Over the last decade, the Long Term Care (LTC) arena has witnessed significant changes, which can be attributed to the continuous evolution of technology applications in the healthcare space. In light of this development, LTC today has to align its operations with the shift in resident expectations, which are driven by the level of comfort and sophistication. As a result, owners of care facilities are turning to technology to satisfy the new requirements of their patients efficiently and cost-effectively.
For instance, by deploying mobile kiosks, healthcare providers are reducing the costs of setting up nursing stations that need to be staffed with nurses 24/7. At the same time, in order to improve care, LTC communities are implementing middleware software to send alerts from disparate systems, such as resident wandering systems, security, fire alarm, temperature monitor to a single mobile device. In this way, the overall LTC space is transforming its legacy systems-based approach to care into a highly tech-driven and seamless experience for both, the patients and healthcare professionals.
