2018 AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention

NCAL-3 - Are You Still Using Horses or Are you Henry Ford?

Sunday, October 7
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
CE: NAB: 0 | Nurses 0

This presentation will focus on technologies that can change the quality of care in the next five years, resulting in higher-performing organizations. We will touch upon historic understanding, current research, and current and future technology, and we will go into detail about these six specific technologies that can revolutionize the senior living environment within the next five years: sensors and wearable technology; OLED lighting; crowdsourcing and gamification; robotics; data mining and artificial intelligence; and mobility. For reference, we will look at examples of early adopters, including leading global industries, scientists, and XPRIZE tech picks, and discuss the significant impact of implementation on supporting targeted quality initiatives for assisted living, SNFs, and long term care facilities. Details about the positive impact on staff and customer satisfaction, which ultimately results in higher systems performance, will be woven throughout the presentation. Since few have implemented these technologies, measurable results will be based upon individual facility programming and individual assessment. Program providers using historic gaming platforms for therapy have seen very positive outcomes, even among the more elderly who are adapting to personal computing. Advancements in robotics and telemedicine let care providers and families communicate with immediacy and offer the potential for more accurate initial assessments. Attendees will participate in an interactive session that will illustrate the use of this technology combination as a component of quality service.
