Caretrack is accredited on the G-Cloud 10 framework: meeting the highest standards of data security and control

We are delighted to announce Caretrack database has been awarded a place on the G-Cloud 10 framework.

This means Caretrack has been through a very rigorous evaluation process and is now on the Government Digital Marketplace, a hub of trusted and accredited ICT suppliers.

Caretrack was developed by CHS Healthcare as a comprehensive platform for the management of people with continuing healthcare funding and other funder groups (complex care, funded nursing care).

The G-Cloud evaluation process provides the public sector with the assurance that only companies with the highest levels of data security, compliance and control are on the framework.

Dr Richard Newland, chief executive of CHS Healthcare, said: “From the earliest stage of Caretrack’s development, we focused very clearly on data security.

“The principle was to build a web-based platform, so staff working in multiple locations could conveniently access and use the system. Equally, storing and managing a large volume of patient information, we recognised the need to maintain the highest standards of security.

“We have continuously invested in the functionality and quality of Caretrack, which was originally launched in 2002.

“The process of being accredited on G-Cloud 10 was extremely comprehensive and robust: a high bar is set and rightly so, because it gives CCGs complete assurance in the quality and security of a product for storing and managing their patient information.”

G-Cloud 10 is the most recent version of the Government’s cloud-based assurance framework, which was first introduced in 2012 to evaluate the quality of ICT suppliers to the public sector. It is a partnership between the Government Digital Service and the Crown Commercial Service.

Caretrack is accredited in the software category.
