CQC have launched a new resource looking at how providers have used new technologies to try and meet the needs of people using their services and improve the quality of care. Dr Malte Gerhold, Director of Strategy and Intelligence at CQC, has said that providers, innovators and regulators need to work together to get the best out of innovation.
The aim of the resource is to start a constructive discussion around how services are doing things differently and what that means for people and regulation.
Dr Gerhold said: “As regulator, the quality of care and safety of people who receive it is paramount for us. But that does not mean that regulation has to be a barrier to innovation. Quite the opposite. We want to see the great potential of new technologies in improving the quality of care and safety become reality – and are determined to help make it possible.”
