Raleigh, NC; February 3, 2021 – Allbridge, the leading provider of end-to-end technology solutions for senior living properties nationwide, has announced their new managed services platform designed specifically to meet the evolving needs of senior living communities. The platform, called Vista, connects residents and staff through a comprehensive package of data network, video, and voice solutions, providing communities with a fully managed suite of modern technologies.
Senior living communities utilizing the platform benefit from a flexible partner who can manage the entire network, which alleviates the burden on property staff and provides simplicity for residents. Vista also reduces operating expenses into a single, predictable cost, allowing communities to avoid costly upgrade cycles. As a HIPAA compliant business associate, Allbridge meets the proper design and implementation standards to ensure communities can fulfill HIPAA requirements and stay ahead of security needs.
Technology usage has been rapidly growing among older adults, and with increasing numbers of Baby Boomers retiring, senior living operators have already been looking ahead to match rising resident expectations. The COVID-19 pandemic has expedited the need for enhanced communication capabilities, as well as the network infrastructure, security features, and IT staff to support it.
“The market has expressed the need for a simplified platform that is completely managed by the service provider to reduce the strain placed on inhouse staff and to supplement the lack of IT resources available at a typical community,” said Todd Johnstone, CEO for Allbridge. “We have designed an enterprise solution that is robust, reliable, and secure. Vista delivers advanced but easy-to-use technologies to meet resident expectations, as well as ongoing maintenance and support for seniors and staff.”
Vista is a fully managed, end-to-end technology package for residents and staff consisting of a secure Wi-Fi network designed with HIPAA compliance in mind, DIRECTV video services, and a reliable voice system. The platform includes centralized system management, proactive maintenance, and senior-friendly support. The scalable foundation also gives the community the option to easily add additional engagement features and scale to meet increasing demands.
Once installed, the network is monitored 24/7, every day of the year through the Skyway management portal to increase security and detect potential problems before they occur. All cloud-based updates are included to optimize the performance of the network and minimize system downtime. Skyway personal area networks (PAN) provide security and privacy for each resident with an easy-to-use interface, and give staff the ability to utilize bandwidth allocation throughout the community to ensure optimal connectivity and functionality.
Transitioning to a managed services provider can provide a range of long-term benefits for senior living communities. Operators can eliminate residents individually provisioning their own services at varying costs, quality, and support levels from multiple providers. The convenience of providing data, video, and voice solutions can enhance the resident experience and make the community more competitive, while reducing owner operating costs.
The addition of Vista into Allbridge’s comprehensive portfolio of products supports the company’s mission to bring an integrated and connected experience to customers and their end-users. Allbridge offers expertise in enterprise data, video, and voice solutions with the most knowledgeable implementation engineers in the industry and an expansive, nationwide support network.
