SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Nov. 26 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) IT management market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes PointClickCare with the 2019 North America Product Leadership Award for its integrated care coordination platform, Harmony by PointClickCare. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution leverages the company’s industry-leading data connectivity capabilities and unparalleled market footprint to eliminate data silos between hospitals, health systems, and their senior care  partners. Its superior patient monitoring and post-discharge patient insights—including patient location, real-time site performance, and detailed progress data—optimize financial, operational, and clinical outcomes for at-risk populations.

“By mobilizing data about patients and facilities, Harmony improves the coordination of care between acute care and skilled nursing facilities during transitions of care,” said Daniel Ruppar, Consulting Director at Frost & Sullivan. “Operating on a single platform, it empowers care teams to gather, interpret, and act on timely data and insights about post-acute patients and skilled nursing facilities in their network to streamline and improve patient transitions and care coordination. With real-time data access and unsurpassed connectivity capabilities, Harmony enables providers tobuild new channels into accountable care organizations and payer networks.”

With more than 21,000 senior care providers using its platform, and over 2.5 million patient records passed through its system in the last year alone, PointClickCare has the most extensive collection of long-term post-acute care (LTPAC) data in North America. leverages this extensive repository, and enables acute care providers to search for a patient across all PointClickCare-enabled facilities, receive timely updates based on relevant, clinical information, and act accordingly to ensure quality outcomes and proactively intervene when a patient is at risk of readmission.

Other innovative offerings from PointClickCare include a document management solution to help customers optimize their admissions process, and employee engagement and customer satisfaction solutions.

“Nearly two-thirds of United States-based skilled nursing facilities use PointClickCare,” noted Ruppar. “Its thought leadership, technical excellence, and ability to support meaningful care coordination and decision-making positions PointClickCare as an innovative industry leader in the LTPAC market.”

PointClickCare is continuing its commitment to solving the biggest challenges in transitions of care for seniors with it’s latest move to provide its customers access on the Carequality Interoperability Network.  The company announced earlier this month at its annual customer conference, PointClickCare SUMMIT, that it will give its customers access to Carequality to allow for interoperable data exchange between and among health data sharing networks and systems.  With its scale and customer footprint in the LTPAC market, PointClickCare is empowering providers to actively share and exchange data bi-drectionally across networks, supporting true optimization of patient care amongst the latest community of senior care providers on a single platform.
