The Australian Government contributed to the 2-year development and deployment of Humanetix Aged Care Ecosystem (ACE) in an aged care facility beginning in June 2018. The University of Canberra conducted an independent evaluation on the impact of the technology on care quality and on the efficiency of care delivery.
The findings were that ACE improved the quality of care while increasing efficiency, including a 20% saving in nurse time.
These results were achieved despite the added stress and workload on staff resulting from the COVID outbreak. This is a massive efficiency in aged care facility operation, the largest cost centre in the sector, far greater than available from normal transactional business systems.
