This white paper, produced by GGI in collaboration with Allocate Software, investigates the benefits that mechanising assurance, and the use of integrated assurance software, can bring to NHS organisations and wider systems.
As the national operating environment grows in complexity, organisations will need to be alive to the challenge of implementing and retaining effective quality and safety assurance processes and ensuring that effective behaviours are underpinning these. This paper explores the value of assurance before going on to explore the benefits of mechanisation through a selection of case studies. It then looks forward to assurance in system working, and how this can be most effectively developed. Co-produced with NHS colleagues, the paper concludes with a set of recommendations for providers, regulators, GGI and Allocate.
