ITAC 2018 Co-Designing Banner Image
I was pleased to be presenting at ITAC, held this year at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

In its 11th year ITAC is a pivotal event for both technology buyers and providers in the Aged Care industry. It is always an honour to be included in such a great programme with big name speakers like Arron Wood and Stevan Premutico. With over 400 attendees from many diverse organisations including Alaya Care, The Department of Health and The Global Centre for Modern Ageing, ITAC drives thought leadership on the hot topics of Aged Care.

I discussed how Holland Thomas’ development of our lone worker personal safety solution My Safety Buddy had given us unique insights into the best technology driven solutions on the market for lone worker safety.

Key areas of discussion in my presentation were:

• The key statistics around the cost of an injury to an organisation.

• What functionality organisations should be looking for when thinking about solutions for lone worker safety.

• The benefits of app based solutions for lone worker safety compared to stand alone devices.

• Roadblocks and setbacks we have seen when implementing technology driven solutions for lone worker safety.

We also looked at affordability against the backdrop of increasing duty of care requirements and decreasing budgets – a key consideration for us when we were developing My Safety Buddy.

Feel welcome to contact me directly if you are interested in finding out more about My Safety Buddy or would like a copy of my presentation.
