10:30 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: How the Power of Technology Can Revolutionise the Aged Care Sector

In an era where technology and IoT is revolutionising entire industries, it’s time we placed greater emphasis on the sophistication of IT systems in the aged care sector. This panel will explore innovative ways technology can be applied to improve quality of living for Australia’s aging population and support businesses to deliver contemporary services:

  • Using an online simulated training program to upskill and support carers in residential aged care
  • Smart home sensors as daily aids for older Australians living in aged care and retirement communities
  • IoT and wearable devices – from wrist bands to customisable and purpose-built smart watches – to enable accurate real-time monitoring of senior’s wellbeing around the clock
  • Telehealth – improving quality of life for residents and supporting carers in remote areas
  • Financial implications of investing in the latest end-user technology across your service line
