A new CAST Case Study shows how CAST Supporter ProviNET Solutions gave LeadingAge and CAST Member BHI Senior Living access to a variety of integrated cloud-based technologies designed to improve BHI’s efficiency, ease the process of carrying out administrative tasks, and position the organization for growth.

The Indiana-based BHI Senior Living owns and operates 4 Life Plan Communities where more than 1,000 residents live. ProviNET Solutions is a full-service technology consulting company.

Project Elevate

According to the case study, BHI wanted to deliver a collection of software applications to its 4 Life Plan Communities from its home office data center in Indianapolis.

In addition, BHI needed an information technology platform that could scale quickly and easily as the organization carried out its expansion plans. The BHI information technology (IT) department had been using conventional virtualization and networking technologies, but faced challenges including an aging server and storage infrastructure. 

ProviNET Solutions recommended that BHI use Project Elevate to implement cloud-based technologies throughout its organization. 

Project Elevate is a consortium of collaborative, best-in-class software vendors that use web-based, cloud-hosted technologies to deliver applications. In addition to ProviNET Solutions, members of Project Elevate include:

  • CAST Supporter HealthMEDX, which provides Vision®, a cloud-based electronic medical record (EMR) platform.
  • CAST Business Associate FullCount, which provides a point-of-sale solution supporting senior living organizations. 
  • CAST Business Associate Caremerge, which designed a software tool to help providers coordinate care between staff, residents, and families. 
  • Worxhub, a facilities management solution to support senior living organizations.
  • Intellitec Solutions, a provider of General Ledger/Enterprise Resource Planning accounting software.

Outcomes

BHI has achieved greater software functionality through Project Elevate, according to the case study. For example:

  • The HealthMEDX iCare mobile application offers real-time insights into a resident’s chart and history and lets a resident’s physician authorize new orders electronically. 
  • The Worxhub mobile application sends work orders, and updates service status or inventory, in real-time.
  • The Caremerge application lets residents sign up for community activities and gives family members the ability to view information about their loved one’s participation and wellness. 
  • Best of all, the solutions integrate with each other to seamlessly share relevant information between the different applications. This integration helps to streamline workflow, minimize data entry, and maximize staff efficiencies.
