Post-election, advocates are keen for the new Government to initiate measures to alleviate the chronic workforce shortages in the aged care industry. Jason Waller, CEO of Intelicare, says that the role assistive technologies can play in charting a way out of the crisis should be given more attention. BIANCA ROBERTS reports
InteliCare CEO Jason Waller says more money simply isn’t going to fix the structural issues of a critical workforce shortage. Until we work smarter, empowering workers with technology that allows them to deliver better care to more people more efficiently, the budget simply goes unspent and services continue to go undelivered.

A new strategic alliance between a leading global health care services provider and an aged care software developer is looking to capitalise on the growing appetite of Australian seniors to go digital post global pandemic.
