GovTech provider Civica welcomes Budget 2024 investments in Health, Care and Housing industries

GovTech provider says the governments’ recent budget announcement offers some welcome measures across the Health, Care and Housing industries, with potential opportunities for growth in the technology sector.

Ben Cowling, Executive Director APAC, Civica said:

"It’s encouraging to witness substantial investments directed towards Health & Care industries including Medicare, Aged Care & the NDIS.

To maximise these resources, we need to strategically incorporate technology across our healthcare services, generating valuable insights that can inform decision-making, ultimately resulting in improved patient outcomes and cost-effective healthcare. By leveraging tech-driven approaches, the healthcare system can optimise operations and enhance patient care, optimising this substantial investment in health.

We are also delighted to see the government's $10 billion Housing Australia Future Fund (HAFF) continues to be a priority. It’s imperative that we intensify our efforts to harness the power of data in our housing sector. This approach can revolutionise decision-making processes, facilitating the creation of better, more sustainable, and cost-efficient homes.

Finally, we welcome the Budget 2024’s focus on a Future Made in Australia, recognising the potential of how technology can drive growth and prosperity in a changing global economic and strategic landscape. These initiatives underscore a dedicated effort to utilise technology as a catalyst for progress across various sectors, paving the way for a promising future for the country."
