PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software for the senior care market, today announced the release of its Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) solution, a clinical workflow and intelligence solution that helps Infection Preventionists and care teams perform ongoing resident surveillance focused on infection prevention. Proactively managing and controlling the spread of COVID-19 amongst the senior population is top of mind for healthcare providers and government agencies worldwide. To effectively understand and bring awareness to infections, care teams need an efficient way to review and access centralized case information and facilitate transparency in reporting of infection information across their facilities and communities.
“The health and safety of our customers and the residents they serve remains our top priority,” said Bill McQuaide, Chief Product Officer, PointClickCare. “COVID-19 has placed a heavy burden on our customers’ shoulders. This release of Infection Prevention and Control reinforces our philosophy that we are not just a vendor to our customers, but a trusted partner who is joining them in the fight against this pandemic. We hope this solution offers much needed support to the heroes of senior care who are working around the clock to keep our most vulnerable populations safe.”
The capabilities of the Infection Prevention and Control solution include:
- Access to a repository of infection cases in a centrally accessible location to ensure that care staff and administration can effectively manage infection cases
- Replace the manual efforts required to compile infection case information, including COVID-19, by attaching information already documented in PointClickCare
- Capture resident condition using industry accepted standards to correlate the symptoms of infections to ensure a consistent approach in all residents showing signs of infection
- Interactive dashboards that display real-time infection case information
- Ability for Infection Preventionists to develop evidence-based recommendations based on infection analysis for clinical and non-clinical team members
“The IPC solution has helped to increase efficiency and transparency for our team – critical elements of dealing with an evolving pandemic like COVID-19,” said Vicki Nordby, Nurse Consultant, Marquis Companies. “Prior to implementing this solution, our teams at the facility level were tracking infections in multiple formats, all of which needed to be manually pulled together into one report. Today, all tracking and reporting is done right within the PointClickCare EHR, allowing our teams to quickly and effectively communicate information as we need it, which has proven to be invaluable during this difficult time.”
Given the devastating impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our customers and the communities they care for, PointClickCare’s Infection Protection and Control solution is available on a no cost, no obligation basis to all customers, subject to terms and conditions, through October 31, 2020.
“One of the best ways to fight the spread of infection is through intense monitoring, knowledge, and insights at the point of care,” said Russ DePriest, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Skilled Nursing Market, PointClickCare. “Through ongoing, real-time resident surveillance focused on infection prevention, we are enabling care teams to support their senior populations better, those who we know are at most risk for diseases like COVID-19.”
