PointClickCare's Travis Palmquist was published in the Jan. 5, 2017, issue of Senior Living, where he shared the 7 tech trends to watch in senior living for 2017.

The trends are as follows: 

  • Technology enabling better service capture and documentation, which leads to better billing.
  • Managing care transitions more efficiently by engaging future residents early, providing technology that helps them remain independent as long as possible.
  • Attracting a more informed population of residents, telling prospects how the facility is using technology to track the services residents and families care about.
  • Mobility for team members, meaning care teams can spend more time with residents, documenting as they go.
  • A new generation of young caregivers who expect technology that yields mobility and automation.
  • Greater need for medication management, which technology can help achieve.
  • The evolution of the portal for resident/caregiver engagement, a growing area that operators need to watch.
