PointClickCare Launches Mobile Practitioner Engagement Solution to Connect Senior Care Providers with Practitioners

According to a 2013 report by the U.S. Commission on Long-Term Care, the number of people across the United States who are dependent on long-term care is expected to rise from 12 million in 2010 to 27 million in 2050. PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software provider for senior care, continues to address this need. Today, the company announced at the AHIMA Long-Term and Post-Acute Care Health IT Summit its new Practitioner Engagement Solution. Accessible through web browsers and iOS mobile devices, the secure application allows long-term care practitioners, physicians, clinical staff and administrators to work together efficiently anytime and from anywhere.

PointClickCare’s Practitioner Engagement solution allows nurse practitioners and physicians to view charts, electronically co-sign orders and have secure HIPAA-compliant text conversations via their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices. By better connecting practitioners with clinical staff and supporting full integration with the PointClickCare electronic health record platform, Practitioner Engagement helps build greater confidence in care information among providers, and enables information to 'follow the patient' across the senior care continuum.

"As the number of seniors requiring long-term care continues to grow over the next decade, the associated costs will grow significantly. Mobile tools and strategies are becoming fundamental factors for reshaping the way coordinated care is delivered," said Matthew Wayne, MD, Chief Medical Officer, CommuniCare Family of Companies. "PointClickCare's new Practitioner Engagement solution significantly improves the way healthcare practitioners, physicians and clinical staff exchange information and make decisions."

PointClickCare’s approach to mobile strategy combines technology leadership with a strong emphasis on the user experience to ensure rapid adoption. The Practitioner Engagement solution's following key features improve access to information, streamline communications and automate error-prone, time-consuming paper-based processes:

  • PointClickCare Secure Conversations: This mobile application allows clinical staff to contact practitioners via HIPAA-compliant text messages. The ability to send secure text messages directly to a practitioner’s iPhone eliminates multiple unreturned calls and messages, and expedites the time it takes to make clinical care decisions.
  • Mobile Patient Charts: Practitioners can access a patient chart anytime from anywhere. Increased interoperability provides quicker, easier access to history and trends. For example, a physician who prescribed high blood pressure medicine for a patient can use an iPad to follow-up within minutes.
  • Mobile Order Signatures: Instead of leaving repeated phone messages and making a special trip to provide a paper signature, practitioners can now view and electronically sign orders with a touch of a button.

"PointClickCare Practitioner Engagement delivers a new standard for connected and coordinated care. Our new mobile technology helps residents get faster treatment and better care while ensuring security, privacy and compliance every step of the way," said Mike Wessinger, PointClickCare CEO. "With Practitioner Engagement our end goal is to enable providers and physicians to have more accurate and timely information to collaborate on better care decisions, whether they’re on site at the facility or on the go.”
