Caremerge Announces New Partnership With Life Care Services, One of the Largest Senior Living Providers in the Nation Caremerge and Life Care Services Team Up to Launch "Community Social," An Innovative Cross-Community Social Network To Increase Resident Engagement and Wellness
CHICAGO, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Caremerge LLC, a revolutionary communication and care coordination platform for the senior care industry, announced today a new partnership with Life Care Services, an LCS company, one of the nation's largest senior living service providers. As part of this new partnership, Caremerge will be launching a new solution, Community Social, with built-in staff efficiency capabilities, to be offered early adopter managed communities.
The Caremerge Community Social solution allows independent and assisted living communities to create a secure social network across multiple communities under one management entity, enabling seniors, families and staff to forge meaningful connections through an easy-to-use web and mobile platform. While it empowers staff to do more in less time – automating community activities, meals menus, resident reminders and more, it also supports residents' expectation to have an exciting life in the community. Residents can find others with common interests, create groups, schedule events, track dimensions of wellness, blog about their interests, share joys and triumphs through pictures and videos, and join forums to stay updated on various topics. Residents can also invite family members to join and interact with them and staff in one shared, secure on-line community.
"We are extremely excited to bring Community Social to the market and to be partnering with Life Care Services" said Asif Khan, Founder and CEO, Caremerge. "Not only will Community Social forge new and meaningful connections among residents, staff, and family members, but will also allow communities to eventually serve their residents holistically by tying seniors' social, behavior and wellness. By identifying trends and understanding the impact of residents' social behaviors and day-to-day activities and vice versa, communities can be more proactive about initiating appropriate and effective resident services and activities."
"At LCS we are always interested in bringing high-quality, innovative solutions to communities managed by Life Care Services," said Elizabeth Bush, Senior VP, Senior Housing Marketing and Sales, LCS. "Partnering with an award-winning technology company, like Caremerge, allows us to bring a fresh, new perspective and solution set to residents and communities. We are excited to get started with Community Social to support the lifestyle residents expect while improving operational efficiencies within the communities."
Caremerge forges meaningful connections between providers, payers, families and seniors seeking to improve communication in today's complex healthcare environment. With a revolutionary, easy-to-use cloud-based coordination platform, Caremerge keeps the entire care team informed and cohesive through an intuitive interface that enables real-time staff interaction, provides families with peace of mind and improves overall senior wellness.
Caremerge Community Social is a new addition to the existing family of revolutionary yet simple integrated enterprise solutions that the company offers. Each solution can be easily turned off or on based on each community's unique needs. This keeps costs low and impact high.
