Nxtgen Care Saving Lives in the Battle Against COVID-19.

Nxtgen Care Saving Lives in the Battle Against COVID-19.

Healthcare Technology Company deploys innovative COVID-19 Infection Prevention & Control product feature at Assisted Living Facilities in the USA and Canada.

COVID-19 Pandemic is a massive issue for societies worldwide. It is especially a serious matter and top priority for operators of senior care communities. We have heard too many sad stories of COVID-19 having a devastating impact on long-term care and assisted living facilities. Now, Nxtgen Care (www.nxtgencare.com) is on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19, using the tremendous power of its technology to protect residents and staff in this vulnerable community.

In February, COVID-19 gained momentum and spread across the globe. Nxtgen Care began working with client partners in the USA and Canada to build a technology-forward solution. By March, its innovative feature set was pushed into trials. With extremely positive staff and operator feedback, the Nxtgen Care Infection Prevent & Control (IPC) product was further fine-tuned and launched. Today, the product has been swiftly rolled-out across the Nxtgen Care active operator network, spanning a range of states and provinces.

Nxtgen Care IPC captures thousands of data points to provide real-time clinical surveillance and unprecedented business intelligence. The product was specifically designed to help operators of senior care communities protect and safeguard residents, staff and visitors from COVID 19. Nxtgen Care IPC features: dynamic real-time contact tracing, physical distance monitoring, early detection and prevention of infection, isolation and quarantine of residents and/or staff, and options to secure/restrict/monitor buildings & room-level access.

“This is huge. As a former operator of senior care facilities, I know first-hand the challenges operators face when dealing with infections,” says David Burke, Nxtgen Care – CEO. “Typically, operators have a lot of data, but that data is kept in separate silos lacking real-time access and workflow solutions for front line staff. Our Nxtgen Care Platform cuts to the core of these issues. We put outcome-focused solutions in the hands of those who can make a difference when it matters most. Our software provides accountability and transparency in an industry in desperate need of change. We have been revolutionizing this industry since 2017. Now COVID-19 has awakened the rest of the world to the need for change in senior care”, adds Burke

Among operators of senior care communities, the demand for the Nxtgen Care Platform is growing rapidly. This includes facilities owned by Liberty Senior Living, a privately held seniors care organization based in North Carolina. Liberty is a premier operator with over 50 communities spread-out across five states with approximately 5,000 residents. “Nxtgen Care was proactive and responsive. Their new IPC feature is a key tool helping us stay on top of Covid-19. It is another reminder of how important a role Nxtgen Care will play helping us deliver quality care, support, and information.” said Cindy Stancil, Vice President of Operations, Liberty Senior Living Management.

“We have had to hire and build our sales and implementation team to meet growing demand from a partner network now representing over 300,000 residents at senior care facilities in the USA,” added David Burke. “Before the world was rocked by COVID-19, we were deploying in facilities occupied by residents and staff. Since facilities closed to non-essential workers, we worked with our client partners to shift our deployment schedule to their soon to be open new developments so when they start receiving residents they will have Infection Prevention and Control features front and center. Our platform is more valuable than ever – not only can we add quality and longevity to the lives of our elders, we now save lives.”
