What is missing from compliance

ALF Software Solutions

The integration for a “smart” software system that will allow and promote compliance in a fast pace industry is completely absent from the Long-Term Care Community, especially Assisted Living. The ongoing and constant need to have records updated and communicated to a vast number of providers on the daily basis is required in order to keep the operators in business.

Marrying a software with a group of providers whose age, background and literacy varies broadly has not been found until eData Platform was introduced to the South Florida market. ALF Software Solutions that can be used for facilities ranging from few beds to large number of beds have been unheard of before.

According to Senior Living and the Affordable Act, April 2015 edition, technology, increasingly, plays a crucial role in delivering senior health and wellness services, as well as providing data that organizations need as they discuss opportunities to collaborate with other providers along the care continuum. A growing number of Senior Care Facilities are incorporating technology that enables caregivers to monitor real-time changes in daily activities and detect symptoms in residents who might not be able to report those symptoms themselves. The benefits range from lower rates of hospitalization to increased lengths of stay to the potential for increased revenue through additional services. These systems can even be life-saving, especially for the memory-impaired and other frail patients.

There are more than 28,000 assisted living residences in the U.S., housing more than one million people, according to the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), In the South Florida area, we have over 1,500 active operators who are dependent on paper and pencil when the rest of the world is relying more and more on electronics to save time.

The fear of using something that moves faster than a thought scares many of the small and mid-size operators in South Florida. However, their fines average anywhere from $3,000.00 to $10,000 dollars within a bi-ennial period. For this reason, they are slowly giving to the use eData Platform which is very user friendly. It has captured the means in a very user-friendly way to convert paper and pencil into touch button. This has seemingly reduced the fear of using an ALF Software Solution that will result in a more comprehensive system. Most favored is the vast potential for reducing fines which will lead to increasing profits for the provider.
