New blog from Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care on Technology & Innovation

Kate Terroni, CQC’s Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, has written a blog about innovation and technology in the sector.

In her post Terroni gives her thoughts on the use of technology and innovation in care services and the role which CQC must play in the changing care landscape. She reflects on the benefits of using electronic care plans:

“Speaking with carers I have found that this technology means they can spend more time with the people they support and less time doing paperwork.”

In response to the feedback she has received about how frustrated providers are with how some inspectors use electronic care planning software, she has announced that CQC plan to publish a short piece of guidance for inspectors early next year.

The blog outlines CQC’s position and innovation and shows the work CQC is putting in to not be seen as a barrier to innovation.

“As our social care providers develop new ways to deliver care, we at CQC are very keen that we do not stifle this innovation, as long as things are tried in collaboration with people who receive care and are safe.”
