In March, Jonathan Papworth, director of Person Centred Software, led an event with Vic Rayner and the NCF to share best practice globally. Australian SAGE tour delegates were joined by UK care home owners and managers and we discussed how the landscape of care technology will change in the next few years and the policy drivers for adoption in both countries.
From April, Australia’s inspectorate will move to measuring quality of care, like the CQC already does in the UK. Providers from both countries saw that technology was necessary to gather the data needed to measure quality of care, which can be quite intangible. As someone said, “It can be hard to record everything on paper, let alone analyse it!”
