"SamarionSolution(SM) offers the industry new and unprecedented benefits and our company realizes that in order to verify these benefits, we need to undertake systematic and independent outcome based studies," said Samarion CEO Mark Rodgers. "Assembling this world-class team with unparalleled outcome based partner nursing facilities is the company's first step in defining the new quality improvement standard."

Dr. James Hughes, a distinguished orthopedic surgeon and former chief of staff at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), will chair the OBS team. In addition to Hughes, the OBS team includes Majd Alwan, PhD, Tonya Estes, Kim Hoover, PhD, and Sheila D. Keller, PhD.

Hughes' clinical expertise, starting with medical education at the Bowman School of Medicine and coupled with orthopedic residency at John Hopkins, will complement the team of experts, whose extensive experience includes outcomes based research, federal grant research and evaluation, aging-service technology, and nursing home administration.

Alwan, who received his PhD in intelligent robotics from the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, is a noted researcher and authority on aging-services technologies. Representing the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) and their Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST), Alwan brings a wealth of knowledge in outcome based studies and industry association independence.

Tonya Estes is a licensed nursing facility administrator, having consulted on myriad healthcare issues specializing in Medicare regulatory and compliance matters. She has served for 17 years as an administrator of assisted living and nursing home facilities.

Hoover, also a registered nurse, and Keller both earned their PhD in clinical health sciences from UMMC. As research consultants, their expertise lies in the areas of outcomes based research, evaluation and research for federally funded grant projects, and long-term care nursing workforce issues.

The Guardian House Total Alzheimer's Facility in Lake Charles, La., is Samarion's inaugural OBS partner site, and the company will soon announce additional OBS partner sites.

SamarionSolution provides unprecedented restraint-free fall prevention; wandering and elopement prevention; resident, staff and visitor safety and security management; unparalleled staff management and facility monitoring; and an all-encompassing family-and-friends communications system.

Samarion is a privately-held corporation based in Jackson, Miss., dedicated to improving the quality of elder care.
