Leading North American EHR Vendor for the Senior Care Market
Showcases Latest Offering at AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#LTPAC–Building on its industry leading EHR platform to advance senior care
through technology and innovation, PointClickCare
debuted its latest skin and wound smartphone app that integrates with
the PointClickCare EHR platform. Over the next two days at the AHCA/NCAL
Convention & Expo
, PointClickCare will showcase its complete
LTPAC continuum solution, with product demonstrations specifically
focused on the new skin and wound smartphone app, designed to help
senior care providers deliver more connected and collaborative care.


Wound care represents a major risk to LTPAC providers and is a frequent source
of claims
against providers. As a result, providers must show that
they are a trusted partner in the care continuum to help manage this
risk and guarantee compliance. PointClickCare places the value-add tools
in the hands of the care team to ensure proper treatment and recovery of
residents.

“The secure, HIPAA compliant / EHR-linked skin and wound smartphone app
from PointClickCare has allowed us to develop consistency in our wound
assessment and documentation. This consistency, with the ability to
track and communicate wound status, is a significant part of our risk
mitigation strategy,” said Amy Cassata, RN, quality improvement nurse
consultant, Great Lakes Healthcare Group, LLC.

“Since we’ve started to use the PointClickCare skin and wound smartphone
app, our team can identify the exact current status of a wound’s healing
progress more quickly, conduct analytics and provide outcomes data for
the EHR,” added Cassata. “This gives us a huge advantage because we are
confident that we are meeting public health compliance and better
managing our care.”

The PointClickCare skin and wound smartphone app, which is powered by Swift
Medical
, automates best practices in documenting wounds, which will
help to improve care delivery, mitigate risk, increase operational
efficiency, increase collaboration between team members, and improve
resident engagement.

“We understand that our customers, the leading LTPAC providers in North
America, must use technology as a key part of their care services,
resident and family engagement, and business operations,” said Dave
Wessinger, chief technology officer, PointClickCare. “We are pleased to
fill this demand with solutions like the skin and wound smartphone app
to help them generate better clinical outcomes and manage risk with more
transparency and access to critical data.”
