Senior Care Communities Report Abundant Benefits as a Result of Implementing the InSites Enterprise Visibility Platform

Three Assisted Living Residences and Six Memory Care Residences Embrace the Power of Real-Time Locating and Sensing Technologies

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - November 2, 2009) - Intelligent InSites announced today that three assisted living residences known as The Laurels and six memory care residences known as The Haven reported significant benefits as a result of implementing the InSites Enterprise Visibility Platform. The InSites solution combines leading location-sensing devices and web-based software which provide measurable improvements in resident care and staff effectiveness.

The initial goal of the implementation at the residences was to replace an antiquated nurse call system, which was incapable of pointing to the true location of a resident who requested assistance and did not adequately serve the needs of residents with dementia. However, according to Stacy Carter, Regional Director of Operations for The Laurels and The Haven Assisted Living Residences, the InSites solution not only met their immediate need of efficiently replacing a failing nurse call system, but also gave them benefits they were not expecting.

Major benefits include increased resident independence, assistance with the prevention of wandering and elopement, as well as less time spent on searching for residents, staff, or equipment. Additionally, the InSites solution allows The Laurels and The Haven verification of provided care and resident activities, helps them with maintaining regulatory compliance, and provides a competitive advantage over other senior care facilities.

A key advantage of the real-time locating and sensing solution offered by Intelligent InSites over the traditional nurse call systems is its flexibility and capabilities to expand its use beyond a resident assistance system.

"The flexibility of the InSites system is truly exceptional. It allows us to follow corporate policies, but it also accommodates the unique requirements of each facility and the needs of each resident," explains Adam Rosenberger, Director of Information Services for The Laurels and The Haven Assisted Living Residences. "For example, we can define zones considered a danger for individual residents, depending on their current physical or mental abilities, which helps us reduce wandering or elopement situations."

Since deploying the InSites solution, The Laurels and The Haven communities have seen a positive trend in new admissions. The extra level of care and personal attention the InSites solution enables is often an important factor when families choose to move a family member to those communities. The residents' families also appreciate the heightened level of protection and freedom their loved ones enjoy.

"Our residents and their families appreciate that our environment supports their independence. And our staff can request assistance from their colleagues without leaving the resident to reach for the phone. This is a huge benefit our personnel have never experienced before," Carter added.

"We are thrilled to see how our clients embrace the use of real-time locating and sensing technologies and how the InSites solution is helping set new standards in resident care and safety," said Mark Rheault, President and CEO of Intelligent InSites.
