CQC recognises the role that digital technology is playing in the care sector.

In November, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) introduced a new assessment framework and announced that the provider information return (PIR) will be replaced by an online provider information collection (PIC) in 2018.

This, together with a new Key Line of Enquiry (KLOE) that includes a focus on how technology is used to support timely access to care and treatment, emphasises CQC’s recognition of the role that digital transformation is playing in the sector.
