icare's Innovation & Partnerships team facilitates partnerships with organisations to develop and test innovative ideas.
We extend the reach and new supports for our injured customers, their carers and families and to prevent or reduce injuries in the workplace.
Our aim is to improve customer outcomes in three icare schemes – Lifetime Care, Workers Insurance, and Treasury Managed Fund – and to solve problems with long-term implications in our community as part of icare’s role to provide insurance and care services.
Positive, healthy workplace cultures and systems that support a reduction in physical and psychological injury.
Injured workers can access new recovery and return to work pathways, including those at risk of longer term claims.
Quality of life
New services and systems of support that improve quality of life for the injured and their carers and families.
Find out about our initiatives and how we address the needs of our customers.
