Yardi Makes Acquisition

Yardi, through the acquisition of Optimus EMR, has expanded its suite of senior living software. The addition of Optimus adds proven skilled-nursing and long-term care functionality to Yardi’s software lineup, giving senior living providers a single platform across the entire continuum of care. With the inclusion of Optimus, the Yardi Senior Living Suite now presents senior living providers with an integrated business solution spanning enterprise resource planning to electronic health records.

Optimus has been developing solutions for complex clinical charting in long-term and post-acute care for more than 15 years.

Eric Kolber, VP of senior living for Yardi, described the benefits of an end-to-end solution this way: “A singlestack solution is the most efficient approach to data management. The benefits include optimal staffing, maximized revenues, and improved resident care.”
