QCS launches new App
The Care sector is currently experiencing a period of quite dramatic change. The CQC’s new Fundamental Standards represent a significant evolution from the previous framework. But there are other, more subtle changes that are no less significant for the sector. Importantly, there is an emerging view that quality can be driven by technological solutions and effective data management.
In November, Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) launched its new App, with the primary aim of helping its customers continuously improve quality of care, by ensuring policies, procedures and updates are instantly available on all technology platforms. The App also supports regulatory evidence of innovative systems, assists with corporate social responsibility goals, as well as supporting ISO14001 – Environmental Management Systems Standard.
QCS is the leading compliance management system for the Care sector enjoyed by over 33,000 Care, Dental and Medical professionals. With several thousand downloads since launch, the App is delivering a complete set of policies and toolkits directly to users’ fingertips, 24/7.
Mat Whittingham, CEO of QCS, explains, “QCS is committed to using great technology to enhance the provision of care. The App has gone down really well with our customers, delivering all the compliance materials directly to the ‘front line’ 24/7, rather than the traditional approach of printed policies and procedures sitting in large files on an office shelf! And this is just the very start for QCS. We have a comprehensive tech development roadmap that is dedicated to ensuring that QCS customers are first to benefit from these market-leading enhancements.”
