RCare Launches RMetrix v2 for QAPI, Competes with GeoPendant in LeadingAge Idea Sharks

WEBSTER, N.Y., Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- RCare (ResponseCare), the most innovative provider of advanced wireless nurse call and monitoring technologies, announces the launch of RMetrix v2 advanced enterprise analytics for QAPI, and participation in Idea Sharks at the 2017 LeadingAge Expo and Convention in New Orleans.

The LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo is America's largest annual event for the not-for-profit aging services field, hosting 8,000 aging service professionals from October 30th - November 1st at the Ernest M. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.

RCare is delighted to be back at LeadingAge Expo for the 10th year, with a brand new booth experience. Attendees can visit RCare in booth 1310 to learn about the latest and greatest in nurse call innovation, safety zoning pendants (GeoPendants) and RCare's RMetrix designed for Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI) programs.

The CDC will be issuing regulations requiring skilled nursing facilities to implement a Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement program (QAPI). Communities will have one year completely implement their programs.

"RMetrix allows our communities to measure trends and assess their improvements, which is at the heart of QAPI," said RCare CEO Myron Kowal. "Our built-in customizable reports have an comprehensive list of filters, which can tell you virtually anything you need to know".

LeadingAge will also mark the launch of RCare's "Everyone's a Winner" campaign. RCare has designed an extensive range of technology tools for every single individual involved in care services. From facility/maintenance managers to social workers, from CNAs to executive directors, RCare has designed customized solutions for every role. To showcase this promise, LeadingAge attendees may stop by RCare booth 1310 for a free Bluetooth fidget spinner with music speakers, and then be eligible for a much larger prize. A recent McKnight's article highlighted the advantage of Fidget Spinners for dementia residents.

RCare is thrilled to have been selected for the third year to compete in the annual LeadingAge Idea Sharks competition on Tuesday, October 31, at 2 p.m. Inspired by the popular show Shark Tank, Idea Shark participants will have an opportunity to present solutions for a critical challenge facing nonprofit aging service professionals. RCare will be discussing many challenges, including alarm fatigue, resident freedom and security with the launch of the RCare GeoPendant. The mobile GeoPendant is a PERS device which can discreetly alert caregiving staff if a resident moves outside of his/her custom safe zone.  

"It's especially helpful for mixed population care communities," remarked Kowal. "Instead of locking every door on campus, caregivers define for each wearer a custom 'safe area'. Caregivers breathe a sigh of relief and residents experience a better life."

The Leading Age Conference and Exposition is being held from October 29 through November 1 in New Orleans.
