MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Value-based healthcare is creating demand for clinical transparency and quality outcomes reporting that directly impacts a senior care organization’s bottom line. Today, PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software platform for the senior care continuum, and COMS Interactive, the clinical care and quality improvement leader in the senior care market, are collaborating to answer this demand.
The partnership between PointClickCare and COMS Interactive will offer a standardized approach to care by integrating evidence-based clinical content from COMS Interactive directly into the PointClickCare electronic health record (EHR) platform. The result will allow LTPAC providers to generate quality management and reporting, improve care coordination, identify and reduce exposure in value-based contracts, and enhance clinical decision making.
“When clinicians have the right information at the right time and place, they can make more confident decisions and offer residents better care,” said Jim Riemenschneider, Founder of COMS Interactive. “This is why we have made it our mission to empower care providers with clinical content including assessments and care guides. Our partnership with PointClickCare will help our customers across North America adopt and maintain our evidence-based content, which will ultimately reduce costs to providers through efficiencies and accuracy.”
As technology, economic incentives and regulatory requirements continue to evolve, this new integration will help to facilitate the transfer of knowledge into practice. PointClickCare will be working closely with COMS Interactive to embed their rich clinical content directly into the EHR platform. As a result, care providers can make more accurate and faster care decisions with confidence that they are delivering the safest care at all times.
“We recognize that the basis for quality management and reporting, as well as better clinical outcomes, is a standardized approach to clinical care driven by evidence-based content,” said David Belbeck, senior vice president of corporate development for PointClickCare. “Having the rich clinical content of COMS Interactive built directly into the PointClickCare platform will be the catalyst for clinical value making our mutual customers preferred care continuum partners.”
