“Good quality records underpin safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care. They communicate the right information clearly, to the right people, when they need it. They are an essential part of achieving good outcomes for people”.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) published an interim guidance last month on what good digital records look like and how they can be achieved. This was developed in response to requests from providers and the content was built on principles developed during a joint workshop. The guidance also explains what they look for on inspection and how they will support you to use digital record systems.
