Shannex extends B Care across all sites in Maritimes
March 19, 2014
TORONTO – B Sharp Technologies, a provider of specialty documentation and complex case management solutions for organizations across the health, social services, and community care ecosystem, is pleased to announce that Shannex, a prominent Home Care, Retirement Living and Long-Term Care services organization in the Maritimes, will be deploying the B Care Senior’s Services Solution to all of its sites across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick after a successful pilot program.
Shannex embarked on a major initiative to integrate information technology into the delivery of client care services and chose B Sharp as their IT partner. The B Care Seniors’ Services Solution provides care professionals with ready access to pertinent client information as well as the tools needed to conduct in-depth assessments that guide the type of services received by clients.
“We value the efficiencies that technology can bring to seniors care,” says Gail Okoh (pictured), Vice President of Corporate Services for Shannex. “The electronic medical record solution that B Sharp implemented for our client health records and interdisciplinary care planning is improving the care and service we provide.”
B Sharp initially deployed the B Care Seniors’ Services solution at Maplestone Enhanced Care, a Shannex facility specializing in Geriatric Care. The project’s success set the framework for Shannex to approve the B Care Seniors’ Services solution for use across all of their remaining retirement living and nursing homes sites. Shannex has over 3,000 clients throughout the Maritimes and provides 20 percent of all long-term care beds in Nova Scotia.
“We are proud to continue to work with Shannex as a partner,” says Michael Martineau, VP, Sales and Marketing at B Sharp. “By unlocking the value of data to support informed decision-making for long-term care professionals, we will contribute to a healthier world and help Shannex achieve their vision of Leading the Way to Better Living.”
