When Tim Buchanan and I, along with a team of accomplished senior living professionals, set out to build the first web-based senior living software solution specifically for ALF, we did so with the goal of delivering an assisted living software solution that met a few simple goals. Vitals had to be…
First and foremost, the product had to be useful. Meaning, staff needed to be able to use it efficiently and effectively without it adding to their already heavy workloads. This was the only way we were going to effectively capture the data needed to help drive business success. Leads needed to go in quickly, follow-up needed to flow out efficiently, assessments needed to be easy to perform, billing needed to take far less time, etc. etc.
Next it had to be flexible. It had to connect with other apps our clients were using (i.e. Accounting, Lead Referral, Maintenance, eMAR, Care Tracking, etc). It had to adapt to specific regulatory dynamics and evolve with changing marketplace conditions.
It had to have purpose; not just be another tool burdening the staff. It needed to reduce administrative burdens. It had to truly drive business success. For 20 years, the data tells us that this is precisely what has happened. Our customers experience consistent occupancy gains, reduced staff turnover, increased revenue & profits, timely assessments and compliance and more.
Ultimately, it had to drive profits. Tools that don’t ultimately achieve this are great ways to go broke faster. All too often, we’re approached by clients that are looking first to solve overhead challenges (care tracking, accounting, maintenance) while occupancy and pipeline management wane. While these are important areas to address, if occupancy and revenues are down, it makes the stress of addressing these other areas even more so.
So I guess in short this is a thank you. For those of you that have chosen our solution, thank you for the opportunity to serve you. For those of you evaluating options, let us know how we can help. To each of you, thank you for all you do to enrich the lives of the residents and families you serve. If there's anything we can do to make that easier, more enjoyable or and a bit more profitable, please let us know.
