22 is 30 June 2022.
