Leading Notification Provider Serves Long Term Care Industry With Robust Communication Solutions
LOS ANGELES, CA – APRIL 14, 2011 – The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) along with Everbridge – the world’s recognized leader in incident notification systems – announced today a new partnership where Everbridge will serve as the preferred notification system to members for the largest association of long term and post-acute care providers in the United States. Together AHCA/NCAL and Everbridge will empower care facilities with the notification tools necessary to improve communications and enhance service quality at every level.
Already the industry leader among the nation’s largest hospitals and medical clinics, Everbridge’s robust notification technology delivers increased operational efficiencies by enhancing staff mobility with real-time information and a drastic reduction in critical response times for first responders. Since the Everbridge service is a subscription-based SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) offering, there is no need to install on-premise hardware or devote IT personnel to maintain, allowing care providers to focus on the vitality of their facility and the care of their residents.
“As our national organization represents and serves all types of long term and post-acute care providers, the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living understands the need to communicate effectively. In this day and age, our members need a reliable method to deliver time-sensitive notifications to specific audiences in a short period of time. For this reason, we have selected Everbridge,” said Governor Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “I am confident our members will see a dramatic increase in their operations with the use of this technology.”
“We are thrilled to welcome the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living to our growing roster of industry-leading organizations”, said Cinta Putra, Chief Executive Officer for Everbridge. “Earning AHCA/NCAL’s exclusive preferred provider status, after a comprehensive evaluation process, is a significant accomplishment for Everbridge as we continue to provide solutions to the healthcare industry.”
Everbridge, the world’s recognized leader in incident notification systems, merges technology with industry expertise to help millions of people communicate in a crisis, manage operational incidents and connect on a daily basis.
