Log my Care puts consent at the heart of care

Digital care management platform Log my Care has launched its newest feature: consent management.

Designed with carers, the feature enables care providers to manage their service users’ consent records directly in Log my Care’s platform.

Service users, or their Legal Power of Attorney, will now be able to sign digital consent and lack of capacity forms. Care providers have the option to choose from a list of pre-populated templates to present to their clients for consent, with the option to amend these, as required. All signed consent forms are easily accessible and make evidencing consent for care simple.

Consent has long been an issue in the care sector. The ever-increasing demand for social care has led to reports of neglect and service users feeling unheard and unseen. Log my Care intends to make it easier for care providers to document and manage their consent policies and procedures, helping them to deliver person-centred care and give their clients greater autonomy. 

According to Log my Care, consent management is easy to use and allows care providers to take a more standardised approach to recording consent or lack of capacity. Having evidence of consent easily accessible can help care providers achieve good and outstanding ratings in their inspections – it is, after all, a legal requirement that regulatory bodies check diligently. 

Log my Care CEO and founder Sam Hussain said: “We're working hard to put people into the heart of social care by supporting them to have choice, control and independence. Our mission is to make people-centred technology accessible to everyone in social care - that's why our core product is easy-to-use and free for everyone who needs it.”
