Just over two weeks have passed since the 2023 Home Care Reform Forum in Melbourne. The event was attended by 125+ members of the home care sector, including providers large and small, peak bodies, government, advocates, consumers, academics, and solution providers.
The focus of the event was on the transition to the Support at Home Program and how providers can prepare themselves by streamlining their processes, investing in technology, and upgrading their services. With the commencement of the program being delayed to 2025, discussion centred around how providers can best use the extra time to bolster their quality, safety, and compliance frameworks to make sure they are prepared for this sector redefining reform.
A highlight of the event was when the delegates came together with their peers from co-located Aged and Disability Care Forums to network, share their challenges, and discuss opportunities in the exhibition room. Across the networking breaks, 400+ care sector leaders mixed and mingled. Many of these conversations involved genuinely interested home care leaders reaching out to CareVision and engaging in productive discussions around ways to prepare their organisation for the future.
