The Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians launched the Aged and Community Care Innovation and Technology Capabilities and Readiness (CARE-IT) Report on 26 November 2020. This important publication adds significantly to the collective understanding of the sector, its current level of digital maturity and the significant opportunities technology and innovation can offer in providing a more sustainable and high quality aged and community care sector.
The Aged Care Industry IT Council (ACIITC) was formed by the two industry Peak bodies Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) and Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) in 2007 with the express intent of providing the industry with a vehicle to consider and debate IT related opportunities and to disseminate the lessons learned from that process to the wider aged care industry.
