In the US, 14.7 million people live in long-term care facilities or receive in-home care from professional providers. The cost of this care is $259 billion annually and one of the fastest-growing segments of the expanding US healthcare market, driven by an aging population and growth in the number of disabled Americans requiring care. Where possible, care is shifting away from larger institutions staffed by doctors and skilled nurses to smaller residential facilities, community care, hospices and home care. Small care facilities and in-home care professionals cannot afford expensive EMR software requiring large IT budgets, creating a technology and affordability gap between the large hospital based facilities and the much smaller long-term care facilities.
careLOFT™ was developed with these challenges in mind and based on the real-world experiences of their founders, who own and operate several care facilities in Arizona and California. careLOFT is delivered as a SaaS model providing an affordable solution for any size facility or caregiver by offering powerful web and mobile apps that provide real-time patient information directly to the caregivers iPhone or iPad. Now, caregivers can retrieve and update relevant patient information at the point of care while giving care providers the ability to easily capture and store all patient and caregiver activities for HIPAA compliance and audit purposes.
“We are very pleased that careLOFT has been selected as a top innovator and given the opportunity to present at today’s summit,” said Adam Chez, president and co-founder of careLOFT. “As owners of several managed care facilities, we understand the issues in providing cost effective, HIPAA compliant solutions for our caregivers and residents.
