StewartBrown Chartered Accountants are delighted to present the nationally accredited Aged Care Finance Forum for the 2024 Financial Year. Join over 400 attendees nationwide in discussing the financial trends and analysis within the Australian Aged Care Sector. 

The StewartBrown Forum has allowed the opportunity for aged care providers, including finance and operational staff across the sector, to discuss challenges and share knowledge and insights. This year, we are continuing in that tradition and after lengthy workshops by the StewartBrown team, we have put together a program to ensure that the 2024 StewartBrown Forum is the most beneficial material your organisation will receive this year.

The aged care sector continues to be under financial sustainability pressure. The main financial issue is in relation to the Government’s response to the Aged Care Taskforce recommendations and the implementation pathway. The StewartBrown Forum will provide the latest detailed modelling and scenario analysis using a number of cohorts – region; size; resident mix; staffing mix; accommodation pricing and occupancy.

The Forum will have a specific emphasis on workforce. The increased mandated minutes from October 2024, the flexibility to meet up to 10% of your service-level RN targets with care time provided by ENs, an analysis of the 24/7 RN compliance and an analysis of Agency staff costs will form part of the discussions.

The financial and operational implementation of the Support at Home program will be covered in detail. How this will affect case management and package management revenue has important financial implications. What Level 5 funding may look like if introduced is relevant. Strategies for increasing revenue utilisation and improving the revenues will be discussed.

Technology will form an important role in the future of aged care service delivery and compliance. The latest technology trends will be reviewed and provide an opportunity for participants to make comparisons.

The StewartBrown Forum will continue to be the sector’s opportunity for an in-depth analysis of the financial sustainability, investment climate and innovation required for the sector. The StewartBrown Forum will also include external expert presentations including the University of Technology Health Department, covering sustainability, legal implications, consumer expectations and the impact of current and future reforms.
