Ryman Prepares for Tech Advancement with ‘Ready, Set, Tech

This week marks the nationwide engagement with NZTech’s Techweek, aimed at propelling the advancement of technology in New Zealand.

At Ryman, we firmly believe that a fulfilling life only grows richer with age, and this encompasses the diverse range of technological offerings we provide for our residents. Below, we highlight some of these innovations.

myRyman Resident App

The myRyman resident app is now widely utilized by independent residents across New Zealand, offering them the convenience of managing their vibrant village lifestyle right at their fingertips. With this app, residents can stay updated on village news and events, create their own schedules, and book exclusive Ryman events and activities.

Designed specifically for older adults, including those with cognitive decline and vision impairment, the app underwent extensive interviews and user-testing with Ryman residents. It received ‘The Digital Design Apps and Software Green Tick Award’ at the Australian Good Design Awards in 2023 and was named ‘Innovation of the Year – Technology Social Engagement’ at the 2024 Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards.

The Saffron Food Services Platform

Our outstanding kitchen teams understand the importance of a good meal. Recently, we introduced the Saffron hospitality platform to enhance the resident dining experience. With Saffron, care staff can take meal orders on tablets, providing residents with meal photographs and ingredient details.

This platform allows our chefs and kitchen staff to access detailed dietary profiles, including allergies, nutritional requirements, and personal preferences. It enables us to offer a diverse and delicious menu that caters to different nutritional needs and food preferences. Cheyne Chalmers, Chief Executive Officer NZ, stated, “Saffron is a win-win, enhancing the resident dining experience while streamlining operations for village staff and delivering overall business efficiencies.”

myRyman Care

On the care side, we have the innovative myRyman Care app. Located on devices in our care centers, this custom-made app allows our care teams to record daily tasks at a resident’s bedside.

Through this app, teams can access and update clinical data more efficiently, enabling them to spend more quality time with residents. Described by our clinical team members as ‘magic,’ myRyman Care has revolutionized the way we deliver care. In 2019, it was named ‘Innovation of the Year – Care Model’ at the Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards, recognizing its contribution to improving the quality of life for older people.

At Ryman, we take pride in the technological solutions available to our residents, empowering them to stay connected and live well.
