Australian Aged Care Innovators, Network and Learn Event - Co-design In Aged Care |Adelaide Event
Australian Aged Care Innovators (AACI)
AACI is a new initiative created by Aged Care Innovators Julie Hogarth-Williams, founder of The SeniorsChannel and Jeannie-Marie Noyce, founder of Brenna.
The purpose of AACI is to bring together people interested in advancing care through innovation. Through a series of Network and Learn Events AACI will unite Aged Care Innovators and Providers.
For innovative products and services to thrive, they need customers. For providers to modernise and advance care, they need to be aware of new developments in products and services, though they often don't have the time to devote to this. Unfortunately, Aged Care Innovators are not well-represented at industry conferences, which limits their opportunities to showcase their solutions.
Our aim is to fill this gap, by bringing innovators and aged care providers together to make it easier for providers to find the best products and services to meet the needs of staff and consumers.

Jeannie-Marie Noyce - CEO, Founder of Brenna
Jeannie-Marie has a diverse corporate law, banking, financial services, analytics, and operations background. This has given her a strong foundation for her current role as an entrepreneur and founder of Brenna. Brenna - a communication app that transforms how family members are informed about their loved ones' health and well-being.
One of her passions is improving the aged care industry, an area that requires more resources, innovation, and empathy. Based on her personal experience with her mother being in aged care for 4.5 years ignited this passion to contribute towards enhancing the experience for all involved parties, including aged care staff, management, family members, and residents.
Jeannie Marie shares her experiences as an Aged Care innovator and will talk about the progression from “I” to “We” to “Us” through Co-design.
Her keynote will explore how co-design can be used to move from an idea through to long-term collaborative partnerships. She will outline the steps in the co-design process of building “Brenna” and the joy of witnessing the empowerment felt by nurses when they discovered the ease of using the Brenna system to send comprehensive updates to families in under a minute. The success of the product is attributed to the extensive co-design process
