If you’ve missed a previous email, you can read them here – and as always, if you haven’t already – remember to book in for our webinar.



The Royal Commission highly recommends all Aged Care Facilities transition to digitised management systems. ‘This will result in a safer, more efficient and comprehensive transfer of critical information’. (The Royal Commission, 2021, p. 118) 

This universal adoption of a digital management system will show a reduction of errors leading to less time and money being wasted on managing and handling documentation.


As the Royal Commission addresses the insufficient and insecure funding for aged care, they recognise the limitations of increasing expenses overtime is a priority. (The Royal Commision, 2021, p. 74)

The projected Australian Government funding will increase 4% every year over the next decade after correcting for inflation, making aged care spending growing significantly faster than the rate of all Australian Government spending. 

With the Royal Commission’s recommendation to digitise their management systems, these changes will allow for the allocation of funding to other areas of your facility.


Commissioner Briggs considers the new aged care system should be invested through technology that addresses three key areas: 

  1. A system designed to enable better services including care management, case monitoring and report systems.
  2. A system that provides support care, assistance in managing safety and contributes to their quality of life; and
  3. A system that allows for seamless reporting and data sharing.
