Our expertise encompasses
care, technology, business, and government

Located in Sydney, Australia, CTARS was founded by Dr Lisa Fahey and Brendan Fahey, who have a long history in providing innovative solutions to the industry. Their significant industry knowledge has guided the development of CTARS software at every stage to meet operational needs.

CTARS was founded with clinicians’ and consultants’ wide-ranging expertise in healthcare, human services, and technology. At CTARS we identified the challenges from both the perspective of care organisations requiring a Client Management System (CMS) and from the clients receiving support, and then built the solutions with these challenges in mind.

Since 2009, CTARS has always been committed to driving a continuous review and redesign process with proactive collaboration with regulatory and industry bodies. For example, as an NDIS provider software, CTARS incorporates modules that ensure compliance with NDIS regulations, including a robust reporting and incident management system.

Today our management team includes expert clinicians and consultants with expertise in many types of technology, including agile software development, local and global application development, communications technology design and integration, and API-first strategy design and deployment.

We continually invest in research and development to ensure our software remains at the forefront of the industry and to assist our customers in providing better outcomes, while offering an industry-competitive and simplified pricing structure.
