Logan Ross, CEO of Vitalcare, explained “Vitalcare is committed to making a difference using innovation, technology and digital advancement in a collaborative initiative for the industry. We are determined to improve the quality of aged and community care through new technology.”
Vitalcare has committed $100,000 in prizes and project funding and invited students and start-ups to enter its 2020 Innovation Challenge. The mission of the Challenge is to create innovative technology initiatives that positively impact older Australians or people living with a disability or cognitive impairment.
A key initiative in this year’s Innovation Challenge is a collaboration with industry experts and judges through an online platform for students and start-ups to engage with clients and industry experts. In addition, Vitalcare will also provide entrants free access to Vitalcare’s wired and IoT wireless nurse call platforms, critical messaging systems and devices, along with mentorship for students.
This year, Vitalcare welcomes Rod Young, Chairman of ITAC and Director of Horsley Services to the expert panel of judges. This collaboration highlights the importance of recognising the need to accelerate innovation, technology and digital advancement in the sector.
