Supporting the Care Provider Market to use Technology Safely


Digitisation of social care is a key policy aim and has been shown to improve the quality and efficiency of care. Nationally, money is being invested to drive digitisation across the adult social care sector to improve the quality, safety and personalisation of care.

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) is an online self-assessment tool to help adult social care providers in England to store and share information safely. It shows care services what they need to do to keep people’s information safe, and to protect their business from the risk of a data breach or a cyber attack. It covers both paper and digital records.

Local authority and NHS commissioners require the services that they commission to keep data safe and commissioners play a key role in supporting local providers to safely use digital technology.

This webinar will explore how commissioners can support market stability and sustainability by helping care providers to safely go digital and how they can strengthen care providers’ data protection by through their role as commissioners.

Webinar format

We will be joined by colleagues from the Better Security, Better Care programme and by Matilda Moss, Head of Integrated Commissioning at Buckinghamshire Council, who are supporting the use of the DSPT.

The workshop will be delivered online in Microsoft Team and will feature a blend of presentations and smaller group discussions to enable participation by all delegates.
