Apollo Care partners with healthcare technology innovator Rauland Australia
Senior care operator Apollo Care has partnered with technology innovator Rauland Australia to improve team communication and responsiveness with residents of its Queensland homes.
âRauland’s high-tech Responder nurse call solutions will be delivered to three Apollo sites in Maryborough and Rockhampton. Apollo is committed to giving its healthcare team increased mobility when responding to residents, liaising with other staff and accessing documentation â, Said Cameron Burt, CEO of Rauland Australia (pictured).
âApollo is about to choose a mobile device (using 4D radar technology) that can deliver all services using an application interface. A direct voice path from the mobile device to resident rooms will reduce response times and improve the satisfaction of residents (and their families) when they need help.
Barry Ashcroft, COO of Apollo Care, said the company’s goal is to help older Australians live with grace and dignity.
âInvesting in technology is an essential part of this service. By improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our care teams, we can free up more time for them to focus on what is most important – resident care. he said.
âTechnology is not only a catalyst, but it is absolutely essential for senior care facilities to consistently deliver quality care to their residents. One of the main recommendations of the Royal Commission report was that senior caregivers formulate a technology strategy and roadmap that combines business strategy with improved resident outcomes. This recommendation is at the forefront of Apollo’s investment and expansion strategy.
