February 2021 The Role of Technology in Long Term and Post-Acute Care (LTPAC)
It has taken time, but advanced technology is becoming a standard in the post-acute care industry. Technological solutions are helping to improve patient experiences while also supporting staff in providing the highest levels of patient care and safety.
With many options available, and a need to spend efficiently, post-acute facilities must carefully choose which technologies they utilize. One of the most important considerations in choosing the right IT platform is ease and effectiveness for staff and patients. For instance, new technologies must be easily adaptable for staff. Technology that cannot be easily adapted into workflow, or which demands a large amount of time, will likely be ignored.
Today’s healthcare industry is witnessing advancements in healthcare-related technology that are promising to change the course of health and wellness in ways we never could have imagined. These technological advancements are happening so fast, it’s difficult to keep up with them. Patients are far savvier and knowledgeable when it comes to understanding what they expect from a healthcare provider, hence the need for finding the best IT solution for your facility.
LTPAC is one area of healthcare that is seeing solid improvement in acknowledging advances in technology. For the decision-makers of long-term post-acute care facilities, being able to stay connected with patients is a point of growing concern.
