Technology is an ever-changing, ever-growing part of business. If you operate a skilled nursing facility, you may be experiencing problems that are impacting your care and growth.

Have you ever experienced:

  • A day where employees wasted time on computer problems rather than doing the jobs they were hired to perform?
  • Losing data that took hours to replace, only to discover it was still compromised?
  • Or maybe your current technology is holding you back - you know it - but you don’t know what to do about it. And frankly, you don’t have the time to find and implement a new solution throughout your organization.

Any one of them could have you scrambling for technology solutions. Multiple issues might have you pushing the whole thing aside - why worry about one thing when so many are broken?

There is a solution. It starts with developing a plan.

The Changing Landscape of Skilled Nursing

Technology is changing. Just to throw a few numbers out there, it’s estimated that 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created each day. By 2025, there will be 38.6 billion Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices worldwide, up from 16.6 billion in 2018.

Still wondering why you sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed?

As we move forward with healthcare and innovation, it is crucial for skilled nursing facilities to comprehend and embrace the changes that come with this level of change. You may be contemplating:

Embracing Digital Advancements

The days of relying solely on traditional healthcare practices are fading, making way for a new era where technology acts as a catalyst for improved patient care, streamlined administrative processes, and heightened overall efficiency. From electronic health records (EHR) to advanced monitoring systems, the tools available to skilled nursing facilities are more sophisticated than ever before.

Enhanced Patient-Centric Care

The focus on patient-centric care has taken center stage, and technology plays a pivotal role in this shift. Integrated systems allow seamless communication between healthcare professionals, ensuring patient information is readily available and facilitating collaborative decision-making. Real-time monitoring and telehealth solutions further extend the reach of healthcare services, providing a more holistic and responsive approach to patient care.

Data-Driven Insights

The influx of data in healthcare is staggering, and skilled nursing facilities are leveraging this wealth of information to gain insights that were once unimaginable. Data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) are being utilized to predict patient outcomes, optimize treatment plans, and identify trends to inform more effective care strategies. This data-driven approach not only enhances patient outcomes but also contributes to the facility's ability to make informed operational decisions.

Regulatory Compliance and Security Measures

With the integration of technology comes an increased focus on regulatory compliance and data security. Skilled nursing facilities are navigating a landscape of evolving healthcare regulations, and implementing robust IT solutions becomes crucial in ensuring compliance. Simultaneously, safeguarding sensitive patient information is paramount, necessitating advanced cybersecurity measures to protect against potential threats.

Now let’s talk about managing it all. It means more time in front of the computer analyzing data. It means increased risk if and when something goes wrong. It means faster turnover when your technology can’t keep up - you can no longer afford to stick with legacy systems.

But what should you do?

A Comprehensive and Proactive Approach

In the fast-evolving landscape of skilled nursing, where technology is a driving force, the need for a comprehensive and proactive IT approach has never been more critical. With the right tools and partnerships, you can develop a holistic approach that ensures the seamless integration and proactive management of technology within skilled nursing facilities.
