Long-term care facilities are exceptionally vulnerable in the COVID-19 pandemic. To protect residents, families, and staff during this time of heightened precautions, RESIDE Admissions strongly recommends that facilities admit new residents remotely.
The admissions process has always been challenging for facilities to manage and overly complicated for residents and families to complete. Before COVID-19, more than 90% of all long-term care facilities still used an outdated paper admissions process. RESIDE’s platform provides an unparalleled, revolutionary antidote to an age-old problem. While RESIDE is a logical progression of any modern-day nursing facility, COVID-19 exacerbated the struggles and emphasizes the need to evolve. The transition from your paper process (or scanned in versions of it) to RESIDE is easy.
Starting to use the RESIDE admissions software in your long-term care facility can be done in three simple steps. Here’s how it works:
- Step 1: Provide RESIDE with a copy of your current admissions packet.
We don’t use a “cookie-cutter” approach to software development. We’ll engage with your team to map out the logic needed to customize the RESIDE experience for your group/organization. This means the product is customized just for your facility and is not overly complicated.
- Step 2: RESIDE’s software engineers tailor the product just for you.
Using the information about your current admissions flow, our developers customize the RESIDE application just for your facility. Emanuel Rubin, VP of Business Operations at Symphony Post Acute Network, said about working with RESIDE, “Customization was vitally important to us.”
We build logic into the software so residents can navigate it seamlessly. RESIDE’s software walks the resident or the resident representative through a series of screens designed to educate, inform, and then ask questions pertinent to the admission. As those questions are answered, the software seamlessly fills out the paperwork in the background. Families only have to follow the software prompts, click submit, and they’re done. Plus, facility staff can start a new admission and oversee the progress from inside the facility or anywhere they are working using the RESIDE Dashboard. Families can complete the questions from anywhere on any device, and your facility staff can oversee everything from an online dashboard with full reporting and analytics capabilities. 100% remotely.
- Step 3: RESIDE’s team does a detailed training for your team.
The designers are experts. Once the software is created, training takes 1-2 hours so your staff can be up and running with RESIDE that very same day. Each facility receives their own RESIDE dedicated iPad, loaded with all of your facility’s unique specifications, including physicians’ names, bed rates, and notification policies, so that all you have to do is power it up. But, we don’t just provide training and walk away. We’re here for you whenever you have questions.
Your facility needs a better way to manage admissions besides the old paper process. Forward-thinking facilities are mindful of the changes coming to the industry and will proactively stay ahead of the curve.
