Keystone Technologies Publishes Guide to Decreasing Operating Costs and Increasing Resident Retention

Industry Innovator's E-Book Details the Importance of IT Infrastructure in Reducing Costs and Meeting the Expectations of Seniors and Their Families

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - January 04, 2016) - Keystone Technologies, an industry innovator in senior care technology solutions, today announced it is publishing a resource for senior housing operators as they face the increasing challenges of controlling costs and retaining residents. The e-book, Senior Living Executive Guide: How Senior Housing Can Cut Operating Costs and Increase Resident Retention in 2016 and Beyond, is available for free download at www.keystone-technologies.com/cut-operating-costs-and-increase-resident-retention.

The senior housing market is experiencing a time of not only great complexity, but also great opportunity. In 2016, the industry will be on the brink of a population tsunami as more baby boomers retire. At the same time, senior housing operators face rising labor and healthcare costs, as well as challenges with resident retention and the high levels of service and amenities seniors and their families demand. Keystone Technologies' new e-book outlines how senior housing executives can cut operating costs and increase resident retention by stabilizing staffing, supporting resident wellness, and investing in IT infrastructure for the long term. Among the guide's features:

  • Why stabilizing staff turnover will ultimately reduce costs
  • How technology can improve patient wellness, which subsequently improves resident retention
  • Four steps senior housing operators can take to develop an IT infrastructure that lasts over time and cuts operating costs

"Decreasing operating costs while keeping retention numbers high will continue to be a challenge for senior housing operators in 2016 and well into the future," says Andy Belval, President and CEO of Keystone Technologies. "The saying that you must spend money to make money is especially true in the senior housing industry. Virtually every significant operating cost can be reduced through careful management and thoughtful investing -- and more than often, these investments will come in the form of IT. Our new e-book explores how solid information infrastructure, technology, and staffing support can lead to greater efficiencies, improved wellness, happier employees, and residents who want to stay in your community."
