Innovation and future proofing on the agenda at ACSA Summit

ACSA Summit 2016

Telstra Health – Aged, Disability & Community Care (ADCC) recently attended the 2016 Aged Care Services Association (ACSA) National Summit in Hobart. With the theme ‘Choose to Thrive’, the conference explored ways for providers to innovate in order to keep up with the changing, consumer-led landscape.

The ACSA Summit was the first opportunity for the new Telstra Health – ADCC division to come together at a conference, with team members from our community care and residential aged care solutions joining forces as one of the conference’s largest exhibitors.

The Summit explored the different techniques, technologies and practices that are helping providers to stay ahead of their competition – both in Australia and internationally. The theme for the Summit was in line with Telstra Health’s plans for a fully integrated software solution across the aged, disability and community care continuum. The push towards intuitive, modular software solutions was listed as a priority for many attendees, confirming Telstra Health’s commitment to deliver user-centred software that creates efficiencies, reduces risk and assists staff in providing high-quality care.

Telstra Health’s Operations Manager – Aged and Community Care, Luke Greive, spoke at the event on the topic of ‘Make it Happen – Technology as the enabler’. Luke’s presentation highlighted some of the technologies that are helping to digitise providers’ operating models, with the purpose of reducing operating overheads and delivering a consumer led experience.

In order to demonstrate how our disability and community care mobile solutions work in the home, our conference booth featured a lounge room set-up; complete with couches, coffee table and display cabinet. We were proud to donate this lounge room furniture to one of our valued clients, Anglicare Tasmania, following the conclusion of the conference. Anglicare Tasmania is a not for profit organisation that provides support services to people in need across Tasmania, with the furniture being put to good use across two shared homes for people with disabilities.

In October, Telstra Health – ADCC will be an exhibitor at Booth 50 at the Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) National Congress in the Gold Coast. We hope to meet with many more aged, disability and community care providers at the Congress, and look forward to sharing how our solutions can help providers create efficiencies and reduce risk.
