Supplier asserted integrations are interoperability interfaces prepared by a supplier and are not specified or assured by the NHS. We encourage you to undertake your own assessment of these integrations. This solution integrates with:
- Salesforce CRM
- Zohobooks/ Quickbooks

Decaura's typical implementation process involves:
- assigning a dedicated project manager to assist in the implementation process
- starting with a project kick off meeting, to define the scope, understand the organisation readiness, define responsibilities and set target go live dates
- arranging training through a blended learning method, mixing online, group and self-service training (all online training is recorded) – you can arrange further training through the account team
- regular service management meetings to address any business concerns
Browser-based application details
Native mobile or table application
All suppliers on the Assured Solution list are cloud-based.
The Dom Portal uses a public cloud platform hosted across redundant data centres, which means data is stored on resilient storage that is duplicated across different data centres. This means there is minimal or no loss of service if one data centre fails. The hosting provider also has physical measures such as power back-up and temperature control systems and a business continuity plan to ensure business continuity.
You do not need a Health and Social Care Network connection to use this service.
Upcoming developments will be based on customer requests, alignment with future CQC requirements, and ongoing standards compliance.
Dom Portal are also seeking integration and interoperability opportunities.
The Digital Social Care Record roadmap outlines the capabilities and standards that all solutions will need to meet in future.
