Nursing Advantage, Harmony Insights, and Performance Insights are designed to help senior care providers to standardize care delivery and deliver more streamlined high-quality care. Seamlessly integrated in PointClickCare’s core electronic health record (EHR) platform, these new solutions enable proactive intelligence to better align reimbursement with patient needs and allow for better quality outcomes.
“Standardization enables the predictability required for proactive intelligence,” says PointClickCare customer Jason Dugenio, chief information officer, Bridgeway Senior Healthcare. “Having proactive intelligence is how senior care providers can digitally transform their organization and win at PDPM.”
Standardize Care Delivery
“With higher acuity residents, new regulations, nursing shortages, and increased expectations from hospitals and payers, senior care providers are facing more pressure than ever to deliver efficient, repeatable, quality care,” says Russ DePriest, vice-president and general manager of Skilled Nursing, PointClickCare. “In order to achieve the actionable intelligence required to address these multi-faceted challenges, there needs to be a standard by which care is delivered and decisions are made. We’re confident that Nursing Advantage is uniquely positioned to support this paradigm shift.”
Nursing Advantage provides skilled nursing facilities with several significant outcomes, which include:
- Improved Care Delivery – Nursing Advantage has been proven to deliver a 25 percent decline in hospital readmissions while also improving MDS quality scores by 16 percent.
- Managed Risk – Standardized, evidence-based care assessments ensure that staff are using the same enhanced assessments and providing the same level of care to all residents.
- Increased Financial Outcomes – Reduced care delivery variability leads to lower readmissions, improved outcomes, and as a result, a senior care provider is more likely to gain preferred partner status within their network.
“With narrowing networks, it’s crucial to secure and maintain your position as a preferred network provider,” says B.J. Boyle, vice-president and general manager of Post-Acute Insights. “Only skilled nursing facilities that can validate and communicate their strengths will prosper in today’s referral networks. Harmony Insights will empower senior care providers with the insights needed to help them perform at their best and communicate their success to their hospital partners.”
