Norada

Senior Care Made Easy

Project Summary

Norada Corporation s an experienced team providing online application services to thousands of businesses for 20 years, so they know their way around hosting business-critical solutions. They care deeply about data security, reliability, usability, and supporting a business's workflow.

Norada provides cloud software that monitors the location of people and equipment as they move around indoors and outdoors. The ensuing information helps teams respond faster to their client's needs, detect issues before escalating, reduce errors, and inform better decisions. Norada does all this through a user-friendly app that translates IoT data for improved outcomes.

Company Profile

Norada provides indoor/outdoor location reporting and alerting for people and equipment, wireless help calls, lone worker support, service logging, and more. They provide data visualization and analytics on the history of data collected, like heat maps and data-driven insights, to guide the best course of action. IoT software is normally for technicians to manage the network, limiting the value of the data collected. In contrast, Norada offers a refined system for end-users so they can receive and manage the data immediately. Norada has made IoT simple, flexible, inexpensive, and aligned to their client's P&L priorities.

Company Profile

The Challenge

As with most industries currently, they are hyper-constrained for staff resources. The company’s main goal is to help their customers optimize people management both staff members and elderly people under their care. Examples of gaps filled by a RAKwireless powered solution and questions to be answered regarding optimizing the work process:

  • Where are your people (staff and residents)?
  • When and where assistance is needed?
  • Whether service was completed or not?
  • Collecting and managing data to back up actions.
  • The anxiety of being responsible for others is minimized.
  • Streamlining of services.

The Solution

LoRaWAN allows for tracking people and equipment both inside and outdoors using simple and inexpensive technology.

When addressing the safety of people, you need assurance the system is going to work all the time. The enterprise facility has limited technical staff on-site, so anything put into these facilities has to “just work” with as little maintenance as possible.

The benefits and main goals of implementing this solution:

  • Precisely locate staff, residents, and equipment regardless of if they are in the building or further out into the neighborhood.
  • Alert when anyone dwells, enters, exits, or is absent unexpectedly from an area.
  • Reduce documentation time by using smart sensors to automatically track when an area has been serviced and monitor the ongoing service intervals.
  • Provides data visualization and analytics on the history of data collected, like heat maps and data-driven insights, to guide the best course of action.
  • Mitigates the fear and anxiety of not knowing what is going on when responsible for the safety of others.
  • Streamlines service through the use of push buttons for service requests or to log an action.
  • Provides management the real-time information to manage staff, their most expensive and most challenging areas to control.
  • IoT software is normally for technicians to manage the network, limiting the value of the data collected. In contrast, a refined system is provided for end-users so they can receive and manage the data immediately.

Outcome

It doesn’t stop there. The company has some upcoming projects in mind. Onboarding new facilities across several industries for a similar implementation is on the table.

While implementations normally start with a focus on location tracking, once the facilities see the value of the system and the ease of expanding to include environmental data (humidity, temperature, water leaks, etc.), they often request to expand the project’s scope.

Nightshift poses the biggest safety risk for residents as Senior Care communities have fewer staff working. Recently, the management team of a community we're working with and the loved ones of a resident received a frantic call at 2 AM about a possible resident elopement. It turns out the resident and the staff searching for him were just missing one another while doing laps of the building for 45 minutes. The efficiencies from this system would have helped completely avoid the stress that was put on the families, staff, and the resident.
