Long-term care offers a variety of services that help meet both the medical and non-medical needs of those who have illnesses or disabilities and cannot care for themselves. Within these facilities lies an abundance of technology, which despite skepticism from residents, it plays a vital role in their lives and safety. Long-term care technology improves the efficiency of care within an establishment while also enhancing the residents’ quality of life. Here are three ways that Secure Care Products’ long-term care technologies are revolutionizing the quality and efficiency of care.
Real-Time Locating System (RTLS)
The ENVisionIT Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) is a product used in long-term care technology that helps facilities locate anyone, from staff members to residents, or anything, anywhere and at any time. Through RTLS’ hardware and software suite, facilities can maximize their operations, patient and employee satisfaction scores, and profits. It serves as an aid for cases such as:
- Asset Tracking and Management
- Community Care
- Patient Security and Monitoring
- Staff Security
The RTLS long-term care technology creates solutions within facilities to maximize operational efficiency while protecting patients, residents, and staff. Created with easy-to-use dashboards and reporting, the data collected by RTLS enables long-term care facilities to make better, more informed decisions to provide safety to patients, and improve the facility’s overall performance. RTLS has revolutionized long-term care technology with its ability to allow facilities to receive alerts as soon as patients or residents put themselves in or near restricted areas. This software can also help identify where staff members are spending their time for scheduling and billing purposes, and it can track and analyze assets used in order to better plan for right-sized inventory.
DoorGUARDIAN Wandering Resident Solution
The decision to enroll a family member in a long-term care facility is always a difficult one to make. It’s hard to put your trust in the hands of a stranger when it comes to the care and wellbeing of your loved one, especially if they are wander-prone. Fortunately, with Secure Care’s Evolution series DoorGUARDIAN Wandering Resident Solution, families can feel at ease. This next-generation long-term care technology helps monitor wandering residents or high-risk patients, while maintaining their dignity to move freely about a facility. When a resident attempts to leave a predetermined area, this solution will secure, lock, and alarm specific doors. The staff will then be notified through an alarm or automatic trigger alert that tracks the exact location of the wander-prone resident. You can take immediate action to protect residents or patients through notifications received via the mVision mobile app. The DoorGUARDIAN Wandering Resident Solution is the first wireless wander management solution on the market and can be found in thousands of facilities today. This solution has revolutionized long-term care technology through its ability to create a facility-wide solution capable of identifying specific residents and providing centralized alerts, alarms, and reporting.
mVision Mobile App
The mVision Mobile App is revolutionizing long-term care technology with its ability to allow facilities to receive vital information about alarms and alerts directly through a mobile device. As soon as an event happens, messages and alerts are sent to the individuals devices, eliminating the need for personnel to be tied to a primary computer or nurse station. The mVision technology is also provides a photo of the patient or staff that needs assistance ensuring a quick response when it is critical. This long-term care technology is beneficial in facilities where patients and staff are constantly shifting, as well as environments where workforce turnover is particularly high.
