Argentum 2024 Senior Living Executive Conference

Heading to the Argentum’s Senior Living Executive Conference this year? So are we!

The annual conference brings together thousands of executives, operators, owners, and other professionals from the senior living industry, along with community leaders, and industry innovators like RCare, to connect and learn about industry issues and solutions. The three-day event includes networking, educational sessions, and an expo.

2024 Senior Living Executive Conference Theme: Improving the Resident Experience

The conference theme, “Improving the Resident Experience,” is a motto we stand by. RCare has been described as providing “person-centered care at its finest” and we’re proud of that. When a resident needs help, they need to know that their call was received, and that help will arrive soon

RCare Mobile’s unique “I Got It” feature improves caregiver efficiency by eliminating duplication of efforts that happens if multiple caregivers answer the same call. And it ensures that every call is answered in the time frame you determine.

Knowledge is power, and RCare’s leading-edge reporting tools put the power in your hands. What is the average response time for your community? Do you know? Is it the same for every shift and every wing? Can you measure it? Is it improving? Are you happy with it? Everyone in the community benefits when response time improves. RCare’s reporting gives you the insights you need to measure and improve performance, optimize staffing, and to detect resident and staffing issues early. The result is resident satisfaction and well-being.

Concerned about resident safety? So are we. We’ve designed our pendants to be sleek, comfortable and versatile, something residents can feel good about wearing. And with RCare’s Advanced Locating Protocol, the pendants can help you locate the resident, so help gets to them more quickly. And RCare’s check-in option is another powerful way to keep your residents safe.

Improving the Lives of Seniors and Caregivers

Since our founding in 2006, RCare has been dedicated to our mission to improve the lives of seniors and those who care for them. We take the time to understand caregiving and the unique issues facing each community, and to build customized nurse call systems that last. We believe that providing the best eldercare means putting the best technology into the hands of top caregivers. We know our systems aren’t a magic solution, but we also know that if we give caregivers innovative tools to do their best work, at a price communities can afford, residents will reap the benefits of better care.

No matter what kind of community, no matter what your size or budget, RCare can help. Visit RCare at Booth #2809 to meet RCare’s team, and learn how our innovative nurse call solutions can help your community serve your residents even better.

Join RCare at 2019 LeadingAge

LeadingAge is an enormous gathering of not-for-profit organizations across the entire field of aging services. It is designed for participants to think, to learn, to network and to grow. This year, the attendees are challenged to imagine the future of aging with the theme: “What if?”

We love this theme. RCare has always pushed the boundaries of what a nurse call system can do and we’ve continued to innovate with the phrase “what if” in mind.

What if your nurse call system could help you with resident satisfaction? What if it could help with staff retention? What if it could give you actionable data to help with QAPI? What if it could save your staff time by integrating with other systems you’re already using for wander management, door access, or records? What if it could save you money by working with your existing hardware? What if it could bring you powerful features, no matter what your size or budget?

You see, we have been thinking about this for a while. And we are inspired:

What if RCare gave you super powers? What if your response times became super response times?

This year at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo, RCare has a challenge for your community: “improve response times and improve your resident experience”.

What is the average response time for your community? Do you know? Can you measure it? Is it improving?

You can’t manage what you don’t measure.

Everyone in the community benefits when response times improve. RCare gives you the power to look at your response times and make the change. When you do, you will start to see immediate benefits.

What if we vowed to build a solution customized to your needs?

What if we made it affordable?

What if we made it an easy choice?

No matter what kind of community, no matter what your size or budget, RCare can help. Stop by Booth #1624 and talk to RCare about how RCare’s advanced nurse call systems can empower you to make big improvements in your response times. And while you’re there, take your photo and post it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #RMan or #RWoman for your chance to win great prizes.

RMan from RCare at the AHCA-NCAL Convention and Expo

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.

Are you going to the AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo in Orlando this year? Are you “ready for any challenge?” RCare is ready to provide you with the latest and greatest technologies and reporting tools to help you improve your response time. Are you ready to accept this challenge?

This industry spends countless dollars catering to residents’ needs, wants and desires. So, what do we come up with? Enhanced workout centers, bistros (OK, everybody likes bistros), golf putting greens, insides that look like the outside, fake clouds, circadian lighting, and the list goes on and on.

But we are not addressing the single most important thing we can do for residents. Improve call response times. Response times are critical to resident health, resident safety and resident satisfaction. When residents are admitted, they’re instructed to push the button or pull the cord whenever they need help. What they don’t know is that most likely it will take around 8-15 minutes for someone to respond.

When a resident needs help, they need to know that their call was received, and that help will arrive soon. Otherwise, you know what will happen: they’ll try to take care of things themselves, whether it’s getting out of bed, using the restroom, taking a shower. And, too often, that leads to falling.

What is the average response time for your community? Do you know? Is it the same for every shift? Every wing? Can you measure it? Is it improving? Are you proud of it?

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. And everyone in the community benefits when response time improves. Look at your response times and make the change. When you do, you will start to see immediate benefits.

No matter what kind of community, no matter what your size or budget, RCare can help. Stop by Booth #1512 and talk to RCare about how RCare’s advanced nurse call systems can empower you to make big improvements in your response times. And while you’re there, take your photo and post it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #RMan or #RWoman for your chance to win great prizes.

RCare brews strong QAPI at the Quality Summit

What’s Brewing at the Quality Summit? QAPI.
Do you like your QAPI Strong? RCare can help.

Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) are on everyone’s minds these days. Because of new CMS regulations, QAPI is the latest watchword in long-term care and skilled nursing facilities across the country. No doubt your senior community already has an implementation strategy in place for moving forward. But here’s something you may not have realized: Your nurse call system can play an important role in the success of your QAPI program.

RCare is the global provider of advanced, wireless nurse call systems. We’ve designed our nurse call systems to give you the tools you need for your QAPI program. Why are so many communities overlooking the value of nurse call systems for QAPI? It might be because they’re not using RCare.

RCare brews strong QAPI at the Quality SummitNext week RCare will be in New Orleans at the AHCA/NCAL Quality Summit, to show you how the right nurse call system can help you strengthen your QAPI program.

When a resident pulls a cord or pushes a button on their PERS pendant, your caregiving staff responds. Are any calls missed? How quickly does your staff respond? How accurate and complete is their information when they arrive? Right from the start of an incident, RCare can help you improve resident satisfaction and the quality of care. And right from the start of an incident, RCare can help you gather accurate, actionable data.

The Quality Summit is the third annual gathering of long-term and post-acute care quality leaders. For three days they’ll be learning best practices, networking with other professionals, and educating themselves about the latest issues in quality and compliance for skilled nursing, post-acute, and assisted living providers.

RCare will be the only Nurse Call System provider at the summit.

Stop by our table, have a cup of coffee on us, and let us show you how your nurse call system can help with QAPI.

In your job, there’s a lot expected of you. You should expect a lot from your nurse call system. RCare offers the most advanced wireless nurse call technology, for large or small facilities. RCare wants to join efforts and support you as you develop your QAPI program.

Meet RCare’s latest teammate: Mr Gary Jones.
Gary Jones
Sha la, la, la, la, la, la….

 

Please join us in welcoming Gary Jones to the RCare team. He is our new Director of National Sales and he’s a perfect addition to the RCare staff.

Gary JonesWe have to be honest, we couldn’t help trying to get Mr. Jones to “strike up a conversation.” It wasn’t hard to get him talking. He’s an incredibly smart, compassionate, friendly and personable guy. It was an obvious choice that he had the perfect mix of sales, technology and healthcare experience to be a great fit to our crew. Not to mention, he’s a swell guy who strongly believes in the RCare mission and vision.

He comes to us with a wide background in sales, technology, and health care. Before coming to RCare, Gary worked for the American Heart Association as the Director of Business Development & Corporate Relations. He has also worked for Asus, and the University of Rochester.

Gary attended Cornell University, and graduated with a degree in Biology. At Cornell, he competed on the Division I Track & Field team, where he was a Triple Jump champion. He is an Olympic Trials qualifier in that event as well.

So prepare to be amazed when you say “jump” and he says “how high?”

But Gary is not just about sales, healthcare and technology. In his spare time, he competes in CrossFit competitions around the country. He loves to travel, especially with his fiancée, Sarah. His favorite destination so far is Cairo, Egypt. Even though Mr. Gary Jones has admitted that he doesn’t know any “black-haired flamenco dancers,” we do know that he’s gonna be a big star.

Gary Jones

If you’re going to be on the road, you may have a chance to meet Gary. He’s going to be at HealthTAC in Nashville later this week. You’ll also find Gary at PEAK Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. He’ll bring along our March 2017 catalog, which showcases all of our advanced nurse call solutions. We’ll also debut brand new products such as the BCube. The BCube offers all of the advanced features and technologies of our flagship nurse call solutions, but is designed, priced and scaled for smaller senior campuses.

Stop by and introduce yourself. We like Gary. We think you’ll like him, too. And trust us, Mr Jones is not only funky, but we know he really is gonna be a big, big star.

Best Little Nurse Call System

LTC/CXO Summit interviews Myron KowalRCare is delighted to be selected as a solution provider for the revolutionary LTC/CXO summit, an invitation-only forum for senior level executives and solution providers.

RCare CEO Myron Kowal featured on an interview by LTC/CXO:

We’ve got some BIG news to announce at the LTC and Senior Living CXO Summit (LTC/CXO) in Pasadena. We will be introducing our all new, revolutionary BCube platform designed specifically for small campuses. Using all of the BIG monitoring, sensing and reporting features of RCare, the BCube is a more cost-effective, efficient and scaled design.

What makes the BCube so exciting?

It’s a big-featured nurse call system scaled and priced for small communities. Advanced wireless nurse call systems like RCare Mobile are comprehensive and robust, designed (and priced) for large skilled nursing and assisted living communities. With their smaller budgets, we’ve seen that smaller communities are often priced out of the market for the new technologies that make caregiving safer for the resident, and more efficient for the staff. So we went back to the design table and came up with a way to give you the great features of our bigger nurse call systems, at a smaller price. All of the big capabilities, without the big price tag.

What else is new at LTC/CXO? We’ll be sharing our revolutionary new technologies that make RCare the leading advanced nurse call system across the world. We will talk about our recent integrations with EMR giant PointClickCare, wander management leader Accutech and telehealth and socialization platform GrandCare Systems. We’ll be showcasing our custom-made, HIPAA-compliant RPhone handsets powered by RCare Mobile to ensure communications are fast, descriptive and secure. We are also showing off our new sleek Pretty Pretty and Patriot Pendants. These beautiful accessories are designed for ultimate functionality with elegant style.

LTC/CXO is being held February 9-10, 2017, at The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, CA.

“The Summits have opened up new projects and our meetings have resulted in sales. We get at least two clients from each event,” said Myron Kowal, President, Response Care, a solution provider at marcus evans LTC & Senior Living CXO Summits.

untitled-1How many new clients does each Summit lead to?
We get at least two clients from each event. We continue to build our relationships to explore new opportunities.
All of our sales go through distributors, so although our marketing and sales efforts happen here, once they become projects we hand them over to one of our 48 distributors in the US to carry out.
It is difficult to draw straight lines between meetings and deals, so we could have closed more business as a result of our one-on-one meetings than we know.

Could you have met these companies if you had not attended a marcus evans Summit?
They are new opportunities. Perhaps I would have eventually met these companies, but by the time that happened, they may have chosen another product over ours.

How effective is the one-on-one meeting format?
It is terrific. In most cases, the executives we are paired with have a myron-headshotgenuine interest in our product and what we have to say, and their level of influence on the buying process is significant.
