QCS and Autumna announce infection control partnership

Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) and Autumna have today announced their partnership, which will make it easier for busy care services to provide the most recent infection control information.

At the heart of the partnership is the S.A.F.E. initiative (Symptom Assessment For Everyone) and the S.A.F.E. badge, which helps care providers to demonstrate that their infection, prevention and control procedures (IPC) go beyond current government guidelines.

Self-funding families can benefit from the knowledge, experience and extensive reach of both organisations, allowing them to make better informed choices when choosing care homes for their loved ones.

QCS has already created and deployed a visitor contact tracing tool to over 300 care homes, which Autumna has integrated into the S.A.F.E initiative. As part of the partnership agreement, QCS will accelerate the development of leading-edge technology applications, and best practice content, which are both central to the S.A.F.E. framework.

Debbie Harris, Autumna’s managing director, added: “We are really excited about this joint-venture. Giving self-funding families the assurance that infection control procedures are paramount in a home’s thinking is so important.

“Not only will this partnership provide them with much greater choice, it will shine a positive light on the outstanding compliance performance and world-class skillset of staff around infection control in thousands of care homes throughout the UK. That can only be a good thing for families and their elderly relatives.”
