Homecare is an essential service, allowing people to receive care within their own home.
As the demand for home support services significantly increases year on year, there is now a push for the home support sector to be regulated by the state body HIQA.
The purpose of homecare regulation will be to provide accountability and assurances on the quality of the services and to promote improvements in performance. With regulation and monitoring from HIQA comes new challenges and opportunities for homecare providers in achieving regulatory compliance.
How HCI Can Help
We recognise that it can be daunting having new standards to comply with, in potentially short and uncertain timeframes. In-house resources and knowledge of regulatory environments may be limited – we are here to help reduce the burden of compliance.
HCI works with homecare providers to develop practical Quality and Safety Management Systems to improve care and prepare for regulatory monitoring against the impending National Standards for Homecare and Support Services in Ireland.
With our assistance, you can ensure that your services are delivered safely and that you have an overarching governance framework that meets regulatory compliance and drives continuous improvements.GET IN TOUCH NOW
