Care service providers store sensitive personal information in the form of client records which means that due to the legislation in the UK data protection act 1998, a data breach can result in a hefty fine from the Information commissioner’s office. A monetary penalty notice from the ICO for a data breach can be up to £500,000.00, so data security is something that Care Service organisations need to take extremely seriously.
The need for Care providers to be able to maintain current policies and procedures which staff access and use presents many challenges including ensuring that staff are accessing the correct versions of policies and procedures, managing the review process and document approval.

Care Service providers need to manage their policies and procedures and ensure their staff have access the latest versions of documents. Connexion can help you to implement a solution to ensure that documents are correctly versioned, easily accessible and the process of managing them streamlined.
