NewCare Solutions has debuted its SilentAlert Sleep Index to its resident monitoring system, which should help providers increase resident length of stay.

The SASI algorithm builds a statistical model of normal sleep behavior for each monitored resident, and notifies a caregiver if something changes, the company said. Communities who have started using the system say it increases focused and ability to provide timely assistance, which reduces incidents.

“The introduction of the patent-pending SilentAlert Sleep Index represents a significant step forward for proactive monitoring of residents in personal and memory care communities. The SASI algorithm is quite powerful and unique in the industry,” says Will Kaigler, CEO of NewCare Solutions.
