to learn about Ella!

TapRoot’s Ella® software is truly amazing!  Not only does it facilitate point-of-care documentation by staff about changes in behavior of residents with dementia, but it also provides decision support by suggesting person-centered interventions that are known to be effective in addressing the behavior.  Reducing or eliminating the use of antipsychotics, benzodiazepines, and off-label use of anti-seizure medications needs so be a key strategy as these drugs have serious toxicities.  Happily, one of our early pilots with Ella demonstrated a nearly 20% reduction in antipsychotic prescriptions.  We attributed this to our staff initiating the nonpharmacologic interventions suggested by the Ella software before reaching out to the healthcare provider for drug therapy.

Behavioral interventions work. Utilizing person centered interventions reduce the use of unnecessary psychotropic medication, decrease fall risk from sedation, and reduce unnecessary hospitalizations.
