[Recap] What We Heard at HealthTAC East 2022

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Thu, Apr 07, 2022 @ 02:07 PM

Last week our team connected with leaders from aging services communities at HealthTAC East. The two-day idea exchange, which included thought-provoking speakers and provider-vendor meetings, produced discussion around these key themes:

  • Innovation and technology 
  • Staff shortages and retention
  • Resident wellness and engagement for growth, satisfaction, and occupancy
  • Marketing strategies to attract more residents

If you missed it, catch up with us for recommended strategies and how our technologies can help. 

Innovation and technology

As a leading data warehouse, application provider, and IT services company in senior care, we are here to support you in the efficiencies to be gained with technology. Relying on nearly two decades of experience and feedback from innovative senior care operators who rely on us, we have the solutions and partnerships to provide you with end-to-end technology.

Staff shortages and retention

When staff is short, you need instant access to your current staffing and census data to manage the financial impact, as well as how it might impact your Five Star rating. Our primeVIEW KPI analytics dashboard serves up the data you care about, simplified.

Resident wellness and engagement

According to the IN2L annual report, "86% of senior living leaders using engagement technology said that it was either “very” or “extremely” important, a 10% increase year over year. And 65% of respondents said that engagement technology delivers a clear return on investment."

We agree, which is why we are bridging gaps in bandwidth and helpdesk availability for communities that wisely invest in engagement solutions. Ask us about our primeCLOUD IT services suite. Why? Because IT just works!

Attracting more residents

Once again, our primeVIEW analytics app is the hero you need. With real-time visibility into comings/goings – as well as the 'whys,' you can think strategically about when and how best to fill vacancies. We also have CRM integration on our radar, with Enquire Solutions slated as our first partner to come on board. 

The Short of It

We attend the industry's top events to track the trends and topics most important to operating an aging services organization. What we learn is incorporated into the continuous enhancements we make to the applications and technologies. We heard the demands loud and clear at HealthTAC East and we confirmed our solutions are on target to serve your needs. 

Let's Talk
