With the current climate of increasing scrutiny on the Health and Social Care industries, it is crucial to think about efficiency and compliance. Providers (owners/operators), of community health and disability services, residential aged care facilities or home care and retirement village businesses, are; amongst other things, continually seeking to improve the lives of the people they service. This can only be realised by reducing the operational risks and increase efficiency / profitability.

Connection, integration, consolidation and alignment is the next step in the evolution of process automation and the delivery of high-quality care. Change in operational standards are integral to relieve time to provide the best care that we can.

Last year's Health Metrics World Conference saw more than 30 speakers, interactive workshops and networking activities. This year's conference will once again inform and engage providers of aged care, retirement living, primary health care, home and disability care.

Industry leaders and service-providers are invited to join us to hear the latest on Technology & Innovation, Leadership & Management, Quality & Standards, Analytics & Reporting, Government, Policy and the Royal Commission.

PainChek® uses cameras in smart devices to capture a brief video of the person, which is analysed in real time using facial recognition software to detect the presence of facial micro- expressions that are indicative of the presence of pain. This data is then combined with other indicators of pain, such as vocalisations, behaviours and movements captured to calculate a pain severity score. Due to its ease of use and its reproducibility, PainChek® will be able to be used to detect and measure a person’s pain. PainChek® has received TGA and CE Mark clearance as a class 1 medical device.
