Nxtgen Care partners with RCare at Liberty Senior Living facility


Nxtgen Care and RCare Inc. (Response Care) announced a partnership that integrates the two product lines into a seamless solution, allowing select senior care organizations to offer better care and services.

RCare, a creator of advanced nurse call and monitoring solutions, is an ideal partner for Nxtgen Care to help accelerate deployments of Nxtgen Care technology at senior living facilities throughout the USA market. The Nxtgen Care and RCare solution integration allows for alerts & messages from either system to be received by the same caregiver mobile device.

“The idea for the partnership between the two companies came out of a request from a mutual client, Liberty Senior Living,” said David Burke, Nxtgen Care Founder | CEO. “They wondered whether it was feasible for the two companies to integrate our products. I got connected to RCare, and we mapped out what an integration would look like, and how it would add value.”

“RCare is always looking for opportunities for interoperability that will benefit our clients, and this was a good one,” said Myron Kowal, Founder and CEO of RCare. “There is a lot of overlap between our missions, and our company philosophies. When we pool together, we can exponentially improve resident care and drive operational efficiencies for the communities.”

The site chosen for the initial implementation was The Templeton of Cary, Liberty’s newest continuing care retirement community located near Raleigh, North Carolina.  Liberty operates senior living communities in five states. “We wanted an integrated approach to healthcare and business intelligence that we hoped an RCare-Nxtgen partnership could provide,” said Cindy Stancil, Liberty’s Vice President of Operations. “We are very happy with the result.”

“We really do love the system,” said Jennifer LaMar, Campus Director for The Templeton of Cary. “The staff has adopted the system, and feedback is very, very positive. This is a five-story building, and managers have said the system is such a time saver for finding staff.” Another benefit, especially important now, is infection control. “When staff enter the building, they can immediately see on a real-time facility map who is on contact precautions,” said LaMar. Alerts are triggered if someone enters or leaves an isolation room. “For infection control communication, and for contact tracing, it’s been really, really wonderful.”

“It’s not just about care, it’s about creating a meaningful life, while they’re with us,” said Stancil. Marrying the two systems, she explained, provides “an in-depth look at the interactions and the meaningful moments residents spend with other residents and with staff, which gives us a truer picture of how we’re serving them and meeting their needs. And for staff, it creates a very supportive environment. I’m very appreciative.”
