The Department of Health is holding a series of webinars to share information about the aged care reforms announced in the 2021-22 Budget and in response to the Aged Care Royal Commission.
These webinars are an opportunity for anyone who uses or needs aged care, who works in aged care or who has an interest in improving aged care in Australia to learn more about the reforms.
Webinars will include presentations from the Hon Greg Hunt MP, Minister for Health and Aged Care, and Senator the Hon Richard Colbeck, Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Services, as well as presentations and panel discussions by senior officials from the Department of Health.
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and the aged care reforms
Our ICT webinar provides information to aged care service providers about the future information technology implications of the aged care reforms.
Information and communication technologies (ICT) enable the delivery of better connected care and operational efficiency for providers. We need to bring together Government and sector ICT systems to put senior Australians at the centre of care. A staged approach and roadmap for how we get there will be critical.
Together we need to design solutions that are fit for purpose so that providers can efficiently keep up with their reporting obligations and spend their time looking after the older Australians in their care.
Providers will have a responsibility to put contemporary ICT systems in place to be able to transact with Government. However, as we make these changes, the Government is committed to working with providers to support changes to ICT systems
With this mind we are engaging early with aged care providers and software vendors as we deliver on the aged care reforms. This will help to ensure the sector can prepare their IT systems in readiness for the policy changes ahead. It will also support our goals for improving quality of care and moving to real-time reporting of data.
