INDUSTRY WATCH: May/June 2015
Yardi has announced the launch of the Yardi EHR browser-based electronic health record solution that is built into its suite of products for the senior living industry. According to the company, Yardi EHR is the first electronic health record solution to operate within a complete enterprise resource-planning platform designed specifically for senior living providers, namely Yardi Voyager Senior Housing.
Core functions of Yardi EHR include resident assessments, care planning, staff assignment oversight, medication administration, incident tracking, wound care, and behavior management. As Yardi VP of Senior Living Eric Kolber points out, these are features that help Yardi 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 nonintegrated software.
