While technology investment in senior housing facilities has been an essential theme for the last several years, these investments are finally starting to deliver the promised dividends regarding resident satisfaction and staff productivity.

Beyond the simple convenience of WiFi, technology-based solutions are delivering valuable data for administrators to make better-informed decisions on everything from resident care to construction expansion.

In particular, the electronic health record (EHR) has become a valuable system to monitor the health and wellness of senior housing residents. Once confined only to skilled nursing facilities, the EHR now allows state-of-the-art facilities to track a resident’s health from the time he or she moves in and document the progress of his or her health over time. Such information can assist staff and family members to make informed decisions about whether a resident needs a new service or a more intensive level of care.
