WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF IPLANIT?

Aspirico is a leading international health and human services technology company. Founded in 2006 by a group of experienced technology and social care executives, Aspirico is motivated by a driving passion to promote inclusion, transparency, person centred service delivery and to give people and providers tools which will allow them to maximise limited resources. Frustrated with traditional case management systems which tended to focus on measuring "inputs" by staff, Aspirico founders wanted to compliment this capability with the ability to engage service users and family directly and also measure "impact" and efficiency of services provided.

The company name Aspirico is derived from the word "Aspire" and points to our mission to create and deliver inclusive, world class technology solutions which allow people in long term care and community support settings to take control of their life aspirations and their health - thus our company motto "Achieving life's potential". During 2007 - 2010 the company carried out an extensive international research and development program developing a web based support planning framework with leading clients such as SCOPE UK and others. Using this platform, iplanit evolved rapidly during 2008 -10 and Version 1 was launched in early 2010 following a two year development phase. Early contributors included a group of "best practice" person centred providers across the UK and Ireland plus input from leading international consultants such as Paradigm.

iplanit has continued to evolve with input from a growing number of providers to incorporate the needs of older people, mental health and children's services. Now at Version 5.0, iplanit is used extensively across all of these settings and variants have been released to meet the needs of international markets also such as New Zealand and Australia.

HOW DO YOU CHARGE FOR IPLANIT?

Iplanit is charged for on an annual subscription basis which is based on the number of service users which the provider works with. This allows prospective users to quickly get up and running on the system without any capital costs or infrastructure requirement. Client specific changes can be added and tailored remotely in a much more cost effective manner than traditional systems.
