National Disability Insurance Scheme and ShiftCare
ShiftCare, April 4, 2016
Replacing the current disability support system in New South Wales, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide individually funded packages of support for eligible people with disability, as well as information, linkages and capacity building (ILC) support to people with disability, their carers, and the community. The NDIS aims to give people with disability, their families and carers more choice and control over the support they receive.
The NDIS supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. This supports may help you achieve goals in many aspects of your life, including independence, involvement in your community, education, employment and health and wellbeing. The NDIS gives you more choice and control over how, when and where your supports are provided.
NDIS and new technology
With the onset of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), disability services organizations and care providers have a wide range of new challenges, especially in terms of receiving payment under the new service delivery model. The new model requires disability service provider organizations to have a record of service date, service type and other details as well.
NDIS and ShiftCare
ShiftCare software has been designed to help organizations such as disability care centres use technology to streamline their operations, enhance efficiency and minimize problems that can come with manual or outdated software.
ShiftCare is currently used by a group of disability service providers who understand the necessity of accessing a cloud-based, online database system that will facilitate accurate record-keeping to ensure real-time payments and electronic invoicing. These features make ShiftCare the right technology partner for disability service providers.
