2021 ARGENTUM BEST OF THE BEST AWARDS


BEST OF THE BEST PinPoint by CarePredict CarePredict, Inc.


CONTACT TRACING DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE SENIOR LIVING ENVIRONMENT


When COVID-19 first threatened senior living communities, everyone associated with the industry in any way, big or small, swung into action with two related goals: Stop the spread, and keep senior living safe.


Yet the most effective way to control infection was to separate, isolate, and distance—actions known to also harm older adults through the dangers of loneliness and isolation. What’s more, sweeping and unselective infection control measures aren’t effective in such high-risk and high-density environments as senior living, where staff and residents are close, moving residents into isolation can cause stress and confusion, and separate quarters are limited.


Fast, accessible, and precise


Good contact tracing is the foundation of stopping spread of infections—and it can be difficult and time-consuming to do traditional contact tracing in the senior living environment. Newer methods using smart phones and wireless technology aren’t appropriate for this group, either. Symptom-based screening—taking temperatures, for instance—take time and can’t identify asymptomatic people.


A better solution would be a targeted one. CarePredict put the company’s minds and patented technology to work to develop the PinPoint digital contact tracing solution, based on simulation of several outbreak-control scenarios specifi- cally in the senior living environment. The solution could extrapolate from a single suspected carrier the duration, areas, and environments that could be an infection hazard, showing staff which individuals needed to be isolated and which parts of the building needed immediate disinfecting.


The solution was fast, as well, in a situation where every minute counts, and had the additional advantage of immediate availability for existing CarePredict customers and minimal infrastructure for new ones. The automated contact tracing required a smart wearable, indoor location technology, and reporting software—and was ready for any member of the staff to use with a click.


18 SENIOR LIVING EXECUTIVE SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2021


PinPoint uses wearable devices and location beacons to track direct contacts and the path of an infected person through the senior living environment.


Healthy results


A peer-reviewed study published in The Journal of Medical Internet Research Public Health and Surveillance showed that “real-time digital contact tracing solutions like CarePre- dict Pinpoint resulted in 52 percent fewer cases of COVID-19 than conventional methods.”


At LifeWell Senior Living, using PinPoint showed that on average, more than 83 percent of the resident population had not been exposed to an infected individual—meaning a majority of residents could have more freedom of movement and socialization.


As well as providing contact tracing for future outbreaks such as influenza, the infrastructure can help gather health insights and data, be used as a call button, and provide keyless access.


Further, the same infrastructure used for digital contact tracing can deliver AI-powered wellness insights on seniors, as a concierge call button and for keyless access controls.
