Canberra-based technology firm Humanetix has partnered with international biomedical commercialisation specialist BioScience Managers to expand its aged care management platform globally.

The partnership aims to expand Humanetix into home and hospital settings across Australia and globally, including to the UK’s National Health Service and regional hospitals across the US.

Humanetix’s Aged Care Ecosystem (ACE) provides a platform for point-of-care management, decision making and workflow aimed at supporting aged care staff.

The Commonwealth Department of Health funded its development and a residential care pilot as well as an independent evaluation undertaken by The University of Canberra.

It found a 20 per cent saving in nursing time due to less travelling and paper work, and improvements in the quality of care delivered to residents and staff productivity.

Humanetix chief systems architect and co-founder Matt Darling said ACE was born from a need for a clinical management system to improve safety, quality, efficiency and data quality in aged care.

“Our new partnership with BioScience Managers will allow us to serve more aged care providers and to innovate into other parts of the health sector – using the same real-time technology to reduce human error, maximise carer time, and remove the end of shift reporting,” Mr Darling said.
