Hayylo, one of the leading client portal/communication platforms across the Australian aged care, disability and community services industry, has announced new board representation and investment from key groups.
The investment will be directed towards product and growth initiatives set to see Hayylo expand further in 2022.
With workforce shortages, increasing client demand and a constant change to funding and regulations, providers need solutions, and companies like Hayylo help address these problems by connecting key people across aged care services in one unified platform.
Alerts, enquiries, social updates, and messages all flow through Hayylo’s platform securely and are communicated via customers’ preferred channel – including app, SMS, phone, and email.
This provides a single source for everyone involved.
Hayylo’s technology enables providers to deliver a consumer-directed care model – fostering independence, choice, transparency, and inclusion.
It also helps providers driving greater operational efficiency by making better use of internal resources whilst achieving high worker and customer experiences.
The organisation already has partnerships in place with Telstra Health, CIVICA and other leading software companies across the sector.
“Over the last few years, we have tackled what is one of the core challenges across the sector – interoperability,” Hayylo CEO Greg Satur, pictured above right with COO and fellow co-founder, Simon Heaysman, says.
“Hayylo’s ability to integrate with all leading products was something from the outset we wanted to focus on.
“We are excited about this next phase of growth and being able to drive positive change for our sector.”
The investment comes on the back of a strong financial year for Hayylo, which featured a doubling of its client base to now include Chorus, integratedliving Australia, Mercy Services, Southern Cross Care Tasmania, Life Care, NovaCare, Carrington Care, ADSSI Limited, and Churches of Christ in Queensland.
Along with the significant client additions, Hayylo has announced the appointment of two new board members: Alex Oppes and Heath Shonhan.
Oppes is a director with SVA’s Impact Investing team and manages SVA’s Diversified Impact Fund, which provides investments to partners focused on alleviating disadvantage.
“I’m pleased to be joining the board of Hayylo, helping older Australians make informed choices about their care so they can live the lives they choose,” Oppes says.
“Hayylo is a critical piece of infrastructure that helps aged care providers deliver better care despite significant workforce and COVID-related challenges.”
Heath Shonhan is a partner at Bentleys Qld and responsible for advising high growth clients, private family enterprise, multinational corporations, government, banks, churches, and healthcare institutions.
“I am very pleased to be able to support Hayylo in improving the lives of the elderly in our communities,” Shonhan says.
“Particularly as Hayylo helps solve a number of major problems in aged care highlighted by the recent royal commission.”
