Constant Care Technology® LLC announced on Tuesday the integration of its CareConnection® connectivity platform with MatrixCare’s electronic health record system for skilled nursing.

Constant Care’s vitals integration to MatrixCare will expedite the flow of information and eliminate manual entry of vitals signs, according to a release by the company. It will also deliver SMART* predictive analytics that can prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions.

“We are pleased to offer integration with MatrixCare,” said Jodi Funderburk, COO of Constant Care Technology. “Senior care organizations face significant challenges, including the need to reduce unnecessary hospital readmissions. The ability to accurately capture vital signs and weights then quickly give clinical professionals access to this information is critical in addressing this need.

“With the integration between Constant Care and MatrixCare, skilled nursing, assisted and independent living organizations will now have the capability to deliver resident vital signs and weights directly to the resident’s record and receive real-time alerting and predictive analysis of potential health crises.”
