Canberra-based technology firm Humanetix has partnered with international biomedical commercialisation specialist BioScience Managers to expand its aged care management platform globally.
Humanetix’s ACE is a point-of-care management system and decision-support and clinical workflow platform that supports staff and the delivery of care to aged care residents.
The Commonwealth Department of Health funded its development and a pilot as well as an independent evaluation undertaken by The University of Canberra.
It found a 20 per cent saving in nursing time due to less travelling and paper work, and improvements in the quality of care delivered to residents and staff productivity.
The partnership aims to expand Humanetix into home and hospital settings, across Australia and globally, including to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service and regional hospitals across the United States of America.
Humanetix chief systems architect and co-founder Matt Darling said ACE was born from a need for a clinical management system to improve safety, quality, efficiency and data quality in aged care.
“Our new partnership with BioScience Managers will allow us to serve more aged care providers and to innovate into other parts of the health sector – using the same real-time technology to reduce human error, maximise carer time, and remove the end of shift reporting,” Mr Darling said.
BioScience Managers managing partner Jeremy Curnock Cook said the partnership aimed to make a difference on a global scale.
“This is an exciting partnership – taking a local and genuinely innovative platform and leveraging our networks and know-how to develop a global footprint that really makes a difference,” Mr Curnock Cook said.
