Microsoft Dynamics for Community Care

Meeting the needs of citizens in areas such as child and family services, employment, disability, housing and community is one of the great challenges in Australia today. Delivering effective human and social services reform and improving citizen outcomes requires collaboration and deep skills across governments, not-for-profit organisations and private sector service providers.

The Consumer Directed Care reforms are a fundamental shift for many providers. Thriving in the market-based system will require fresh thinking, new technology and alternative ways of working to meet the needs of our ageing population.

How you react to the change in funding, delivery models and participant support is a challenge for any business in the industry. This, coupled with limited IT infrastructure, can quickly lead to frustrations for staff and customers alike.
