As a care provider, it is essential to maintain accurate and up-to-date records that meet the standards set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC may conduct periodic inspections to assess the quality of care being provided and part of this process starts with a request for a series of documents from care providers. This may include staff and client records, safeguarding records, accident and incident logs, medicines administration records, complaints, policies, governance information, and more.
Retrieving all this information can be a challenging and time-consuming task, especially if the records are paper-based or stored across multiple systems. This can cause stress and pressure for care providers, especially when there is a tight deadline for submission.
In this blog, we will discuss how an electronic document retrieval system, can help simplify the process and provide a secure, organised, and efficient solution.
The process of retrieving required documents can be a significant challenge for care providers, particularly if the information is stored in paper-based records or across multiple systems. This can result in a time-consuming and stressful process that puts pressure on staff and resources.
Manually searching for and compiling the required documents can be a lengthy process, and there is always the risk of important information being missed or lost. This process can be even more complicated if the information is stored in different formats, such as paper-based records, spreadsheets, or databases.
An electronic document retrieval system, such as CareSuccess, provides a simplified and efficient solution for retrieving the required documents for CQC inspections. With its user-friendly interface, care providers can quickly and easily access and compile the necessary information, reducing the time and effort required for document retrieval.
CareSuccess provides a secure and organized platform for storing records, ensuring that the information is easily accessible and up-to-date. This reduces the risk of important information being missed or lost and provides care providers with peace of mind knowing that their records are in order.
One of the key features of the CareSuccess system is the ability to auto-store and shelve documents by the date they were uploaded and amended whilst administrators can additionally record the historical date that the original document was created. This allows care providers to quickly retrieve up-to-date information and ensures that all records are easily accessible whilst also being able to evidence amended care plans or risk assessments. You can also download multiple files for a client.
If the CQC requests the latest risk assessments and they are out of date, the CareSuccess system offers a solution for electronic/digital fillable forms. Care providers can quickly and remotely complete and store the forms in the client record, making it easy to retrieve when needed.
The CareSuccess system also includes the latest electronic signature pads, eliminating the need for manual signature processes. This saves time and effort and ensures that all information is stored electronically and easily accessible.
The CareSuccess system provides care providers with a simplified, efficient, and secure solution for retrieving the documents required for both PIRs and CQC inspections.
By reducing the stress, pressure, and time required for document retrieval, care providers can focus on delivering high-quality care to their clients.
With features such as auto-storing and shelving documents by date created, electronic fillable forms, and signature pads, CareSuccess is a comprehensive solution for the care sector as it is integrated within a single platform that includes care monitoring, rostering, eMAR, and much more.
