Residential Aged Care

In 1998, the Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency was appointed by the Department of Health and Ageing as the accreditation body under the Aged Care Act 1997. Accreditation is the arrangement established by the Australian Government to verify that Residential Aged Care Facilities provide quality care and services for residents. All Residential Aged Care Facilities must be accredited in order to receive funding from the government through residential care subsidies.

It is the responsibility of the approved provider of a home to demonstrate that it meets the Accreditation Standards which are set out in the Quality of Care Principles 1997. The process of accreditation is outlined in the Accreditation Grant Principles 2011. Once a Residential Aged Care Facility is accredited, the approved provider is required to maintain the Residential Aged Care Facilities performance against the Accreditation Standards and undertake continuous improvement.

Health Care Informed (HCI) has recently launched Q-Pulse powered by HCI, a Quality Management Software System, for Residential Aged Care Facilities which will help you achieve and maintain regulatory compliance. It manages Document Control, Audits and Opportunities for Improvements. It allows for the practical implementation of best practice clinical care through a research framework of policies and procedures, knowledge and research.
