Digital record systems: achieving good outcomes for people using adult social care services

Page last updated: 4 March 2024


Assessing and inspecting

As with all aspects of care, we will assess records against our new single assessment framework. 

We consider digital record systems under our well-led key question, specifically under the Quality Statement for Governance, management and sustainability

In particular, we expect providers to demonstrate compliance with the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) or equivalent. This should be completed annually. 

We do not assess the standard or technical functioning, or capabilities of the digital record systems themselves.
