Most caregivers would tell you that providing quality care for patients in need is probably the most rewarding aspect of working in the long-term care/senior living industry. However, managing paperwork and other administrative tasks have traditionally been an extremely time-consuming part of the job. The average caregiver spends at least one hour per day doing paperwork, adversely impacting your facility’s bottom line.
Further, due to job demands, paperwork is often completed several hours after care is provided, leading to gaps and inaccuracies in patient information. PointClickCare (PCC), the largest EHR in long-term care, addresses this issue by allowing caregivers to easily enter all services at the time of delivery, while also providing a single, comprehensive record for each resident. As a result, your team can continue delivering excellent care, even when you’re short-staffed.
PCC Drives Smarter Decisions in Long-Term Care
PCC integrates directly with RCare, a provider of a wide array of UL 1069 tested wireless nurse call and personal emergency systems for senior living facilities, enabling patient information to be updated in real-time. For example, if a patient changes rooms or has a special issue, these updates are made easily from a mobile device, RCaremobile, and immediately synced to RCare or any other EHR database - eliminating duplicate data entry and improving the accuracy of patient records.
Caregivers have additional confidence know that they always have the most relevant patient information when responding to a call and this intel also enables them to anticipate issues for a more proactive approach to patient care. Further, because reporting is unique to each resident, even if they transfer rooms, there is no longer a need for room-to-resident cross-referencing, eliminating a significant administrative headache.
Seamless Integrations for Ease of Care Management
Custom integrations can also be built with the tools you already use, creating a system that works the way you do. PointClickCare can integrate with your EHR system, financial management systems, compliance tools, marketing systems and more. Gain a holistic view of your entre operations with just a few clicks.
Direct and Measurable Return on Investment
You will realize a significant return on your investment with PointClickCare. For example, if you have five staff members working each day at an average rate of $17 per hour, and they are no longer spending an hour or more on paperwork, you just saved over $31,000 in a single year!
With this amplified efficiency, you can do more with less people, which is especially important during a time where finding qualified healthcare employees can be a challenge.
