Is Your LTC Community Compliant?

September 21, 2021

In our experience working with hundreds of senior living communities across Canada, we’ve discovered how common it is for software applications to not fully integrate with each other. Software that does not integrate seamlessly with a community’s electronic health record (EHR) system results in data silos that make it difficult to retrieve information for reporting. When you add that 90% of communities’ resident data is inaccurate, outdated, or incomplete, you get a large margin for error that may result in long-term care communities being found non-compliant.

An integrated resident experience platform is your teams’ simplest solution for compliance management. Software integration provides value for your entire organization. Read on to discover how integration can ensure your communities’ compliance and modernize your teams’ recreation data and processes.

Ensure Compliance

Data stored across multiple platforms is difficult to retrieve and often inaccurate. When you replace outmoded systems with a fully integrated platform, you enable your teams to access accurate data and submit reports in a timely manner.

Ensure your communities’ assessments are always up to date, accurate, and complete. Enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing that your communities are in compliance with government regulations. 

Create One Source of Truth

Your resident records may be inconsistent between platforms or locked away in data silos where they are not accessible to the whole team. Software integration creates data consistency across all departments and gives your teams one source of truth to look to.

Integration ensures that your resident records are up to date on all systems and improves communication between departments. Allow your teams to keep important resident information and community objectives close at hand for improved recreation processes. 

Reduce Administrative Burden

The McKinsey Global Institute found that professionals spend one day a week gathering information needed to do their jobs. Time-consuming processes include bouncing around many different tools, manually moving data between them, constantly logging in and out, and dealing with unnecessary admin.

When important information is kept in one place, staff can quickly and easily find the data they need for an optimized workflow. Integration also alleviates your staff from updating multiple systems with the same data. Give your staff more time to spend with residents and less time completing lengthy administrative tasks for happier, healthier, and safer communities.
