SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PointClickCare Technologies Inc., a leading cloud-based software platform for the long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) market, will be highlighting the success of Senior Housing Companies at this year’s Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference (booth #801). Over the next two days, Senior Housing Companies will showcase how PointClickCare’s senior living technology platform has enabled them to seamlessly transition over 25 senior living communities from a paper-based workflow to an electronic workflow, ultimately helping them to increase efficiencies and reduce errors when it comes to care and service delivery across their organization.
“Today’s senior living residents are moving into communities at a more advanced age, and with this comes increased needs and expectations about the services they are investing in,” said Travis Palmquist, vice president and general manager of PointClickCare’s Senior Living Division. “Providers need to be able to meet these growing needs and with the right technology in place they are able to do so. Senior Housing Companies is a strong example of how a senior living organization has leveraged the right technology for its business, built the right processes to support it, and is seeing the results of those good decisions.”
Senior Housing Companies has successfully implemented PointClickCare across 25 residences in Iowa and Illinois, with additional growth forecasted for 2018. Since first transitioning from a paper-based process to PointClickCare’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform in 2015, the senior living operator has seen an increase in month-over-month revenue and has had no regulatory insufficiencies, something Joy Laudick, director of clinical quality for Senior Housing Companies credits PointClickCare for helping to create. Additionally, the team has seen an increase in the accuracy of care documented by front-line staff, enhanced communication across teams and with family members, and has demonstrated the ability to provide more personalized service and care to residents.
“When I started with Senior Housing Companies, we were using paper documentation. As you can imagine, there were a lot of inefficiencies when it came to documenting care and even greater challenges when it came to personalizing care for all of our residents across our various buildings,” said Laudick. “With PointClickCare, everything is in one place and well organized, allowing our teams to focus on what matters most – delivering valued personalized service and care to our residents.”
With PointClickCare’s senior living technology platform in place, Senior Housing Companies has been able to leverage key insights when it comes to staffing. Today, they are able to track where and when staff are required based on the needs of each resident, which has led to greater efficiency with team members and increased cost savings for the organization.
“The money we’ve been able to save since implementing PointClickCare allows us to reinvest in our business. We can ensure our buildings are being maintained and improved, we can increase activity budgets for our residents, and we can keep up with staffing so that we are paying our care providers as much as possible, something we know is a challenge across the industry,” said Laudick.
