It has been two weeks since the 2023 Aged Care Quality, Safety, and Risk Forum took place in Melbourne over two days. The event was attended by 115+ members of the aged care sector, including providers large and small, peak bodies, government, advocates, consumers, academics, and solution providers.
The focus of the event was on the aged care reforms that are being progressively rolled out under the current government. Whether it was meeting the workforce challenges around minimum care minutes, assuring compliance with the new quality standards, or having clear guidance around the Serious Incident Response Scheme, it was clear that providers were eager to find solutions that would help them manage consumer experience, workflow, and compliance.
The networking breaks were enthusiastically attended by 400+ care sector leaders, as the attendees from the Aged Care Quality, Safety, and Risk Forum, as well as a co-located Home Care and Disability Services Forums, mixed and mingled in the exhibition area.
Some of the key challenges that the delegates shared included:
– Making sure their organisations were investing in solutions and technologies that allowed them to maintain compliance with new and incoming reforms.
– Ensuring a streamlined quality and compliance reporting process to minimise inefficiencies, save costs, and reduce errors.
– Creating a safe, welcoming, and compliant working environment to attract and retain talent.
Having CareVision in the room was a fantastic opportunity to help providers overcome these challenges, by introducing them to our solution and explaining how it offers an easy-to-use platform that can improve safety, streamline reporting, deliver better care quality, and free up time for aged care providers to look after those that matter most: the consumers.
