Lexington Health Care Network recently announced plans to incorporate WellAWARE Systems’ Sleep Well Be Well program and advanced “smart sensor” technology into its independent and assisted living communities.
Illinois-based Lexington Health, which manages more than 2,000 skilled nursing beds in 10 different long-term care buildings, will integrate the program into its Lexington Square Senior Residence properties.
“Lexington Health Network is committed to providing personalized, high-quality healthcare for our senior residents. As the level of acuity in both independent and assisted living continues to rise, we needed to find a new approach to care delivery and create a new standard of care,” said Dale Zaletel, CEO of Lexington Health Network, in a statement.
The program uses data about residents’ wellness and health to alert caregivers to emergent health conditions, which may prevent emergency room visits and hospital admissions. This in turn can significantly improve health-related outcomes, lower costs, and also increase occupancy.
“This focus on a new standard of care is resulting in reduced costs, improved care quality and increased lengths of stay,” said Jeff Noce, CEO of WellAWARE Systems.
