Harnessing Information and Communications Technology to create sustainable aged care services.
The Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA) has contracted the Aged Care Industry Information Technology Council (ACIITC) to deliver a Report to investigate Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF) clinical use of clinical software. Complete the National Forum by Friday 23 April 2021.
The Aged Care Industry Information Technology Council will be holding regular International Innovation and Technology Across Care (ITAC) Forums from April 2021.
This International Forum will speak to Recommendation 68 “every approved provider of aged care uses a digital care management system meeting a standard set by the Australian Digital Health Agency” as recommended by the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. Specifically, the Royal Commission outlines that the integration of My Health Record would be the initial accreditation criteria.
Come to the first ITAC International Forum to hear from international expert Professor Greg Alexander on the USA’s experience in integrated data collection along with national leading projects being delivered by the Australian Digital Health Agency in conjunction with the ACIITC.
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.
