In a recent article, the Care Software Providers Association, CASPA, announced that it has reached 56 members, which has helped to ensure it can achieve the original objectives of the association:
- The promotion and continued growth of the use of digital technologies in the social care sector to improve the quality of care delivered;
- Promoting advances in the digital information flow across social care to provide openness and transparency of care being provided;
- Lobbying parties outside social care to improve the digital information flow between social care and others, in particular the NHS;
- Creating standards, such as those for electronic information transfer, where such standards do not currently exist.
With more providers joining the association CASPA has been given the confidence to add a fifth objective of “Creating a framework to assist in providing service continuity for members customers”. The UK based independent, not-for-profit association focused on maximising the use of digital technology to improve the quality of care in social care, and has been instrumental in showcasing electronic transfer of care information between social care and the NHS. CASPA strives to implement legislation and regulatory guidelines within the industry where such standards do not currently exist.
