MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–First paragraph of release should read: Simply Connect announced Friday its partnership with Notify, a nationwide nurse call company (instead of Simply Connect is back at it again with another partnership. This time the company has partnered up with Notify, a mobile medical alert system.)
The corrected release reads:
SIMPLY CONNECT PARTNERS WITH NOTIFY
Simply Connect announced Friday its partnership with Notify, a nationwide nurse call company.
Simply Connect states in their mission that “they have engaged with care and service providers across the country to identify patterns in care gaps, care management challenges, crisis management pitfalls and obstructions to care team communication.” By partnering up with Notify, Simply Connect can fix some of these gaps such as care team communication. The partnership also allows Notify to be the catalyst to bring emergency call events into Simply Connect’s personal health record.
Notify, a mobile medical alert system, includes a mobile software application allowing caregivers to interact with resident and security alerts. This interaction captures individual resident and caregiver event data which is then used to enhance accountability and efficiencies for the community.
“Through our partnership with Simply Connect we are able to offer a broad range of communication capabilities that connect residents, families, and care teams,” said Notify’s Senior Vice President Greg Robertson. “This partnership will highlight the greater accountability and efficiencies for care staff provided by Notify, while offering the more personal approach to care management provided through Simply Connect.”
In the past nurses used paper, cell phones, pagers and walkie talkies which was taking away the focus on patients. Now that Notify has created this software nurses are able to spend more time focusing on the care of their patients by using a single device to replace all the different devices used in the past.
“We are excited to see Notify a connected partner become the conduit for tying emergency call systems into Simply Connect,” said CEO Craig Patnode. “The residents will benefit from a more personalized response option. Overall this increases staff efficiency and brings a higher level of accountability to senior housing.”
Simply Connect and Notify will both be attending Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference in San Antonio next week from April 15th -17th. Make sure to stop by their booths (#841 and #843) if you have any questions or want to learn more about the companies.
