New benchmarking in ASC-WDS to help you with CQC inspections

New benchmarking in ASC-WDS to help you with CQC inspections

Skills for Care has expanded the benchmarks feature in the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASC-WDS), making it more useful for providers using data to inform decision making.  More ‘Pay’ data can help them set pay rates to stay competitive in their local area. Updates to the ‘Recruitment and retention’ tab makes it easier for them to see how they’re doing on staff turnover and vacancies which can help inform recruitment plans.

The Care Quality Commission’s inspection framework says that care providers should look outside of their own organisation to see how they are performing against others. The ASC-WDS benchmarking feature helps with this. Users can select their comparison group to see how their metrics compare to others with new ranking charts and bar graphs to give further insight. The information can even be downloaded to use as evidence.
