Event description
The next meeting of the ACIITC National Home Care Group and CIO Forum.

About this Event

The next meeting of the Aged Care Industry Information Technology Council (ACIITC) National Home Care Group and CIO Forum will be held on Friday 1 November 2019.

The meeting will provide an overview of ACIITC Royal Commission submission, launch an evidence-based report for the sector to consider and provide future technology and innovation direction for the industry.

Background to the meeting

In 2016, ACIITC commissioned Australia’s first Technology Roadmap for Aged Care which was published the following year. The Roadmap was informed by consultation with the Aged and Community Care sector and with organisations providing technology to the sector, as well as by a review of the literature. Given the speed of technological change, ACIITC has commissioned an updated review. This 2019 evidence-based report is based on a search of major research databases and of the grey literature, focusing on the period 2016 – 2019, updating the first review that identified research studies published 2011-2016.

Since the 2018 announcement of The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, ACIITC have held a series of consultations with the CIO Forum Committee and National Home Care Committee to form a submission (submitted August 2019) focusing on the role innovation and technology can play in improving the quality and safety of Aged Care in Australia.

ACIITC vision is for technology and innovation to be embedded features of aged care operations and services, rather than an after-thought. Aged Care organisations need to provide leadership on fit-for-purpose technology and innovation that supports quality care, greater consumer participation and direction of their care and support, safety and more effective and efficient service delivery.

This meeting will provide an update to the members of the two groups and interested parties of the current focus and direction of ACIITC.
