Keeping Occupancy Rates High for ALC

This article explains a new venture between Intel and GE, smart sensor technology, that claims a return on investment (ROI) relatively quickly (2-3 years says one source). The hope is that by carefully monitoring residents through data (bathroom trips for example) steps could be taken to prevent significant injuries, accidents or a worsening condition.  A resident who goes to the hospital may not return to an ALC or come back with a higher care need. Less turnover means more revenue.
