CMS takes out national award

Aged care software producer wins IT industry award.

Care management software producer, iCare solutions has taken out a prize Australian Information Industry Association’s (AIIA’s) iAwards for the best information and communications technology innovation.

iCare received the award in the AIIA’s General Applications category for the most innovative ICT solution supporting a non-finance related business.

“We are thrilled to have been recognised in this way after such a short time on the commercial market,” said iCare Managing Director, Mr Chris Gray.

“Given that this particular Award was open to all general business sectors, it’s also public recognition of the rapid progress made by the Australian aged care industry in embracing IT over the last four years, despite the challenge of coming off a very low IT skills base.”

Mr Gray estimated that 40 per cent of the aged care industry had now converted from paper-based to IT systems. 

AIIA’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Ian Birks, said: “iCare Solutions is an outstanding example of innovation and this award acknowledges their contribution to the industry and to Australia.”

The company will now represent Australia at the Asia Pacific ICT Awards in Indonesia, where it will compete against winners from 16 other Asia Pacific countries including China, India and Korea.

The AIIA iAwards are presented by the AIIA, the Australian Financial Review and the CSIRO ICT Centre.
