Yardi announced the launch of Yardi EHR, a browser-based electronic health records solution built into its growing suite of products for the senior living industry. Yardi EHR is the first electronic health records solution to operate within a complete enterprise resource planning platform designed specifically for senior living providers, namely Yardi Voyager® Senior Housing. Yardi clients can now manage health care services, finance, and community operations on one comprehensive platform.
Eric Kolber, vice president of senior living for Yardi, explained how clients will benefit from the built-in features that Yardi EHR brings to the Yardi Senior Living Suite™. “A single-stack software environment with one common platform accessible across departments eliminates disparate software programs, improves data reliability, generates IT cost savings, mitigates risk, reduces training requirements, and facilitates staff collaboration.”
Core functions of Yardi EHR include resident assessments, care planning, staff assignment oversight, medication administration, incident tracking, wound care, and behavior management. “These features help our clients reduce their risk exposure through real-time alerting and enhanced clinical leadership oversight to eliminate incomplete service plans, poorly written notes, improperly documented medication records, and data inconsistencies across non-integrated software,” said Kolber.
Emphasizing that software should be a tool that allows providers to deliver the best care service possible to residents, Kolber described features that enable intuitive input of data and effortless flow of information. “First generation electronic health records were simply electronic versions of their paper-based predecessors,” said Kolber. “Our extensive team of senior living industry experts and engineers, in partnership with a number of our clients, focused on improving upon those old workflows. The result is a truly innovative, next generation EHR system which streamlines operations through a familiar user interface built on the latest, mobile-enabled technology.”
Yardi EHR is a core component of the Yardi Senior Living Suite™ which includes Yardi Voyager Senior Housing for managing occupancy, accounting, and property management, Yardi eMAR™ for prescription medication management, Yardi Senior CRM™ for sales and marketing activities, Yardi eLearning™ for Web-based staff training, and the upcoming SENIORCafé™ for online resident and family member service portals. Yardi also offers additional integrated service modules for electronic payment processing, online banking, procurement, energy management, business intelligence, and more.
