We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ve been accredited by the NHSX as a trusted provider of Digital Social Care Records (DSCR) on their Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS). Log my Care will now feature as a recommended digital care management platform on the Assured Supplier List.
Founded in 2017 by Sam Hussain in response to the growing pressure on the UK care sector, it’s our mission to make person-centred technology accessible to everyone in social care. We’ve worked hard to develop an easy-to-use care management platform that eliminates the need for paper records, saves time and improves the quality of care delivery. To be recognised by the NHSX (now part of the NHS Transformative Directorate) on a list that's designed to promote the uptake of technology in the sector is a great milestone on the path to making our mission a reality.
“We're delighted to be recognised as an NHSX assured supplier for social care. The assessment has put us through our paces and I am very pleased to learn we meet the rigorous security, process and feature standards asked of us."
Sam Hussain | Founder & CEO
What is the DPS?
It’s estimated that about 40% of social care providers still don’t have a digital solution in place to manage their care records. This puts additional strain on providers that are already struggling with the consequences of the staffing crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. Using a care management platform, like Log my Care, can help reduce the burden of bureaucracy and give back valuable time so carers can focus their energy on delivering person-centred care. That’s why the NHSX is pushing for at least 80% of social care providers to adopt digital care records by March 2024.
In order to achieve this goal, the DPS was created to boost confidence and market uptake of technology. The DPS gives care services a list of vetted and assured suppliers offering digital social care records. Each supplier on the list has been thoroughly assessed against a set of requirements and capabilities that reflect the priorities and functionalities carers and care managers need. These include, for example, standards on data and cyber security, person-centred care planning, resilience and sharing data with other systems.
In short, the DPS is intended to help care providers make quicker, easier and more informed purchasing decisions when looking for Digital Social Care Records by providing a list of reliable, future-proof suppliers.
