Improve the data sharing capacity within the residential aged care industry, in order to make clinical information systems more consistent, reliable and efficient.

Project objective

This project aims to improve the way that data is used within the Australian residential aged care system.

Currently, residential aged care facilities in Australia use a variety of clinical information systems to collect and manage data related to the assessment and care of residents. These individual and distinct systems make it difficult for data sharing within organisations and hampers comparisons of care, quality and performance across providers.

This work is looking to improve that by impacting benchmarking of quality and performance outcomes.

Researchers will develop resources, as well as a thorough implementation guide to enable benchmarking of aged care organisations. They will also develop a methodology for validating the use of the implementation guide in collaboration with operational aged care vendors.
