PointClickCare Helps LTPAC Providers Keep People Happier And Healthier At Home With The Introduction Of Its Electronic Health Record And Remote Care Solutions For Home Health

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

With more seniors wanting to age in place longer and the desire to keep patients in the lowest cost care settings, many providers are looking to diversify their care offerings to better meet the evolving needs of patients, partners and staff across the long-term and post acute care market. As part of its commitment to enable providers to deliver better outcomes in the most appropriate care settings, PointClickCare today announced the latest addition to its leading LTPAC cloud-based platform, PointClickCare At Home, a solution suite that will be showcased at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting & Expo in New Orleans.

“We designed PointClickCare At Home with the customer in mind, focusing on the top obstacles to their success in this growing LTPAC segment,” says Terri Weckle, Senior Vice President, Strategic Products and Home & Community-based Care Solutions at PointClickCare. “We consistently heard from home health providers that their teams are spending too much time on administrative tasks, that documentation is complex and often not completed in a timely fashion, leading to inconsistencies in documentation and billing, and that they are looking for ways to deliver better outcomes so they become the preferred provider in today’s increasingly narrowing networks. PointClickCare At Home is uniquely focused on solving these challenges, with a regulatory compliant, mobile electronic health record that supports electronic visit verification and remote care capabilities and is also designed to be easy to use for staff and patients alike.”

With an ability to drive clinical efficacy through effective and accurate in-home care and remote monitoring, the PointClickCare At Home solution suite has an easy-to-use interface that allows users to capture and distribute timely, accurate and complete documentation with minimal training or technical know-how. Not only do the PointClickCare At Home solutions help to maximize operational efficiency and staff satisfaction while decreasing employee onboarding costs, the tightly integrated care delivery and financial workflows help to eliminate revenue leakage and improve cash flow.

“With over 15,000 communities using PointClickCare today, we offer a unique value proposition for LTPAC providers to simplify the accessibility and sharing of data across care settings,” continued Weckle. “Providers offering home health care, whether as part of a broader care portfolio or as a stand alone agency, benefit from an integrated platform that will enable care teams and their valued partners to draw from, and contribute to, a common patient record.”

“As the industry shifts, technology becomes necessary to drive efficiencies that care providers require, both today and into the future. However, there is often a bit of a disconnect for many providers on the significant role that technology can play in addressing the industry’s biggest challenges,” says Majd Alwan, SVP of Technology, LeadingAge, and executive director at LeadingAge CAST. “Understanding and planning for the role of IT as the enabler for care that bridges across the continuum, regardless of the care setting, is an essential differentiator for the LTPAC, which is why it’s important for providers to invest in the right technology in order to help them achieve success in this changing market.”
