Replacing Siloed Software

Siloed software systems often pose major challenges for senior living operators. Since they require navigating various platforms and manually transferring data, these systems waste valuable time, increase the risk of errors and place a burden on your staff. The Yardi Senior Living Suite, on the other hand, is an all-in-one, interconnected solution that unites financials, care, business intelligence and more on a single platform. With one integrated software solution, you unlock everything you need — all in one place. Why make the switch to a single connected solution? If you’ve used disconnected software tools, you’ve likely experienced the frustration of data-entry errors, time wasted digging for answers and the hassle of transferring information from one system to the next. That’s because disparate tools seldom speak to each other as efficiently as single-stack solutions do (or often, they don’t speak to each other at all). Not to mention, siloed systems aren’t necessarily as cost-effective as one fully integrated platform. They usually require varying licensing fees, plus you face the costs associated with maintaining and upgrading each individual system. With a single connected solution like the Yardi Senior Living Suite, you alleviate these challenges, risks and frustrations by accessing every tool needed in one secure place. You empower your teams with an intuitive, easy-to-access platform — all while improving care and enhancing efficiency. What makes the Yardi Senior Living Suite an unmatched solution? The Yardi Senior Living Suite offers more than your average solution. Uniquely designed to meet the needs of senior living operators, the suite of integrated tools is hosted on a cloud-based, HIPAA and SOX-compliant platform. These tools support the full spectrum of senior living — from assisted living to CCRCs to value-based care. We also place a strong emphasis on taking care of our clients and driving growth year-round, which results in a platform that’s ever-evolving, cutting-edge and built to help you succeed for the long term. We’re proud to be a Forbes Cloud 100 software provider supporting our clients for 40+ years.

Perspectives on Closing Tech Gaps

We’ve reached the conclusion of our senior living blog series, where we share our perspectives on themes from Argentum’s recent technology survey. Argentum conducted the survey to assess where operators’ priorities lie when it comes to technology — and explore what innovations are needed to meet their expectations.   Four key themes emerged from the report, including today’s theme, the fourth and final: urgency to close technology gaps. In short, operators are recognizing that given the evolving state of the industry, it’s time to accelerate technology innovation and adoption. We share more of the survey findings below and give a highlight of how our ever-evolving single connected solution is built to meet every need. Urgency to close technology gaps According to Argentum’s research, operators recognize that technology innovation is needed to keep up with industry shifts. From staffing challenges to navigating a new generation of residents, senior living communities are constantly navigating something new.   When asked what innovation is needed in the tech space, survey respondents noted they’re seeking the following: solutions designed for the unique needs of senior living. And taking that a step further, they’re supportive of co-innovating with technology companies to create such solutions. 80% of respondents shared this sentiment.

Perspectives on Filling Tech Voids

Continuing our senior living blog series, we’re breaking down the next theme in Argentum’s recent technology survey — filling the technology void. This theme was inspired by the following: When asked what’s needed to improve resident health management, survey respondents claimed it’s better collaboration in the industry, investment in technology to support data sharing and a widespread adoption of electronic health record systems (EHRs). We take a closer look below, sharing more on Argentum’s findings — and covering how our senior living  technology can lend a helping hand. Filling the technology void What’s needed to achieve comprehensive health management in the senior living industry? According to Argentum’s findings, roughly 61% of respondents claimed it’s “partnerships and collaboration between health care systems and providers.” Collaboration was closely followed by investment in new technology to support data sharing and analytics (according to 58.06% of respondents) — and widespread adoption of EHRs (51.61% of respondents). Respondents also shared that when vetting technology solutions, having resources that show demonstratable return on investment (ROI) is needed. See how our senior living technology can help As a longstanding provider of care solutions in senior living, we recognize the importance of everything operators shared in Argentum’s survey. We continuously focus on the needs of the industry when evolving our technology, including Yardi EHR — our full-service electronic health record solution. Not only is Yardi EHR a leading solution built to help operators simplify record keeping, streamline caregiver tasks and more, it’s also an interoperable platform — meaning it connects with verified interface partners to exchange comprehensive data. Everything is automatic and seamless, with data flowing to and from Yardi EHR in real time. Speaking to the Argentum survey results, our interoperable partnership with Kno2 is a key avenue for collaborating with health care systems. Kno2 is a health information platform that offers access to unlimited cloud faxing, direct secure messaging and referral networks. In essence, you can connect Yardi EHR to all outside providers, HIEs and health systems via Kno2 — enabling better visibility and resident health management. Learn more about our interoperability initiatives and partnership with Kno2. Looking at additional ways Yardi EHR supports data sharing and improving resident health outcomes, it’s important to note the platform’s integration with Senior IQ, our dynamic business intelligence solution. Thanks to the seamless connection between these two systems — which unite on a single platform — our clients have access to real-time clinical data. Clinical data is drawn directly from Yardi EHR and presented via intuitive dashboards in Senior IQ, making it easy to track clinical trends, identify residents at risk, pinpoint problems and improve protocols.

Perspectives on Driving Tech Adoption

We’re back for part two of our senior living blog series, where we share our perspectives on themes from Argentum’s recent technology survey. So far, we’ve covered the survey results and our take on silo-busting (replacing disparate systems with integrated, interoperable software). Today’s post is all about the next theme: Capital to drive technology adoption. In short, operators currently see limited capital as a barrier to adopting integrated technology — but their appetite for adoption is strong. And when asked what’s most important when vetting new solutions, their answer was simple: proven return on investment (ROI). Read on as we delve deeper into the survey results — and share how the Yardi Senior Living Suite offers maximum ROI. Capital to drive technology adoption: The importance of ROI For today’s operators, financial constraints act as barriers to adoption, deployment and effective utilization of integrated technology solutions. This was agreed upon by more than 50% of survey respondents, according to Argentum. That said, operators are confident that moving forward with integrated technology is crucial. They require proven ROI, though, when evaluating potential solutions. Nearly two-thirds of survey respondents deemed ROI as critical when vetting new software. Respondents also shared their priority “shopping list” in the search for integrated technology. This included integrating outcome data and health records, as well as building out a comprehensive data infrastructure for analytics. See how the Yardi Senior Living Suite optimizes ROI Plain and simple, by uniting every solution you need on a single integrated platform, the Yardi Senior Living Suite maximizes your ROI. You eliminate the need to license disparate software systems — which lowers your total cost of ownership and offers added benefits like time savings, prevention of data-entry errors, streamlined workflows and more. As it relates to the Argentum survey, here’s a glimpse of key integrations within the Yardi Senior Living Suite — all of which offer unmatched ROI: Yardi Voyager Senior Housing and RentCafe Senior CRM: access readily updated unit availability, create electronic leases with ease and utilize a comprehensive leasing workflow. Yardi Voyager Senior Housing and Yardi EHR: capture all care cost data — and view changes in care instantly — in one secure place. RentCafe Senior CRM and Yardi EHR: enjoy a database that centralizes the entire resident story through their prospect-to-resident journey, equipping caregivers to streamline assessments. Yardi EHR, eMAR and pharmacies: optimize orders by facilitating seamless communication between caregivers and pharmacy partners. Yardi Senior IQ and all of the above: unlock a business intelligence solution that automatically collects data from tools across the Senior Living Suite, including outcome data related to CRM and EHR, as well as financial analytics. Hear from Yardi clients, connect with our team We know proven ROI is what operators need most, so we invite you to reach out to our senior living team. We’ll give you a personalized, in-depth demo of our solutions to show exactly how they maximize your ROI. In the meantime, our fantastic clients can speak to their experience with our solutions.

Perspectives on Silo-Busting

According to a recent Argentum survey, today’s senior living organizations recognize the need for integrated, interoperable software.   Argentum — a leading association serving companies that own, operate and support senior living communities — conducted the survey to assess where operators’ priorities lie when it comes to technology. Four key themes (including the importance of “silo-busting” and the need for integrated technology) emerged from the report. We’re all about keeping the pulse on the senior living landscape, so we’re releasing a blog series that delves into each theme. And as a leading provider of senior living management software, we’re sharing our perspectives along the way. Read on for our perspectives on the first theme — silo-busting — and stay tuned for the posts to come.   Silo-busting: The power of integration and interoperability As Argentum puts it, cohesive and integrated technology solutions are needed more than ever in the senior living industry. Among survey respondents, there was near unanimous consent on this — with majority calling attention to the need for silo-busting. Respondents also shared the barriers they see in getting there, citing the industry’s struggle with software incompatibility, lack of interoperability and resistance to change. Argentum notes how the call for silo-busting goes beyond reaching smoother operations in senior living communities. At its core, it’s a “strategic imperative for achieving comprehensive resident health management, which is critical for future participation in value-based care.” The survey respondents shed light on this, with only 23.5% stating they have a comprehensive view of resident health outcomes with their current technology. Meet our fully integrated solution We agree that senior living software needs the power of integration and interoperability. Both are needed to effectively centralize resident health data, promote accuracy, enhance care services and more. We prioritize both in the Yardi Senior Living Suite, our single connected solution that unites every tool you need in one place. Uniquely designed to meet the needs of senior living operators, the suite of integrated tools is hosted on a HIPAA and SOX-compliant platform. That includes financials, care, pharmacy, marketing, business intelligence and more. With Yardi, you say goodbye to the challenges associated with siloed solutions — and reap the benefits of working with the industry’s most trusted cloud provider. More specifically, when you partake in silo-busting and implement a fully integrated solution like ours, you’re equipped to save time, reduce costs, prevent errors, streamline operations and most importantly, improve resident care outcomes. Learn more about the value of integrated tools in the Yardi Senior Living Suite. Explore our interoperable platform We’ve covered that our solutions unite on a single platform, but what about seamless data exchange between information systems? On the care side we have Yardi EHR, our interoperable electronic health record solution, which channels interoperability through a range of verified interface partners. That means comprehensive data automatically flows to and from Yardi EHR in real time. Our partnership with Kno2 — a leading health information platform — allows you to seamlessly connect Yardi EHR to all outside providers, HIEs and health systems. And depending on your license, additional features may include Kno2-to-Kno2 messaging, online identity verification, Kno2 and national provider directories, message handling, unstructured document quality control tools and more. The connection between Yardi EHR and Kno2 ultimately aligns with value-based care initiatives — and offers you better visibility into residents’ overall health management. Additional health interfaces supported by Yardi EHR include a nurse call system, dietary management platform, infection control solution and more. Learn more about the power of interoperability in Yardi EHR. Get in touch with us We encourage you to read more of Argentum’s report and check out the next post in our series.

See The Power of Interoperability

Interoperable electronic health records (EHRs) provide immense value in senior living, especially when you’re utilizing an all-in-one solution like Yardi EHR. By offering every feature you need on a single platform — and channeling interoperability via verified interface partners — Yardi EHR provides more value than your average platform. Read on to discover more about how interoperable EHRs work (and see what makes Yardi EHR stand out from the crowd). What is interoperability? Interoperability allows information systems to seamlessly exchange data with one another. In senior living, interoperable EHRs help you access real-time health information, save time, mitigate errors, support resident safety and more. Are EHRs different from EMRs? It’s important to recognize the distinction between EHRs and EMRs when discussing interoperability, so here’s a breakdown of the difference: An electronic health record such as Yardi EHR is a digital record of a resident’s chart — plus much more — stored in a dynamic online platform. EHRs connect all aspects of care by allowing multiple providers to access real-time resident data, submit updates and communicate from anywhere. An electronic medical record, on the other hand, is a digital record of a resident’s chart stored in a computer and accessible by a single provider. What makes Yardi EHR an interoperable platform? Yardi EHR is our single-stack solution that helps senior living operators deliver the best care, all from one secure platform. It unlocks the power of interoperability through a range of verified interface partners, meaning comprehensive data automatically flows to and from Yardi EHR in real time. Our support teams also actively monitor the platform, ensuring the highest level of accuracy. The system’s health interface partners include: Kno2 — you can connect Yardi EHR to all outside providers, HIEs and health systems via Kno2, a health information platform that offers access to unlimited cloud faxing, direct secure messaging and referral networks. Depending on your license, additional features available may include Kno2-to-Kno2 messaging, online identify verification, Kno2 and national provider directories, message handling, unstructured document QC tools and more. DS smart — you can instantly transfer EMR data (captured from supported equipment) to Yardi EHR through DS smart, a simplified connectivity solution built to capture, protect and connect resident information. Additional health interfaces supported by Yardi EHR include a nurse call system, dietary management platform, infection control solution and more. Explore all Yardi EHR interface partners here.

I go to Senior IQ, and it gives me everything on a single page — my key metrics.” Syndell Lawhon, VP of wellness at Vitality Living: “Nurses are very visual people. When they can see the numbers in a graph pulled right up in Senior IQ, it clicks so much faster. Numbers on a piece of paper are not as powerful.” Michael Bowles, project coordinator at Dial Senior Living: “Senior IQ is fantastic because it establishes orderly workflows and creates new reports from existing ones, complete with custom dashboards. Investors can get very specific information on demand without having to wait for us to send it.” Reach out to our team Ready to elevate your communities with Senior IQ?

See Brightwater’s Success

“The centralized location of all the information in the Yardi Senior Living Suite is a game changer.” That quote comes from our brand-new success story featuring Quintin King, president at Brightwater Senior Living. King joined us for an insightful interview to share Brightwater’s positive, transformative experience with Yardi Voyager Senior Housing, Senior IQ, EHR and RentCafe Senior CRM.

Read more about Brightwater’s journey and commitment to care. The challenge Brightwater used to rely on disparate technology solutions and manual processes.

The solution Brightwater chose the Yardi Senior Living Suite since it seamlessly connects every tool they need on a single platform. Teams now work smarter, faster and more efficiently with an intuitive, integrated solution hosted on the cloud. The story Since moving forward with the Yardi Senior Living Suite — which automates processes and integrates workflows — Brightwater is building success like never before.

Measure The Benefits

When you lack efficient leasing tools, turning senior living prospects into residents can be challenging. But how do you identify the best tools? Which solutions are built to last? Paper-based processes aren’t optimal due to the risk of manual errors and lost documents. Not to mention, they can be costly. Electronic leasing tools are much more efficient, especially when you opt for a fully integrated solution likes ours. With tools across the Yardi Senior Living Suite connecting on a single platform, you’re set to simplify move-in workflows, reduce expenses and make the prospect-to-resident journey seamless. To show you just how valuable electronic leasing tools are, we have a helpful cost analysis checklist in store. Learn more and get a glimpse at what the checklist offers below. What is electronic leasing? As part of an overall set of leasing tools, electronic leases are a digital version of the rental contract you already know. They replace paper leases and ancillary forms with secure, digitally stored files. But keep in mind that with the Yardi Senior Living Suite, you access more than just digital documents. We offer integrated electronic leasing tools that streamline every step of the move-in process. In short, you can easily generate custom leases in RentCafe Senior CRM, mark them for electronic signatures in RentCafe Senior Living Portal and automatically store completed documents in Voyager Senior Housing. Without electronic leases and an integrated workflow, on the other hand, you face: Perpetual operational costs Hours spent generating leases and ancillary documents Lost prospects who wish to sign forms remotely A halted sales cycle and decreased move-ins And more How to compare costs with our checklist Now that you know more about electronic leasing, we invite you to review our cost analysis checklist! It’s an intuitive...

Vitality Living Case Study...

How does Vitality Living achieve more with the Yardi Senior Living Suite? Find out in our latest case study! Featuring in-depth insights from Vitality’s chief financial officer and vice president of wellness, the resource sheds light on Vitality’s major successes with our single connected solution. Sound interesting? Explore the snapshot of Vitality’s story below. The challenge For financial accounting, Vitality used to rely on manual processes and disparate systems — taking time away from priorities, generating errors and causing confusion among teams. From monthly ACH pulls to building financial reports, key tasks became increasingly arduous. Vitality searched for a dependable, integrated solution to serve as their source of truth and alleviate the challenges they were facing. In terms of gathering data and presenting insights, Vitality also utilized manual processes — as their data was scattered across siloed solutions. Not only were these processes time-consuming, but they also prevented Vitality from unlocking insights regarding occupancy, falls and more, since data lacked the organization and presentation needed to reveal important trends. Not to mention, Vitality’s data wasn’t being updated in real time. Leaders sought a business intelligence solution that would present up-to-date, business-wide data in a visual format — all in one place. The solution After searching for a trusted technology provider known for creating integrated solutions on the cloud, Vitality began their journey with Yardi. Now, they’re driving success at every level with Voyager Senior Housing and Senior IQ. With Voyager, Vitality accesses automated accounting functions, real-time reporting and complete business oversight in one centralized location. “When you’re running a report in Voyager, you’re getting real-time data,” shared Nick Byrd, chief financial officer at Vitality. “The system is integrated with all of these pieces which allows us to get a true picture.” And thanks to...
