Innovative senior living provider safeguards sensitive data and mitigates risk with new electronic health care record solution
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 27, 2017 – New England-based Northbridge Companies provides quality resident care while safeguarding sensitive data with Yardi® EHR. After switching from paper documentation to electronic health care records, care staff can access resident information from a secure, centralized database hosted in the Yardi Cloud.
“Having the information in one database allows us to access it easily, which makes us more efficient and keeps our resident records safe,” said Marcia Suddy, regional director of resident care services for Northbridge Companies. A privately owned senior living provider with 15 communities serving over 1,000 residents, Northbridge Companies has been providing quality senior care for over a decade.
By using Yardi EHR to manage resident data, Northbridge Companies provides real-time health tracking and reporting to care staff while also staying compliant with HIPAA security standards. Northbridge no longer needs to rely on paper documents and physical storage space.
“I feel a lot better knowing sensitive information is being stored safely in the cloud,” said Suddy. “It’s much more reassuring than information just sitting in a file in storage somewhere. We are focused on protecting our records and creating a culture within our communities that prioritizes security.”
“With Yardi EHR, Northbridge Companies is gaining the latest in intrusion prevention and security best practices from one of the industry’s most trusted cloud providers,” said Ray Elliott, vice president of senior living at Yardi.
