In December 2021 Digital Social Care announced there would be £150m of funding to drive digitisation across adult social care. Digital Social Care has announced they are making a total of £25 million available for Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) in 2022/23. This funding will allow adult social care providers to adopt digital technologies than can transform care.

The funding, announced in June, as part of the Plan for Digital Health and Care will enable the scaling of digital social care technology across England. ICS teams are working with local authorities and care providers in their area to develop plans to:

  1. Increase uptake of digital social care records (DSCR), also known as digital care plans, to ensure data is captured at the point of care and can be shared between care settings
  2. Roll-out sensor based falls prevention and detection technologies for those most at risk of falls, to reduce the frequency and severity of falls-related injuries resulting in hospital admissions;
  3. Test other care technologies based on local need to further develop understanding of what works.

 

What is the Digitising Social Care Records Programme?

The Digitising Social Care Records Programme at the NHS Transformative Directorate launched an Assured Supplier Lists to support adult social care providers in England.  The assured supplier list enables quicker, easier and more informed purchasing processes for social care providers and other organisations. It is managed by the NHS Transformation Directorate, who provide expert advice and guidance to social care providers. The assured supplier list was commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care.

In the coming weeks more information will be available on the Digital Social Care website to find out how you can access funding.
