COMS Interactive and PointClickCare Deliver Integrated Solution to Help Providers Achieve Greater Clinical Transparency and Quality Outcomes
Industry Leaders Work Together to Improve Care Coordination and Quality Standards by Embedding Evidence-based Clinical Content Directly Within the PointClickCare EHR Platform
Broadview Heights, OH – November 6, 2017 – COMS Interactive, the clinical care and quality improvement leader in the senior care market and PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software platform for long-term post-acute care (LTPAC), announced today the availability of their integrated solution. Through this collaboration, providers now have the ability to easily access evidence-based care content and insights directly within their PointClickCare electronic health record (EHR) system, allowing for simplified and standardized clinical care content that enhances decision-making, generates quality management and reporting, identifies and reduces exposure in value-based contracts, and improves care coordination.
“We recognize the most critical part of improving outcomes starts with having the right care processes in place,” said Bill Stuart, President of COMS Interactive. “Our partnership with PointClickCare brings evidence-based care content directly to providers in a way that truly standardizes and improves care delivery, ultimately helping to reduce hospital readmissions and improve other outcomes.”
The COMS Care Content in PointClickCare’s EHR provides customers access to deep clinical data and insights related to individual resident status and progress, as well as individual and collective care team performance. These insights enable customers to manage and deliver quality and provide clear evidence of their value to referral partners. Additionally, customers utilizing the Clinical Content Package are able to significantly reduce their development and upkeep for multiple User Defined Assessments (UDAs), as well as Care Plans, Tasks, and Alert Libraries.
“We recognize the need for a standardized approach to clinical care and the importance for clinicians to have easy access to rich clinical data,” says Dave Wessinger, chief technology officer, PointClickCare. “By embedding COMS content directly into our EHR platform, our customers have seamless access to valuable clinical content within a familiar environment. In addition to saving time for clinicians, this brings evidence-based structure and processes to assessments and care plans, resulting in improved quality measures.”
COMS Content is built from the extensive COMS care library, referencing over 20 years of research and customer data. Not only does this provide PointClickCare customers with a standardized approach to quality management and reporting, but it removes variability across care teams and ensures that the data being inputted into the EHR is consistent and accurate every time.
“COMS has given us a consistent way to manage care and it is all delivered right within the PointClickCare EHR. Before implementing this tool, we were using up to 16 different UDAs on a single resident, now we use one,” said Shane Craycraft, Director of Clinical Services at Health Services Management Group. “COMS has been a game-changer for us, from a clinical perspective we’re able to capture and document much more accurate clinical content, which ultimately leads to better outcomes.”
