Abstract:

Care in Australia is undergoing the most significant reforms ever. From the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety, an uncertain journey through the pandemic to increasing scarcity of skilled care workers, the challenges are many. Providers are now supporting their facilities, residents, families, and staff while simultaneously complying with social distancing, health and wellbeing requirementsCare in Australia is undergoing the most significant reforms ever. From the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety, an uncertain journey through the pandemic to increasing scarcity of skilled care workers, the challenges are many. Providers are now supporting their facilities, residents, families, and staff while simultaneously complying with social distancing, health and wellbeing requirementsIn order to achieve this transformation, effective system and processes, improved strategic thinking, quality service delivery, and robust organisational planning are crucial. AlayaCare Residential is the latest evolution for AlayaCare that, highlighted by its acquisition of Procura six months ago, is committed to developing the data-driven solutions aged care providers need to best serve their residents and improve health outcomes.
It is a new evidence-based best-practice care solution developed from the ground up with input from providers and industry clinical experts. It delivers aged care providers end-to-end to support to meet the needs of their residents while ensuring they are aligned with Aged Care Standards.  Renee Watson, Product Specialist in Residential/Clinical Care, will demonstrate how the AlayaCare Residential Solution benefits the aged and disability sector. 
Learning Objectives: 
Providers will learn how to:• Improve consumer satisfaction with real-time access to relevant care plans. • Gain efficiencies and benefit from a more connected workforce.• Achieve a holistic view of operations and meet reporting requirements.
Client Story:
Early 2020, Invercargill NZ suffered an extreme weather event and had severe flooding in parts that forced the Mataura River to break.
One of Enliven’s facilities Resthaven had to be evacuated at night immediately, 15 of their residents were transferred to Peacehaven. Transferring during a time of stress and urgency was made easier through the use of the AlayaCare Residential, the residents were electronically transferred within minutes making, notes, medication charts, contacts and wounds etc immediately available to the new facility that did not know these residents.
This allowed continuity of care to be seamless and more efficient. This would never have been achievable on paper.
