Pnyx was established in 2012 by Juan Pereyra, a Systems Architect with decades of experience in major IT projects across Argentina, Brazil and Australia.
Juan was working in the Community Services sector at the time, where technology shortcomings were a common occurrence. He began to develop a strong interest in a new technology paradigm – “Social Technology” (i.e. technology being developed in a more organic, humanistic way, where IT systems engage with human interactions, rather than being configured in rigid structures and systems). Social media is based on such a paradigm.
It occurred to him that he could use social technology to create a social, multidisciplinary case management system, thus comm.care was born.
Our core ethos is to ultimately operate for the benefit of the community.
We believe comm.care can help deliver lasting social outcomes - fostering collaboration and creating strong networks amongst community organisations to, in turn, enable them to deliver enhanced care for the vulnerable in our society at an affordable cost.
Comm.care generates and supports wider community networks; when community organisations are connected and able to fully collaborate, they can cut through multiple (and often complex) layers of communication that so often impede effective collaboration and coordinated care – especially where several service providers and organisations are involved.
