Aged care

With an ageing population, Australia's need for digital health has never been greater.

 

Population projections for Australia suggest that there will be four million people aged between 65–84 years by 2022 with rapid acceleration of some age groups (over 65 and over 85) in the next ten years.

Support and care for older Australians is currently either provided through the residential aged care sector or by community-based service providers in the home. The use of technology in these environments can have a meaningful impact on the quality of care.
