RCare Measures Up at HealthTAC

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- RCare Inc., creator of advanced wireless nurse call and monitoring systems, announced today that they have been selected to participate at HealthTAC in Florida where they will showcase their new Enterprise RMetrix reporting package, their HIPAA-compliant mobile RPhone, and the 3-in-1 wearable GeoPendant. HealthTAC is an invitation-only event for senior executives in the healthcare industry.

RCare will also be discussing QAPI, and the importance of building a strong quality assurance and improvement program, starting with your nurse call and reporting platform. Quality improvements are almost always data-driven, which requires a robust, flexible and advanced reporting tool. RCare recently announced Enterprise RMetrix, a brand new reporting platform. Enterprise RMetrix was designed to enhance quality assurance and performance improvement (QAPI) programs by providing real, actionable and measurable data with customized reporting features.

"Without the data, how can a senior community operator hope to make the correct choices to enhance the quality of life of residents and performance of the staff?" said RCare CEO and President, Myron Kowal. "We feel it's so important to have that critical data, so you can set baselines and measurable targets, monitor progress, and really improve your ratings. That's why we include our advanced RMetrix base platform with every RCare solution we provide."

RCare's HIPAA-compliant mobile RPhones integrate with the company's nurse call platforms. A secure device for receiving calls, the RPhone provides two-way communication, detailed incident data, and the unique "I Got It" feature, that lets staff members claim calls efficiently, reducing duplication of efforts, reducing alarm fatigue, and ensuring that every call is answered. The RPhone also allows communities to place the caregiver in the room, to capture how much time they are spending with each resident and what activities of daily living (ADL's) are being performed, a unique feature to RCare and the RPhone.

RCare will also be sporting their groundbreaking 3-in-1 GeoPendant, a unique wearable that allows caregivers to define customized "safe zone" areas for the wearer. The pendant sends customized alerts if the wearer moves out of the area, so caregivers can discreetly intervene. In addition, the pendant serves as a push-button PERS. It's also equipped with Advanced Locating Protocol, to identify the location of the resident when the call is placed. "It's great for mixed populations," explains Kowal. "You don't go from independent living to memory care overnight. The GeoPendant keeps everyone safe without unnecessary resident restriction."

The HealthTAC conference offers a wide array of products and services for purchasing decision-makers, construction, designers, and administrators for companies that furnish and run assisted and/or senior living facilities, including: flooring, lighting, casegoods for all areas, outdoor furnishings and recreational equipment, bedding, OS&E, bathroom fixtures and amenities, in-room amenities, technology, security, décor, and much much more.

HealthTAC is being held April 9th - 11th at the Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida.
