RCare touted by McKnight’s Senior Living as innovative and robust solution

RCare touted by McKnight’s Senior Living as innovative and robust solution

McKnight’s Senior Living recently featured RCare in an article about innovative technologies that are improving care in senior communities. Called the “Strong, Silent Type,” the article focuses on the importance of resident comfort, safety and peace of mind. And it addresses the challenge of providing that security discreetly, and with respect for the dignity and independence of the residents.

How do communities accomplish this? And how do they manage it without burning out their staff with unrealistic expectations? The article had some very specific suggestions for technology and innovative industry leaders, including RCare. The innovations highlighted by the article help raise the level of care in senior living communities by offering comfort, safety and peace of mind, while preserving the independence and autonomy of the residents.

RCare's GeoPendant in McKnight's Senior LivingThe article spotlighted the RCare GeoPendant as an excellent example of a product that lets caregivers custom-define safe zones for residents who need them. “Seniors can move about the community freely, but if they move outside an individually customized safety zone, a discreet alert can be sent to specified caregivers.” This is especially important in mixed communities, where not all residents have the same needs, and the needs of any resident may change over time. “Because residents’ security and care needs differ and will continue evolving over time, security solutions providers also must develop flexible products to meet those changes.”

In fact, the GeoPendant was designed for mixed communities. It allows care staff to use the right tool for individual residents who can benefit from it. Meanwhile, it helps reduce the problem of alarm fatigue, an issue the article points out is becoming an increasing concern for communities. By integrating a wide variety of devices with their nurse call system, RCare avoids loud alarms, and instead alerts are sent to caregivers quietly, discreetly, and efficiently.

RCare’s GeoPendant allows operators to define customized areas that are safe for a resident, without using walls and locked doors.

The article also addressed the growing trend in wireless nurse call systems, and RCare is at the forefront, providing a full line of wireless systems. “Wireless solutions also continue to gain ground in the senior housing segment, a shift experts attribute to the ease of use and scalability of WiFi, which can allow operators to more easily cover their entire campuses.”

RCare RPhone in McKnight's Senior LivingAs RCare’s marketing director Mike Andolina pointed out, residents deserve privacy and health data protection. In order to be effective for communities, nurse call systems and their integrated devices also need to be HIPAA-compliant. “To help meet those requirements, RCare’s customized, locked-down RPhone offers all the key caregiver communication features needed to address resident needs, while excluding other features that could jeopardize privacy, such as camera, personal texts or social media access.” And that’s critical to communities, where HIPAA is a very real part of day-to-day operations. Communities want their staff to have the best tools available, but those tools have to meet the regulatory needs of the organization as well.

Everyone’s a winner with RCare at LeadingAge 2017. And we can prove it!

New Orleans is known for amazing food, music, and of course the renowned Mardi Gras celebrations. At the end of October, New Orleans will have a new claim to fame. It will be host to America’s largest not-for-profit aging services industry event, the LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo.

Anyone who’s anyone in aging services gathers together at LeadingAge to see the latest and greatest in senior care innovation and services, learn best practices and renew a shared passion for delivering the best possible care to seniors everywhere.

At RCare, we never miss it. And this year we’ll be at Booth 1310, showcasing our brand new RCare booth with expanded product offerings, new and improved RMetrix enterprise and analytics features for all RCare customers, and our latest “Everyone’s a Winner with RCare” Series. You see, RCare has designed product offerings and services for every single individual involved in care, whether you’re a resident, administrator, caregiver, facility manager or in charge of quality management. Our systems are designed to help everyone have the tools they need to provide the best possible care. And we can prove it.

No, they are not JUST for the kids, take a look at this McKnight’s article highlighting the advantage of Fidget Spinners for dementia residents. Plus, try for a bigger prize while finding out RCare can help you and your community.

LeadingAge 2017 RMetrix

RMetrix v2

We know that something on everyone’s minds this year is Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI). The CDC will be issuing regulations requiring skilled nursing facilities to implement a quality assurance and improvement program. At that point, the clock starts ticking, and facilities will have one year to have their programs implemented and complete. Now is the time to be getting these programs in place, and RCare knows exactly how to help satisfy all your QAPI needs.

For example, RMetrix v2 is a new reporting and analytics package that comes native with every RCare nurse call system. RMetrix provides reports and data that help communities measure how they’re doing, and assess their improvements, which is the core of QAPI. RMetrix comes with an impressive list of built-in reports that can be run for your entire facility, or by shift, by wing, by client, and more. You get the option to filter the data the way you need it. If we don’t have the report you need, the custom report designer included with RMetrix lets you create your own. Or, if you need a little help, RCare’s business analyst can custom-design reports for you, for a modest fee. RCare can help you make your QAPI program a success.

LeadingAge 2017 GeoPendantBe sure to check out our all new GeoPendant. This pendant was designed to provide residents with the flexibility and freedom to move safely around the community. Caregiving staff can define individual “safe zones”, and receive discreet alert notifications if a resident moves outside of their custom safe zone. It also serves as a push-button PERS. Location tracking lets caregivers know where the help is needed. Perfect for mixed communities, the GeoPendant is small, sleek, wireless and attractive, and it’s fully integrated with RCare’s nurse call systems.

According to the Nursing Home Data Compendium of 2015 by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, nearly half the residents of skilled nursing communities are in facilities with under 100 beds. RCare recognizes that these communities don’t require expensive, enterprise-level server hardware, but they do require the most innovative and comprehensive tools to provide the best possible care with fewer staff.

Stop by Booth 1310 to check out the BCube, designed and priced exclusively for small communities with 128 beds or fewer. Using a smaller touch-based computer server, RCare’s revolutionary BCube provides all the reporting features and advanced technology of our flagship RCube wireless nurse call system, at a fraction of the cost.

But that’s not all. We’ll be telling everyone about our brand new Durable RPhone, coming in 2018. You already know that the RPhone is a powerhouse of secure caregiver communication and notifications. What you didn’t know is that it’s now nearly indestructible. Stop by Booth 1310 for a sneak peek, and to see all the latest advancements in wireless nurse call systems.

OALA is the largest trade association for assisted living communities in the state, and prides itself on being a strong voice on all issues affecting assisted living. That’s good stuff. RCare is attending with Health Grade Networks, one of our trusted integrators. These folks are experts at implementing turnkey solutions for assisted living facilities. If you’re at OALA, stop by and say hello, and learn more about how RCare’s wireless nurse call solutions can help you with your QAPI program.

RCare Tradeshows 2017 LeadingAge GraphicA few days later, RCare is heading to New Orleans for LeadingAge 2017. The LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo is our nation’s largest annual event for the not-for-profit aging services field and we never miss it. This year, we’re launching our “Everyone’s a Winner with RCare” campaign, because no matter what your role is in a community, whether you’re a caregiver or resident, the executive director, the IT support person, or the food service director, RCare’s powerful tools will make your life better. To kick off the “Everyone’s a Winner with RCare” campaign, we have giveaways for every single person who stops by our booth. If you’re in New Orleans, be sure to stop by Booth 1310 and pick up a free Bluetooth fidget spinner, take a chance on a bigger prize, and learn more about how RCare can help customize the best solution for your community.

From New Orleans we’ll be going west to San Antonio, TX for HealthTac. This is an invitation-only event for senior executives in the healthcare industry. We love these opportunities to network, and to get to know the people who are making things happen in the senior care industry. If you’re going to HealthTAC, let’s find a time to talk.

And then from November 6 – 9 we’ll be in Kissimmee, FL for this year’s PCC Summit. RCare is integrated with PointClickCare’s EHR system because we know that time is a rare commodity in senior care. Communities using both PCC and RCare get some pretty great benefits. When you enter a resident’s data to PCC, it updates automatically in RCare. Any changes or updates to the resident record, or room changes, are automatically transferred. No duplication of effort. No lag time waiting for data entry. Decreased errors. And when you get an alert through the nurse call system, you know the data is complete and up-to-date. It’s an integration that just made sense.

How Senior Housing Campuses Can Save Lives During Heat Waves & Other Disasters

How Senior Housing Campuses Can Save Lives During Heat Waves & Other Disasters

When the outside temperature rises, it’s not only an inconvenient situation. Heat waves can be deadly to older and more vulnerable residents.

This lesson was driven home starkly in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in Florida, where nine residents died after losing power in their nursing community.

It doesn’t take a catastrophic hurricane to make heat a deadly problem for seniors. Nearly 400 Americans die from heat waves each year. “Most of them are elderly people who often don’t realize when they are overheating and in danger.” (agingcare.com)

This is an awesome responsibility that falls on senior communities, to prevent and respond to a potential temperature increase, even if the resident doesn’t realize the danger or severity of the situation.

RCare Temperature Sensors (TS9 and TS9E) to mitigate the danger of heat waves to seniors

RCare’s temperature sensors

Nurse Call Systems have come a long way in the past few decades. Caregiving staff are expected to do far more than simply respond to button and pull cord alerts. They need to be aware if a resident is in a dangerous environment, without the resident having to do anything. The technology needs to enable better, faster, and more predictive care.

That’s why RCare’s nurse call systems have gone above and beyond, to integrate passive environmental sensors, such as temperature and flood detecting sensors. RCare’s temperature devices will detect when temperatures are rising and start sending out alerts to designated caregiving team members. RCare allows for a quick intervention, before the situation becomes a crisis.

Passive sensors are an important part of a complete nurse call system. RCare is the provider of advanced wireless nurse call systems for senior communities across the senior care continuum. With the integration of temperature sensors, water sensors, and other environmental sensors, RCare provides care staff with the extra tools they need to keep seniors safe, even if the resident never pressed a button.

The Excitement Builds – Leading Us to a New Building!

The Excitement Builds – Leading Us to a New Building!

This year has been an exciting year for RCare. We keep building. Our product line, our market, our global footprint, it’s all growing and expanding. We’ve been introducing innovative new products that we think will really help our clients provide the best care possible. We’ve been hiring new staff.

The excitement builds.

And now we’re moving into a bigger facility. Want to see how things are going with our new space? Check out this video. Our CEO Myron Kowal takes you on a walk-through. As you can see, it has more office space, a bigger warehouse, and an expanded shipping area.

Building and expanding is what RCare is about. You may have heard about our new RMetrix reporting system and the BCube nurse call system for small campuses. And we’re not stopping there. We know it’s important that you have the best tools available, to help you provide the best care possible. That’s why we keep improving our products, adding new interoperability, and new features that we know you’ll love.

“When we began evaluating systems two major considerations were key – integration with our existing systems and forward thinking architecture allowing for future expansion. The RCare system and the fine folks at Sterling have time and again validated our decision.”
– Larry Lillo, Executive Director, Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Community

RCare has it all: from our high tech Geopendant to our variety of environmental sensors. We know it’s important to our customers that all the features of your system work together. That’s why we offer all the customizable components, and make sure they integrate flawlessly. From emergency transmitters and dome lights to caregiver tools and activity sensors. We have everything you need. Plus, interoperability with major technologies, such as PointClickCare records management, Accutech wander management, and GrandCare resident monitoring systems.

We’re expanding because business is booming! But don’t worry. We’re not sitting on our laurels. We keep thinking of other new products that will help you. Stay tuned for other exciting updates in the next few months!

Pioneer Network: Culture Change the RCare Way

Pioneer Network: Culture Change the RCare Way

RCare is going to the Pioneer Network annual conference later this month, and we’re extra excited this year. Why? Because this year’s focus is one of our favorite subjects: individual culture change. Nobody — caregiving staff or residents — wants their senior living community to be impersonal and institutional. We can all agree that we want a warmer, more home-like environment for each and every person. But how do you achieve it? We’re here to show how Person-Directed Culture Change can be done, the RCare Way.  

The forward-thinking Pioneer Network conference showcases all kinds of innovative best practices in the long-term care culture change movement. More than one thousand people will gather to learn, network, and inspire each other. And all of them care deeply about changing the culture of senior living.

This years theme, “Be the Future,” puts the focus on personal choice, dignity, and respect. These, as we know, are the hallmarks of self-determination and purposeful living. At RCare, these same values underlie everything we do and every product we design.

“We use the RCare system to ensure that the residents get the care and services they need at the time they need it, or as rapidly as they need it. It’s helped with accountability. It’s helped with efficiency. It’s really helped in terms of caregiver burnout. And it’s helped in terms of resident satisfaction and safety.”
– Janelle Zacho, Director of Nursing at Columbia Healthcare Center

GeoPendant

GeoPendant

Do you want your residents to retain their independence, and move freely throughout your facility, while staying safe? Check out our GeoPendant. You can custom-define the safe zones for any resident, and receive discreet alerts if the resident moves outside the zone. You can pinpoint their location and help them if they need it. Keep them safe and independent. It makes a difference.

Do you want to assure your residents and their families that calls are responded to quickly? Check out our RMetrix Reporting Package, integrated into every system we make. Supervisors can see data on response times by shift, by group and by person, to let you know how you’re doing, see patterns, and know where improvements can be made. It’s good for the care staff. And it contributes to the safety and satisfaction of the residents. It makes a difference.

RPhone

RPhone

Do you want to protect your residents privacy? With the RPhone, your staff have the best communication tools available. They’ll use locked-down smartphones to coordinate with each other, communicate with the resident, get more information, and reassure them. The system gives your staff complete information about the resident before they answer the call. You can minimize duplication of effort and ensure that no calls go unanswered with the “I got it” feature. And best of all, there is no access to the internet or social media, no cameras. It protects your your facility from the risk of privacy violations. It preserves your residents’ dignity. It makes a difference.

RCare can help you achieve positive changes in senior living. Come see us during the conference. We’d love to hear your ideas.

RCare Reporting: The Best Just Got Better

RCare Reporting: The Best Just Got Better

RCare's RMetrix v2You’ve seen the advantages of RCare’s big-time native reporting and analytics. RMetrix, the free reporting package included with all RCare Nurse Call platforms, gives you the information and call analytics you need by person, by shift, or by group. With it, you can increase efficiencies, identify trends, and improve the quality of care.

And now it just got better.

We have recognized the changing needs of our clients and we used that information to completely overhaul our reporting, customized to your needs. Introducing RMetrix v2, a revamped RCare reporting technology providing the most modern, scalable, and customizable reporting and analytics for senior housing communities with one or more sites.

Celebrating Independence with RCare

Celebrating Independence with RCare

In light of the recent celebration of Independence Day, we’ve been reflecting on the importance and meaning of independence for the birth of our country. Why is it so important? We see it in every stage of life. As kids grow up they seek and require more independence. As we age, our independence becomes even more important. We will do anything to stay more independent and empowered.

RCare's Pretty Pretty Pendant and Patriot PendantThis got us thinking, and we realized that independence is one of the foundations that underlies everything we do. More independence for residents. More independence for caregivers. More independence for administrators.

It’s why we created the Pretty Pretty Pendant and the Patriot Pendant. We know that community residents may need to call for help. And we thought, in order to have the independence and peace of mind that comes with a pendant, we needed to provide something that the resident wanted to wear. It’s a simple solution, and we’ve discovered that it makes the residents happy. And, it also makes them more likely to wear them.

RCare's GeoPendantIt’s why we created the GeoPendant. We know some residents need extra help being safe, but would like it to come without embarrassing alarms and bells. And what about those residents that don’t need those safety limits? How could we create something that could be customized, individually for each resident? The GeoPendant is a sleek push-button pendant, and it’s something more too. With the GeoPendant, caregiving staff can define safe zones for the residents that need them. That means, everyone can just go about their day. But if certain residents move outside their defined safe zone, care staff will be notified, and provided with the senior’s location, so they can offer assistance as needed.

It’s why we created environmental sensors. Community residents can rest assured they can remain safe and comfortable in their homes. Environmental sensors monitor things for the entire community. If something is wrong, for example the temperature is too low or too high, or a faucet overflows, the sensors will automatically send out an alert so that facility staff can intervene before the situation becomes an emergency.

It’s why we created the BCube, the best little nurse call system ever. We know how hard caregivers work. And we know that we can increase their independence by offering the best technology on the market. We’ve met a lot of caregivers in our line of work, and we’ve seen many working with outdated technologies, that hold them back from their goal of providing the best care possible. We realized that the most advanced nurse call systems, like our RCube, might be beyond the budgets of the smaller communities. But we think those community residents deserve the best care, and their caregivers deserve the best tools. So we sent our designers back to the drawing board to figure out how to re-engineer our best system for the little guys. And they came back with the BCube. It’s a full-featured, advanced nurse call system. But now it’s a good fit for smaller communities and their smaller budgets.

We value our independence just like our clients and their residents. We hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day. And we want you to know that, even after the parties have ended and the fireworks have been put away, we’re still here for you.
