Aged Care & Hospital
Increasingly our business is part of Integrated Service Systems assisting with the successful operation of our clients’ facilities.
We work closely with procurement or property services managers to help to define an equipment range that achieves Clinical Functionality, whilst creating an Aesthetically Pleasing Environment that is Cost Effective from a purchasing and maintenance perspective across the life of the asset. We bring expert Equipment Advice, along with sourcing and product development capabilities to deliver best-in-class value to our partners
Aidacare Procurement Portals
Our bespoke Procurement Systems allow streamlined ordering, whilst providing insight and budget-control for business operators. Integrated user hierarchies; authority levels; and purchasing controls empower operations level personnel to make decisions within an effective control environment to protect owners or operators from budget blow-outs. Electronic invoicing functionality reduces administrative burden and overhead costs. Do you have insight into the number of “split orders” flowing under-the-radar of your monthly authorisation levels? Are you planning on spending a fortune on a procurement “punch-out” system?
Aidacare can work with you to develop a low-cost procurement control system and provide a pre-set authorisation gateway that fits within your existing business processes and controls.
Aidacare Discharge Management Systems
Hospital discharge planners require quick and effective systems for booking discharge equipment, supported by the capability to promptly deliver and install equipment in a patient’s home. Ward managers also require an efficient means to rent equipment for short-term needs such as pressure care mattresses for high pressure-ulcer risk patients. Aidacare’s Hospital Discharge Management systems provide streamlined: Discharge Rental; Ward Rental; and, Assisted Private Rental options. Importantly, these systems are configurable to assist the Hospital Operator to account for costs within cost centres and to control spend with Hierarchical User-Approval Levels. If you’re interested in how some of Australia’s Major Hospital Providers have leveraged these systems to streamline their equipment management then ask us how we can help.
Training & In-Service
Our equipment specialists and clinical educators deliver structured training on relevant areas to our client’s staff. This can be logged for accreditation purposes but moreover reduces the risk of caregiver and resident injury.
We distribute equipment to where it is needed consistently and reliably. That’s why we are trusted on Contracts by Government Agencies and some of Australia’s largest Aged Care and Hospital Providers.
