The dashboard was developed using a co-design approach with IT experts, aged care staff and decision makers and palliative care representatives. The dashboard builds upon what many aged care IT systems already collect and uses the ELDAC Care Model to report data about care at the end of life.

This will provide us with important information on how useful the IT companies and aged care services have found the ELDAC Digital Dashboard in supporting the care of older Australians approaching the end of their life.
You can have a little play with the dashboard prototype demo. While this isn’t the whole system, it will give you an idea of how it works!
