ALIS Release 5.6

Announcements and 5.6 Release Information


COVID-19 ALIS Update

We are continuing to pursue features aimed at COVID-19 risk mitigation efforts, and with this release we used your feedback to improve our newest Vitals Tracking features. One of our most important goals is to implement tools to help you during this time.

The truth remains that our world revolves around your communities, staff, and residents. Please contact us if there is anything we can do to help. Know that we are here for you and are always thinking about ways we can help. 

ALIS 5.6 arrives on Monday, May 4th, 2020 at 12a CST.

This release will result in downtime lasting between 30 and 60 minutes, taking place overnight on Monday 5/4 at approximately 12am CST.

Please plan for this downtime and inform your staff. If you have any questions on how to handle this downtime, please contact the Support Team at or your account representative.
