How providers can use remote monitoring to achieve business wins
There’s a lot of talk today about the role of technology in senior living. From automating caregiver tasks to managing residents with passive monitoring, technology can change the way senior housing providers streamline their practices and spend their time with residents. But with all this technology, providers need to ensure they are improving care and boosting business functions as a result. Minnesota-based Guardian Angels Senior Services is finding both to be true. The organization has implemented Healthsense’s remote health and safety monitoring services in two of its communities to date, with measured success.
An Economic Analysis of Technology Enabled Care
This study’s purpose is to determine if there is a return on investment (ROI) for implementing Healthsense’s remote monitoring platform in (AL) and independent living (IL) communities. The Healthsense platform consists of health and safety monitoring systems that monitor daily activities and behaviors. The subjects of the study are seven facilities owned and operated in Minnesota; the perspective of the study is that of the communities’ owners and operators.
The State of Senior Care Technology – A Senior Housing News Study
The number of aging Americans is quickly rising with 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 each day. Couple this with the element that the overall senior population is becoming more clinically complex with limited caregivers, and senior care communities are left with many unique challenges. However, one solution to these growing challenges is technology. In an effort to gain a deeper understanding of the views surrounding senior care technology, Healthsense partnered with Senior Housing News for the “Healthsense State of Senior Housing Technology and Care Survey.”
CAST Case Study: Northfield Retirement Community Utilizes Remote Monitoring Technology to Improve Clinical Effectiveness and Increase Revenue
Northfield Retirement Community adopted remote monitoring technology to proactively manage and anticipate residents’ care needs, automatically detecting adverse situations and emerging health concerns before they turn into emergencies. To date, the program has improved response time, resident/family satisfaction, staff productivity, and increased occupancy/retention rates. “We are able to gather more information about our residents so we can more closely monitor how quickly or how slowly they are progressing to different clinical levels. This has allowed us to offer more services than we have in the past, which gives us the opportunity to realize additional revenue,” said Kyle Nordine, President and CEO, Northfield Retirement Community.
