Digital design and technology company Alive and innovation network innovAGEING, established in late 2017 by Leading Age Services Australia (LASA), are pleased to announce a strategic alliance in support of innovation in Australia’s aged care industry.

The organisations will join forces to explore ideas, challenges and solutions to reinterpret the concept of ageing in relation to design and service delivery as well as foster the development of new business models through innovation and enable the industry to be more consumer-centric.

“Working with the existing expertise across the Aged Care Industry to help drive innovation in a way that results in better care outcomes for families and care providers is our core purpose for this alliance. Partnering with organisations who deliberately pursue improvement by re-designing established models and experiences with new ideas fuelled by technology is central to our DNA.

“Our partnership with innovAGEING will provide the perfect platform for all of us to do our best work and achieve real outcomes.

“We are excited about this partnership with innovAGEING and look forward to participating and collaborating across a network of like-minded disrupters and change-makers to help improve the lives of older Australians,” says Luke Harvey-Palmer, Alive Director.

Commenting on the announcement Merlin Kong, LASA’s Principal Advisor, Innovation noted:

“innovAGEING is Australia’s first national innovation network for the age services industry and we are delighted to announce this partnership with Alive.

“Alive is not only a like-minded, forward-thinking and innovative business, but also has a people-centred mindset, which resonates strongly with the aims of the innovAGEING network.

“Australia’s ageing population presents an innovation imperative for the age services industry as it responds to reform challenges, market opportunities, new technologies and changing consumer preferences.

“This partnership will help accelerate innovation and collaboration in our industry to translate ideas into action and deliver better outcomes for older Australians,” Merlin Kong said.
