Adelaide start-up looks to drag aged care out of the analogue age

Adelaide start-up Lumary is a workflow management platform aimed at streamlining processes for workers in the aged care and disability space.

The brainchild of founders Joseph Mercorella and Matthew English, Lumary was conceived during their time in the IT department of the SA government. With the introduction of the NDIS, Mercorella and English saw a need to ease the relationships between providers, consumers and government. “The problem we’re trying to solve is the disparate systems that exist in the organisations technology stack today,” said Mercorella.


According to the Australian Financial Review, for financial year 2019 Lumary handled $750 million in NDIS funds and has now secured $2 million of funding from investor Equity Venture Partners to grow the business.

Aged Care Insite talks with Mercorella to hear what Lumary is and what it can do for the aged care sector.

  1. How far away is Lumary coming on the market. I have been working in Aged Care for over 2 decades and have been frustrated that there is not one software that will do everything from the time of the initial enquiry right through to when the person leaves. Currently we use a different software for financial, governance, document control, key register, care management, pre admission, audits – that’s 7 different softwares that don’t talk to each other and room allocations is done manually!!! Its a real nightmare and I would be very interested to see the work of Joseph Mercorella and Matthew English.
