RCare is the first company to introduce a smartphone solution for their nurse call system.  Currently patent-pending, RCare Mobile revolutionizes the elder care market.  In 2015, the European Patent Office reported that no other tech sector submitted as many patent applications globally as the medical technology field.  Trine Bjerregaard Nyvang, the COO of Cekura, said, “We are pleased to offer RCare technology to our senior housing clients in Denmark. We have a reputation of implementing the latest and greatest in innovative and comprehensive technology, which made RCare’s Nurse Call, PERS and Proximity Location protocol the obvious choice.”  The elder care market is growing exponentially across the world and RCare promises to be at the forefront of this surge.

 

RCare Mobile provides caregivers with two-way communication, complete information, and the unique “I Got It” function that makes sure every call is answered, and without duplicate effort.  After recently expanding to Canada, Malaysia, and Denmark; MEDICA 2016 provided the perfect stage for RCare to show why they are the world’s most advanced nurse call system.  RCare met with representatives from 22 countries with a high degree of interest in representing RCare as a distributor.  Myron Kowal, President/CEO of RCare, says, “European demographics in elder populations far exceeds that of the US in terms of percentage of population.  Although culturally, families have been taking care of elderly in their own homes, the numbers will necessitate the use of modern technology just to keep up with demand.”

If your senior housing or long-term care organization uses PointClickCare, you’re probably attending the annual user PointClickCare Summit in Orlando next week.

PointClickCare SUMMIT is fast becoming recognized as one of the premiere events in the senior care industry.
This year, more than 1,300 attendees will join for what promises to be the most amazing SUMMIT yet. See the full agenda and list of exhibitors here

PCC Summit is the best way to learn about the newest and most innovative technologies and practices surrounding this industry-leading electronic health records system. We’re going to be there. Because this year we are one of those new and innovative things. We’re redefining what wireless nurse call systems are and teaching the world that outdated pager systems are a thing of the past. Come see us at booth 507.

You may have also heard that RCare has integrated with PCC. What does that mean, exactly? When your caregiver responds to a nurse call activation, they have a lot of information on hand. Thanks to RCare Mobile, they know the resident’s name, see their picture, and know about their personal needs and preferences.

But residents come and go in every community. And they change rooms. We can be certain that your caregiver is responding to the correct room number. But are we positive that it’s still Mary Smith with mobility issues in that room? The lag between resident location changes in PCC and the corresponding change in other databases creates room for doubt. With our new integration, those changes are immediately synced from PCC to RCare, so your staff will always know who is calling for help and what their specific needs are.

This integration not only gives you the best, most accurate information when you’re responding to a call, it also streamlines administrative work for your staff. Resident room change data need only be entered once instead of twice. The syncing happens automatically.

Technology integration may seem like a nerdy subject of little interest to caregivers, but we disagree. Because this kind of nerdy stuff ensures that your caregivers show up at the right room–with the right information–every time. It saves the caregiving staff time, eliminates duplicate efforts, makes staff more efficient and makes everything run more efficiently. We know that matters to everyone.

You already know that RCare’s nurse call systems have been leading the industry with innovative technology, unparalleled user-friendliness, and HIPAA-compliant secure dedicated smarter phones call the RPhone. And now it just got better with our Point-Click-Care seamless integration.

Stop by and see our latest and greatest offerings at booth 507. The world’s most advanced nurse call system is calling. It’s time to respond.
