Keystone Publishes Guide to AI-Powered Passive Health Monitoring

Industry Innovator's New E-Book Details Emerging Technology That Is Changing the Ways Senior Housing Operators Are Approaching Preventative Care

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - August 24, 2015) - Keystone Technologies, an industry innovator in senior care technology solutions, today announced it is publishing a resource for senior housing executives and care directors looking to learn more about the role of artificial intelligence (or AI) in passive health monitoring technology. The e-book, AI-Powered Passive Health Monitoring: Going Beyond Nurse Call Systems in Senior Living, is available for free download at www.keystone-technologies.com/ai-powered-passive-health-monitoring.

For many years, senior housing communities have relied on traditional nurse call systems because they generally represented the best technology available. Although workable to some extent, these systems have routinely fallen short in a number of key areas. Artificial intelligence-powered passive health monitoring has emerged as a smarter, more efficient, and, ultimately, more effective alternative to the traditional nurse call system. Keystone's new e-book explains how this cutting-edge technology pulls together sophisticated hardware, software, and sensor systems to achieve ongoing oversight of a range of key functional health indicators.

Features of the guide include:

  • Who benefits from AI-powered passive health monitoring
  • Details on how the technology prevents falls, pressure ulcers, and more
  • The business case for adopting AI and passive health monitoring in senior living

"In senior housing, things are possible today that would not have been dreamed of a decade ago," says Andy Belval, President and CEO of Keystone Technologies. "Nurse call systems have historically worked to some extent and may still have their place, but they are a far cry from what today's technology can offer. For senior living executives and care professionals, the choice is philosophical as much as it is practical. In addition to improving quality of care, easing staffing challenges, and bolstering the bottom line, a commitment to AI and passive monitoring demonstrates a senior community's readiness to embrace the future. Our new e-book delivers important information to senior living communities looking to lead the way into a new and better approach to preventative senior care."
