McKnight’s reported on new technology saving time for caregivers. Christian Living Communities is a Colorado-based long-term care operator. The facility halved caregivers’ time spent measuring vital signs after integrating new machinery into its electronic health records system.

“This is a win-win for the residents and the caregivers. A win for the residents who receive better  quality of care [and] timely care,” said CEO Jayne Keller.

Keller detailed the company’s journey to implement its new EHR system through PointClickCare. The PCC platform allows for medical device integration into the EHR system.

“Every time you take a full set of vitals without this integration, it takes up to nine minutes per resident. You multiply that by six or eight residents in skilled nursing or long-term care, or 10 to 15 residents in assisted living, it really adds up,” Keller said.
