PointClickCare, the huge cloud-based software vendor for the senior and long-term care markets, is helping its customers share clinical information with other healthcare providers by adding access to Carequality.
Carequality, an exchange framework that enables interoperable data sharing among health networks and systems, is now part of a base subscription.
The company announced the news at this week’s annual PointClickCare SUMMIT in Dallas, the industry’s largest vendor-hosted gathering of senior care professionals in North America.
“Our decision to make this investment is rooted in our desire to lead by example, raising the bar for other vendors to follow suit and do the right thing in the interest of driving better quality outcomes for providers and the seniors they care for,” said PointClickCare President Dave Wessinger. “The scale of our customer footprint enables us to make a material impact on the lives of millions of patients and empowering our customers to actively share and exchange data bi-directionally across networks is, in our opinion, a game changer.”
PointClickCare supports over 60% of all skilled nursing facilities and over 10,000 senior living and assisted living communities with more than 2 million patient records flowing through PointClickCare’s system in the past year.
The objective of adding CareQuality is to connect, send-receive information, and automate admission workflows to help senior care teams more quickly reconcile medications, diagnose and more.
