What is Adult Social Care Records Digital Transformation Fund?

The Digitising Social Care Team in the NHS Transformation Directorate are making a total of £25 million available to Integrated Adult Social Care Systems (ICSs) in 2022/23 to support CQC registered adult social care providers to adopt technologies that can transform care.

The fund will support the adult social care sector to:

  • Adopt digital social care records (DSCR), also known as digital care plans, to ensure care teams have the most accurate, timely information at their fingertips to provide outstanding care;
  • Roll-out sensor-based falls prevention and detection technologies to support those at risk of falls, reducing the frequency and severity of falls-related injuries and preventing hospital admissions; and
  • Test other care technologies based on local needs to further develop our understanding of what works.

Access ICS Funding for Digital Social Care

Your ICS may cover at least 50% of the first-year costs of going digital and you can use that for the implementation, licensing and training. However, it's important to note that specific funding amounts and eligibility criteria may vary for each ICS.
