As part of the Better Security, Better Care programme, HCPA has been funded by NHSX to provide FREE support to Care Providers in Hertfordshire and Essex with completion of their DSPT.
The DSPT is an annual online assessment of your Data Protection & Cyber Security practices. As a care provider you need to ensure that you manage personal data securely within GDPR.
This assessment will take you through the necessary aspects of data compliance, mitigate the risk of disruption and financial and reputational repercussions from data breaches and cyber attacks and ensure best practice.
Once you have published the toolkit, you provide confidence to your service users and their families that you have met the required standard and are continuing to review and improve your data management and they can trust you to handle and process their personal data securely and appropriately.
Completion is a requirement to take advantage of key NHS systems and data initiatives, which save time and streamline processes.
- Online Medication Ordering
- Digital Social Care Records (DSCR)/Digital Transformation Fund
- Hospital discharge information
It is also a requirement for delivering NHS contracts and for some local authorities.
