Posted by Aaron Jackson on May 4, 2017

Throughout their lives, baby boomers have been known for changing norms and revolutionizing the world. That will continue to be in their expectations for senior living. More than 10,000 baby boomers are flooding into retirement daily, and ultimately into senior living at some place in the senior care spectrum. They are accustomed to using technology to their benefit, and they will be expecting quality services that include all that information technology (IT) has to offer.

Business Advantages of Passive Health Monitoring

Posted by Eric Humes on Apr 13, 2017

Today, there’s an alternative available that is smarter, more efficient and ultimately more effective than a traditional nurse call system. Passive health monitoring is a system of interlocking technologies that provides more timely response to crises. Passive health monitoring helps ensure seniors’ dignity and sense of independence and allows operators to more effectively manage staffing—one of the biggest cost centers in any housing operation.

Even given all the advantages of a modern passive health monitoring system and the possibilities enabled by AI, senior housing operators still must consider the business advantages before committing - just as they would with any new technology. As may already be apparent, there are numerous ways in which these solutions can contribute to the health of a senior housing operation’s bottom line.

Preventive Care with Passive Health Monitoring

Posted by Andy Belval on Apr 5, 2017

By their nature, traditional nurse call systems are reactive. Not only do they only respond to an incident that has already occurred, these systems require residents to take specific action during a crisis (when their abilities might be diminished).

Monitoring via environmentally embedded sensors takes the notion of resident care, safety, and caregiver alerts to a whole new level. In passive health monitoring, AI is employed to gather and analyze information on a range of health indicators. Residents do not need to activate the systems. Staff can be entirely hands-off until an alert is registered. Just as information is collected automatically, AI software uses it to continuously create a dynamic picture of a resident’s vital information, analyzing data over time in order to learn the patterns indicative of wellness and those that may signify potential danger.

Given the powerful potential of this technology, there are many benefits to the resident, staff, family, and operators. However, the biggest win may very well be better clinical outcomes. With its potential for preventive care, passive monitoring offers the possibility of keeping residents out of the hospital and helping them to remain independent in their residences for longer.
