The workforce represents the largest expense in aged care. It is critical to business continuity that employees are recognised as an asset, one that must be invested in to continue a trajectory of success. As we strive for the highest quality care, the practices used to deploy skilled workers in the most efficient way will hinge all success. Optimisation is cost, productivity and the bottom line, however, it is paramount that modern aged care knows that optimisation is also supporting its greatest asset – its people.
Technology has a unique ability to marry together many of the ingredients for workforce success, including safety, autonomy, engagement and compliance.
Organisations in the aged care industry are set up for success when they have access to accurate and actionable data. Workforce data provides insight into the trends that are unique to aged care employees and businesses, as well as those trends that appear across the continuum of care. Often patterns, outliers and abnormalities can fly under the radar during day-to-day operations, and so it is important to have the right tools in place to shine a light on areas of opportunity.
