Aged care tech company InteliCare is expanding in the national home care market after signing a contract with Victorian based provider Like Our Own.
Like Our Own hopes the technology, including AI-integrated sensors that can provide it with data about clients, such as signs of deterioration, will improve its insights and help it provide personalised services.
The technology will also allow staff to make observations remotely by referring to client information provided via the technology, removing the need for them staff to be rostered on 24/7.
Alec Tarshis, Founder and CEO of Like Our Own, says he believes smart technology is key to helping Australia’s ageing population remain active in the community.
“The integration of InteliCare’s smart technology moves us closer to this goal by arming us with the data needed to provide excellent client care,” he said in a statement.
It comes after InteliCare last month announced it had partnered with the WA-base South office of international provider The Comfort Keepers, which has 610 franchised offices accros the US, Canada, NZ and Singapore.
The South Office provides homecare services to over 160 home care package clients, along with services to NDIS participants.
Gaye Dadd, Managing Director Comfort Keepers South Office, said in a statement that the technology will allow staff to provide better care to clients.
“When attempting to solve industry wide issues, such as critical workforce shortages and client deterioration, we knew we needed an innovative solution.”
