PointClickCare has set up a Mobile Practitioner Engagement Solution to enhance care coordination. Practitioners can now view charts, co-sign orders and conduct secure, HIPAA-compliant mobile conversations. Staff can do this through their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices.

The Practitioner Engagement solution has key features, including engagement with PointClickCare Secure Conversations, which allows clinical staff to contact practitioners via text messages; Mobile Patient Charts, where practitioners can access a patient chart for easier access to history; and Mobile Order Signatures, where practitioners can electronically sign orders with a touch of a button.

“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, M.D., 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.”
