Why Technology Is A Care Manager’s Best Friend


It’s a recurring worry born out of the responsibility of running a care home. As a care manager, how do you ensure that policies and procedures are up-to-date and are being followed by your staff on the ground? Do you take on the responsibility of compliance yourself?
Perhaps a better question is how long would it take you to develop, customise and update the policies and procedures in your care home?

Well, experts at Quality Compliance Systems (QCS), one of the UK’s largest content management providers, spend over 15,000 hours each year producing 8,500 pages of content for its clients.
Over 4,000 care homes and agencies providing domiciliary care use QCS’s leading-edge compliance management systems, which enables managers to always relay the right policy to the right person at the right time.

In the care sector too, where policies and procedures can sometimes change daily, it’s essential that carers have access to up-to-the-second guidance. Thanks to QCS, which notifies care managers the second a policy is updated, front line staff never have to worry about being caught behind the regulatory curve.

QCS has also invested many thousands of hours producing carefully curated content, which is jargon-free and can be accessed in hundreds of different languages.

Presentation of content is another key differentiator. To this end, QCS has spent thousands of hours linking related policy areas together. This means that care managers and their staff don’t have to carry out separate searches, which can be very time consuming.

But QCS isn’t just there to help you stay on top of compliance, it also provides care managers with access to a suite of innovative learning aids spread over a range of different medias. From blogs, to webinars, to a video-based help centre, QCS training tools are as varied as they are comprehensive. But most important of all, they ensure that you and your team are able to provide outstanding care which meets CQC standards.
