Micromax Health is committed to providing devices to support improved healthcare services. For those in the aged care industry, providing the best patient care possible in the most cost effective and efficient way is a priority.
We understand that caring for aging patients, those with chronic illness or dementia presents unique challenges. Dedicated time and specialised care are needed to ensure the needs of the patients are met. Challenges may arise with limited staff numbers caring for an ever growing number of aging patients. A recent study conducted by Deloitte on behalf of the Aged Care Guild identified some of the challenges the Australian aged care sector face. One of those challenges identified is the long term financial sustainability of aged care funding. Other trends included transitioning the aged care sector towards a more consumer-oriented, market-based funding mechanism, an increased emphasis on consumer choice in aged care and the trend of many Australians choosing to ‘age in place’ or in their homes.
Turning challenges into opportunities
These challenges can be viewed as opportunities for aged care providers and home care workers to improve their services and differentiate their quality of care. One way to do this is by using integrated medical grade IT devices and solutions. This is a space Micromax Health is familiar with.

Micromax Health seeks to assist healthcare providers at aged care facilities, and home care providers, to fulfil their demanding responsibilities. Our Onyx range of medical grade IT solutions can help automate certain manual work flows. The medical computing solutions we provide assist the aged care sector to effectively implement new technologies into their workforce; technologies that are user-friendly and easy to train your workforce on. Our medical IT devices save nurses and professionals valuable time so that they can physically attend to the needs of their patients. Ageing patients also benefit as our medical grade computers offer improved accuracy of care provided.
Other products, such as our Pressure-Sensitive Detection Mats, help aged care staff to be informed when a patient moves from their location. This solution can minimise the risk of falls and ensures that medical staff are notified to assist the patient as soon as possible.
