WATERLOO, Ontario, Canada -

GoldCare Inc., market leader in healthcare management software, is pleased to announce Independent Living Services of Simcoe County & Area (ILS) in Barrie, ON has selected GoldCare’s Home and Community Care solution to support the requirements of their community-based services.

Supporting more than 400 individuals through attendant care and assisted living programs, as well as their Accessibility Resource Centre, ILS required a solution that was robust yet easy to adopt and use. Based on GoldCare’s intuitive, user-friendly interface and comprehensive reporting capabilities, ILS selected GoldCare. In doing so, ILS is able to join forces with a number of central LHIN organizations already using GoldCare, to take advantage of a shared full-time resource facilitating GoldCare training and knowledge sharing.

“The opportunity to partner with this group of similar agencies with similar needs and share that resource was key for us,” explained Dan McGale, Executive Director at Independent Living Services of Simcoe County & Area. “We are currently in the training stages, with roll-out set for the beginning of July. Once complete, we look forward to the customization and reporting capabilities of GoldCare, which we anticipate will greatly decrease the paperwork and manual processes currently associated with our existing information gathering.”

According to Paula Hucko, President of GoldCare, “We are very pleased to be partnering with ILS to support their supportive housing, assisted living for high-risk seniors, attendant outreach, referral management and RAI-CHA requirements. Our collaborative efforts will bring many efficiencies to their organization.”
