Enhanced technology at the core of better aged care: AMA

Digital health, clinical informatics and assistive technologies have the potential to significantly improve the aged care system through increased efficiency and coordination of care providers, the Australian Medical Association says.

Releasing a position statement on innovation in aged care last month, AMA president Tony Bartone said innovation and enhanced technology must be at the core of any reforms to improve the levels of care, compassion and coordination in Australia’s aged care sector.

Great to see the AMA is in agreement with the ACIITC on the need for better use of technology in aged care. It is important that the introduction, implementation and evaluation of the technology is done systematically with the outcome of better safer care for those who need it.
The ACIITC Roadmap is a good start.
