CQC compliance is all about providing evidence, but what constitutes evidence?

Quite simply, it is probably everything you do from day to day in your practice. When the fridge temperature or drug expiry is checked, that is evidence. When a member of staff reads a document, that is evidence. When staff appraisals are completed, that is evidence. Proof that staff HepB vaccinations are up to date is evidence. Now think about all of the other processes that are undertaken almost daily within the practice. Most of them are evidence.

The main areas of evidence for CQC are:

  • Documents, with the relevant evidence behind them (version history, who has read them, review dates)
  • Daily Processes such as monitoring of drugs, fridges, equipment, training, appraisals, CRB checks and many more.
  • Meetings  also often have relevance to CQC outcomes. The evidence is what the meeting was about, who attended, what were the results of the meeting etc.

FPMiS brings all this evidence together in one simple to use and affordable system which automatically gathers evidence for CQC.

FPM documents are pre-populated by CQC outcome . The system tracks every user who has ever opened a document and is able to send review dates to the document owner to remind them. You can even send out a reading task for people to make sure they do read the document and you can demonstrate the version history read. Everyone in the practice will only ever see the latest version of a document so you can be sure everyone works from the latest version of a document.  Importantly, any single document can be tagged to multiple CQC outcomes - you don't need to store the document multiple times.

Every process in the system can also be tagged to multiple CQC outcomes. For example staff training records can be relevant to, outcome 11 and 12, the system will log who has been trained on what, when training is due, any documents that support the training and all this evidence will appear in the appropriate evidence repository. All meetings can also be tagged to multiple outcomes and the relevant documents such as agenda and minutes will appear with them.
