Funasset Achieves Compliance with NHS England Clinical Safety Standards
Funasset demonstrates its software solutions minimise potential harm to patients through rigorous clinical risk management.
The NHS England Clinical Safety Standards, specifically DCB0129 and DCB0160, are designed to eliminate unacceptable clinical risk to patients. These standards are published under section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 20121, making compliance mandatory.
DCB0129 – Clinical Risk Management: its Application in the Manufacture of Health IT Systems, is designed to help manufacturers of health IT software evidence the clinical safety of their products. Any health organisation looking to implement a solution can request, and should be provided with, this documentation.
Achieving compliance with these standards demonstrates Funasset’s dedication to patient safety. It underscores their commitment to minimising potential harm to patients through rigorous clinical risk management.
The process of achieving compliance involves carrying out specific types of risk assessment on the product or health IT solution. These assessments help determine whether the product is safe to use in a live environment with real patients.
Funasset's achievement in becoming compliant not only enhances their reputation but also provides assurance to healthcare organisations considering their products. It is a testament to their commitment to delivering safe and effective health IT solutions.
This accomplishment is particularly significant given the increasing reliance on digital solutions in healthcare. As healthcare organisations continue to digitise their operations, the importance of ensuring the clinical safety of health IT systems cannot be overstated.
Mark Dowson, Managing Director of Funasset states: "Achieving compliance with NHS England Clinical Safety Standards, along with our Cyber Essentials certification, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, and our JOSCAR registration, demonstrates we are an organisation committed to developing high quality solutions that adhere to the strict demands of clients such as the NHS and the defence industry."
