Web Service Delivers Much Needed Boost in Emergency Preparedness for Senior Care and Services Organizations

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Connect 4 Healthcare, LLC has been providing secure communication solutions to the Long Term Care Industry for several years. What many might not be aware of is that one of their services' core features is a multi-threaded mass notification utility which offers their customers emergency communication capabilities that far exceed what the majority of long term care and services providers have today. When the need arises, Connect clients can instantly communicate to the families and related health professionals of all their residents/clients with a single mouse click or press of a button on their cell phone - a capability that dozens of providers and thousands of family members sorely needed recently when Hurricane Sandy was making landfall.


According to Neil Moore, Founder and CEO of the company, "Historically, providers have relied on the telephone in an emergency - most still do. During Sandy we even saw a couple of providers posting notices on their websites. Neither approach is practical or effective in an emergency". Craig Gordon, Director of Business Development for Connect said, "We spoke with a residential care provider in Texas last year who had a building damaged by a tornado. They said it took them more than 17 hours on the phone to contact the families of their residents...imagine if you were the last family on their list. In an emergency you need to push information concurrently through multiple channels directly to everyone who needs it. That's exactly what Connect allows our clients to do." The company's Connect for Healthcare(TM) web service combines email, text messaging and secure web portals to enable their clients to communicate effectively, securely and most importantly in an emergency - immediately. The company recently posted their emergency communication recommendations on its website.
