The figures come from research published today by the Aged Care Industry IT Council in its Capabilities in Aged and Community Care Readiness: An Evaluation of Innovation and Technology (CARE-IT) report, which also found that cost, expertise and appropriate supporting systems remained three of the most frequently identified barriers to improved uptake of technology.
