ASX-listed tech company, InteliCare Holdings, has scored a trifecta of peak technology-body industry awards at Australia's longest running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program, clinching the overall $10,000 prize in the process. The Perth-based company says winning multiple gongs reflects the tech industry’s recognition of its proprietary artificial intelligence online platform and its impact on the aged-care and disability-care sectors.

ASX-listed tech company, InteliCare Holdings, has scored a trifecta of peak technology-body industry awards at Australia's longest running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program clinching the overall $10,000 prize in the process.

The Perth-based company says winning the multiple gongs reflects growing universal recognition of its proprietary artificial intelligence online platform and its impact on the aged-care and disability-care sectors.

InteliCare took out its two nominated categories in the 2020 iAwards – the Not-For-Profit and Community Solution of the Year and Technology Platform Solution of the Year – as well as the prestigious overall Victorian Government Inspiration Award from a field consisting of more than 40 technology companies, including some of the biggest names in research and technology.

For almost three decades the Australian Information Industry Association has been running the iAwards program, looking to promote an innovation nation and excellence in the digital space through the application of information technology.

InteliCare’s platform is an internet-based mechanism designed to help family members and or care providers monitor the wellbeing of elderly and or frail people living at home.

It uses smart in-home sensors to gather information about the activities of elderly or frail family members whereby the system learns an individual’s daily movement habits within the home and sends regular reassurance messages to carers via an app.

Most importantly, if the system detects behaviours that signify a change in the elderly and or frail person’s normal daily routine, a real-time alert notification is sent to the smartphone or other device of care providers – family, carers or healthcare professionals.

The in-home sensors are linked to the company’s artificial intelligence technology, which picks up the resident’s normal daily movement patterns and abnormal activities.

InteliCare Chief Executive Officer, Jason Waller said: “I am … immensely proud of the team for obtaining this national recognition across an elite field. To win one award was a thrill, to take out three including the overall category was beyond belief. It’s a five-star review from some of the highest credentialed names in technology and independent validation of just how important our system has been to the lives of many people.”
