PointClickCare has secured the rights to the platinum sponsorship, the top tier of support, for the McKnight’s Women of Distinction program.

The first-year program has garnered hundreds of nominations for outstanding women in the industry. PointClickCare wanted to extol those who have contributed to making life better for senior care residents, said President Dave Wessinger.

“Diversity — in all its forms — is a core company value and strategic priority for PointClickCare – it’s not only the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do,” he said. “We believe that diversity is a key driver that helps organizations remain innovative, productive, and competitive. As the technology leader of the long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) and senior living industries, partnering with more than 16,000 organizations, we share responsibility to celebrate women who create a culture of caring and connectivity in these very important fields of work.”

The final deadline to submit a nomination for the Women of Distinction program is by the end Thursday, Jan. 31.  Entries carry a $25 fee and must be received online by midnight. Winners will be announced in the spring.
