COLORADO SPRINGS - RCSPros LLC, a business specializing in Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology for assisted-living facilities, announced plans to sell the company.

RCS, the company's flagship product, is an easy-to-use Web-based tool that replaces paper processes on which assisted-living facilities have traditionally relied.

The product allows streamlined communication and significantly improves data sharing among caregivers, administrators and providers, resulting in reduced care and medication errors, higher quality of life for residents, lower facility costs and increased staff productivity, the company said.

The system was developed with gerontology experts at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs and Dunn and Associates, former owners of Palisades independent living facility.

"Our mission from the onset was to improve the lives and wellbeing of older adults by empowering people who care for them with technology that enables high quality, person-centered care," said Kent Carlson, RCSPros founder and CEO.

The RCS system has been deployed at assisted living facilities and is currently being used at four care sites in Colorado, the company said.

RCSPros is selling because the owner is ready to retire and price and terms are negotiable, a company spokeswoman said.

"The EHR market is heating up as a result of the Affordable Care Act and health care reform," said Becky Medved. "The owner feels this is a good time to find someone who will be able to take the company to the next level."
