MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –PointClickCare, the leader in cloud-based healthcare software for the long-term and post-acute care market, today announced its Connected care center offer. The online solution allows residents, families and caregivers to play a more active role in their care journey. The new offering provides access to real-time information on resident well-being, enabling family and caregivers to make informed decisions about care anytime and anywhere.
As demand for access to health information continues to grow, Connected Care Center enables Qualified Nursing Facilities (SNFs) and Senior Living Communities (SLs) to save hours spent on research and transmission information, allowing them to spend more time doing what they do best – providing quality care. Residents can also view their health information in real time, allowing them to have an impact on the outcome of their care. The Connected Care Center requires minimal staff involvement and is integrated directly into PointClickCare’s EHR, making it quick and easy to activate. The offering can also give third-party healthcare providers, such as physicians, secure access to a patient’s most recent health information, ensuring continuity of care.
With the recent implementation of the Cures Act, health care providers, including NFCs, are required by law to provide access to health information. The Connected Care Center provides an easy-to-implement solution that ensures Cures compliance while reducing the time spent handling high volumes of information requests.
âAccess to health data is crucial to making the best and most informed decisions about patient care,â said Angelo Papatheodorou, Venture board member and operating partner at PointClickCare. âThis offering puts a unified source of patient data at the fingertips of families, NFCs and other healthcare providers, eliminating information gaps that can so often interfere with quality of care. Enabling a more holistic view of patient care is at the heart of what we do, and we continue to push the boundaries of interoperability to ensure the best health outcomes for patients. ”
As part of a PointClickCare subscription, US-based SNFs and SLs can provide access to the Scalable Offer at all locations at no additional cost.
