SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the Customer Success Platform and world's #1 CRM company, today announced that Silverado -- a nationally recognized provider of home care, memory care assisted living and hospice services -- has selected Salesforce Health Cloud to create more personalized and connected care experiences. By using a single console to manage all of its care offerings, the organization will improve communication and collaboration with its residents, clients and patients, as well as create more efficient workflows enabling Silverado to help even more people living with Alzheimer's and dementia, chronic illness and those at the end of life.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 35 million people worldwide have dementia, with Alzheimer's disease the most common cause. Patients with dementia often transition between home care, assisted living and hospice -- and struggle with a fractured healthcare system that does not capture a single view of their care journey. Health Cloud will enable Silverado's associates to deliver personalized care and a seamless experience for individuals transitioning through this journey. For example, information stored in Health Cloud will give associates a central place to learn about resident and family likes and dislikes, which creates a personalized experience and seamless handoffs between members of the Silverado team.
Along with Health Cloud, Silverado plans to use Community Cloud in the future to educate family members and share real-time updates about activities happening in their care communities; Service Cloud to coordinate nursing staff visitation schedules to those who rely on at-home services; and Sales Cloud to help sales teams work more efficiently and build stronger relationships with local healthcare providers and universities.
