PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software vendor for the long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) and senior living sectors, announced today the launch of PointClickCare Companion. The new mobile app leverages the powerful design possibilities of iOS to significantly improve the way senior living providers track and manage the delivery and documentation of care services, medication, and billing. In addition to Companion, PointClickCare will be showcasing a variety of significant new enhancements to its senior living platform while at the Argentum Senior Living Conference.
“After gathering direct input from senior living communities, as an Apple mobility partner, we’ve harnessed iOS, the most robust development platform available to thoughtfully and confidently create a mobile experience that addresses providers’ complex needs while still keeping the simplicity and the user experience in mind,” says Travis Palmquist, vice president and general manager of senior living, PointClickCare. “As a result, we believe Companion’s sophisticated user interface and streamlined workflow capabilities will drive mobile-led business transformation and help to redefine and improve how communities provide resident care.”
By simplifying the critical task of patient documentation in an easy-to-use iOS app, PointClickCare Companion delivers unique benefits without interrupting the resident caregiver interaction, and provides senior living communities several significant outcomes, which include:
- Enhanced resident experience: With immediate access to information on their iPhone or iPad, caregivers may reduce the time typically required for documenting a task. Tasks can be completed accurately and efficiently, in a timely and less clinical manner, increasing resident satisfaction with the service they are receiving.
- Improved financial health: Senior living communities can quickly identify, capture, deliver and bill for ancillary services, as well as justify additional service billings (scheduled or unscheduled), with accurate documentation.
- Expanded talent retention: Companion’s user-friendly tools empower staff to manage their day by simplifying the medication distribution and documentation process with intuitive workflows. Many activities of daily living (ADL) can be completed in 30 seconds or less at the point of care. Caregivers can spend more time focusing on patient care and less on administrative tasks
These outcomes can be further enhanced when Companion is integrated with other PointClickCare solutions, such as its point of care (POC) and electronic medication administration records (eMAR) modules.
