May 9, 2016 Rochester, NY– RCare, a leader in innovative nurse call systems, announced today technical integration with PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software platform for the senior care continuum.
This integration allows for resident and room information to be seamlessly synchronized between PointClickCare and RCare systems. The PointClickCare platform synchronizes with RCare when residents are admitted, discharged, or transferred, ultimately ensuring better staff coordination and efficiency.
By automating this process, RCare caregivers and administrators can be confident that the latest room information doesn’t need to be double checked. It is already in RCare, and free from data entry errors. When paired with RCare’s Advanced Location Protocol (ALP) technology, facilities can now pinpoint the exact pendant location, including floor number, and quickly associate the exact resident.
“PointClickCare’s electronic health record (EHR) is the industry standard in longterm care,” said Myron Kowal, RCare founder and CEO. “Our mutual customer base requested this integration to avoid duplicative efforts and data entry time.”
Central to this integration is the fact that RCare is one of the only nurse call systems that has secured HIPAA compliance, verifying that patient data is private, protected and secure. This is critical when working in conjunction with any sort of patient health information.
“As part of our continued focus to ensure we are offering our customers the best tools to help them streamline their processes, we will be implementing RCare Mobile, the most advanced messaging platform. RCare Mobile will give care providers the ability to import time spent for response calls, caregiver and resident interactions, as well as other pertinent details regarding PointClickCare billing.”
