"The Federal Government will provide an additional $662 million in funding for aged care and senior Australians in what it is calling a 'significant investment'.
The bulk of the money will go towards two key initiatives, with more than $280 million committed for 10,000 additional home care packages and $320 million allocated for aged care providers to help increase support."

A recent article on the ABC website stated that Hospital in the Home program is to receive $34.5 million over four years in ACT budget).
This is partly driven by patient demand and partly driven by the strain of patient loads on hospitals. But as this trend is on the increase, it is more important than ever for healthcare businesses to be open to the idea of adding a mobile workforce. Some businesses, however, don't know where to start with this.
That's why, at HMS, we have done the thinking for you. Our software keeps office and field workers in synch, allows 24/7 fully secure information access, including to client’s records, manages bookings and cancellations, collects billing from the field, enables creation of on-the-go expenses and timesheets, creates customer alerts for delays and much more. It is also e-Health and NDIS ready. Basically everything you need to tap into this valuable market!
So what are you waiting for? It's time to go mobile today.
