Aged Care

The Australian Digital Health Agency is offering healthcare software developers financial assistance to design new or enhanced My Health Record–related functionality in clinical information systems and electronic medications management systems used by residential aged care facilities.

Aged Care Industry Offer

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety released their Final Report on 1 March 2021 containing 148 recommendations. Recommendation 68 specifically refers to the Agency’s support for universal adoption by the aged care sector of digital technology and My Health Record.

The Agency has been working with healthcare professionals who interact with the aged care sector, and the Industry Offer is the first part of a work program to ensure residential aged care facilities have the ability to adopt and interact with My Health Record and use digital technologies more broadly.

This approach recognises the diversity of residential aged care facilities and leverages the deep understanding that software developers who service this sector have of their customers.

The Australian Digital Health Agency offered healthcare software developers financial assistance to design new or enhanced My Health Record–related functionality in clinical information systems and electronic medications management systems used by residential aged care facilities. The offer was targeted at software developers whose Clinical Information Systems and/or electronic Medication Management Systems are currently used by residential aged care facilities in Australia and closed at 2pm(AEDT), Tuesday, 23 November 2021. Successful tenderers will be publicly announced as soon as possible.

On the 20th January, 2022 a webinar was held with successful tenderers recapping the industry offer milestones, discuss timelines and give some foundation technical information about software connection to the My Health Record system.
