Executive summary

The Ausmed Passport™ is a digital certificate for people working in aged care. A staff member can carry it with them from one employer to the next to evidence that they have completed mandatory training relevant to and recognised by the sector.

It's 100% free to both individuals and employers. Why? Because innovations like this need to happen and in this tight fiscal environment, we don't want cost-management to get in the way of driving the change we all want to see.

Ausmed will be using it's own market power to drive the distribution and uptake of the Ausmed Passport™. This includes promoting the offering to 280K users and 300+ organisations who use Ausmed, and the 17,544 employers they work for.

This page is for aged care executives, boards and other key personnel considering registering their organisation for Ausmed Passport™.
