The COTA Plug-In is a community of older people who are willing to be “plugged in” to research and innovation about services and products targeting older people.
Launched in 2017, the Plug-In concept was designed to provide feedback and help with the design of new technology, services, policy and products that support ageing well.

The theme of the ITAC 2018 conference – Co-Designing our Digital Future emphasises the importance of assistive technology supporting service quality and independence. The conference will bring together local and international experts across the fields of community care, medication management, assistive technologies and offsite information systems delivery. These critical aged care topics will be discussed from a practical perspective, highlighting the information we need to know now to better manage and design aged care service delivery which will deliver on the evolving environment of enhanced consumer choice.
