Chicago-based Sentrics (formerly SeniorMetrics) has acquired Silversphere, the company announced Thursday. The news comes a week after Sentrics announced the acquisition of SeniorTV, a provider of cable TV and internet to senior living and care operators.
Daytona Beach, FL-based Silversphere dates to 1945 and now offers technology including emergency call systems, nurse call systems, resident monitoring, data warehousing and predictive analytics for senior living communities.
Brian Dawson, grandson of Silversphere founder Herman Dawson and CEO of the company, will remain as president and will have an expanded role as executive vice president and chief people officer.
“Silversphere was developing new technology to revolutionize the eCall systems market when Sentrics approached us about joining its family,” Dawson said. “This enables a broader vision of keeping seniors independent more quickly than our own roadmap predicted.”
Sentrics’ other recent acquisitions, in addition to SeniorTV, include Allen Technologies, with a focus on patient engagement within acute care hospitals, and Ciscor, supplier of emergency call and monitoring solutions.
“The combined technologies of all companies are being integrated into a single robust platform, including resident safety, communication, entertainment, monitoring, engagement and data analytics,” Sentrics CEO Darin LeGrange said in a statement. “This will enable operators to provide a higher level of care and better outcomes while reducing costs and increasing efficiency.”
