The American population is changing—and that means important shifts for long term care, too. When we hit the mid-century mark, caregivers and communities will be working with a population that looks very different from what we see today.

Identify High-Risk Residents in Real Time with QA Reader
QA Reader actively monitors all resident data, including frequent fallers and those with risky behavior patterns.
QA Reader continuously updates a real-time resident risk score based on 40 components of risk and recommendations from your online risk management team. The dashboard and reporting system highlight the highest risk residents in order to help you focus your risk management and clinical efforts on the residents requiring the most need.
Finally: an Automatic Process to Identify Frequent Fallers
QA Reader monitors resident fall trends to identify frequent fallers. Our frequent faller watchlist lists all residents that have fallen more than once in any 30-day window over the preceding 90 days.
QA Reader’s live frequent faller watchlist enables you to view the falls by type for all frequent fallers, sort by incidence and drill through to a specific resident’s QA and risk trends. At the resident details page, you can quickly view the history of events for the resident, viewing all incident reports and downloading the fall investigation documents.
