Springfield-Based Startup Partners with The Manor at Elfindale to Equip Staff for Emergencies and Reduce Response Time

State-of-the-art technology developed by a local startup will soon be deployed at The Manor at Elfindale in Springfield, Missouri. Quick Access is a mobile application that provides users with immediate access to a wide range of emergency response documents and information via their mobile phone.

Quick Access knows that every second counts in an emergency. That’s why their mobile application is designed to provide users with the exact information they need to properly respond to a variety of emergencies – fire, natural disaster, active shooters, and more – with the touch of a button and without the need for cellular or internet connectivity.

“Facilities such as retirement homes where there is ongoing care for residents is a perfect fit for Quick Access. This type of facility has complex security, safety and communication needs and can benefit from the simplicity and accessibility of critical information from mobile devices,” says Dennis Lewis, President of Quick Access. “It is estimated that 97% of the population now have a mobile device within arm’s reach 24/7.  With mass shootings increasing at an alarming rate, organizations are looking for ways to better protect their staff and those they serve.”

Quick Access is currently used in a variety of applications and business segments across the country. The Manor at Elfindale represents the first local use of the app in a healthcare retirement setting. The Manor at Elfindale is believed to be the first facility of its kind in the area to deploy this type of advanced safety and security technology for staff and residents.

“We are excited to utilize Quick Access to respond faster and more efficiently to protect our residents, team members and guests,” says Matt Gould, Administrator of The Manor at Elfindale. “This will help move us from slow paper emergency preparedness to instantly accessing critical procedures right at our fingertips; reducing response time which can make a difference.”

The Manor at Elfindale is one of 27 facilities operated by Vetter Senior Living Inc. of Elkhorn, Nebraska. The licensed skilled nursing facility in Springfield has 100 beds and offers a wide range of services, short-term rehabilitation stays, skilled level professional nursing care, and Alzheimer care known as the Memory Support Unit.

Quick Access is a Springfield, MO-based technology company that provides a mobile platform for organizing, indexing, and accessing critical information during emergency events. Launched in 2015, Quick Access has nearly 8,000 users across the U.S. in a variety of organizations including schools, churches, industrial plants, hotels, outdoor entertainment, and sporting facilities.
