What Is Point-of-Care (PoC) Software and Is It Right for Your Agency?

Do your clinicians and field staff currently use paper forms and assessments as a means of documentation for patient visits? If so, are you struggling with documentation accuracy and timely submissions? If you answered yes, you might want to start looking for a solution that integrates with your current agency management software.

When your Clinical field staff is providing care, having access to all the information they need at the point of care is critical. With a Point of Care software solution, your caregivers can access records in the field, communicate to your office staff, create custom forms, update charts, and share plans of care all in real-time.

Point of Care workflows are put in place to enhance the communication and visibility between all individuals in the patient process. Eliminating paper not only frees up more time for the clinician to focus on the patient, but it also reduces the cost associated with using paper forms such as copying, scanning, faxing, etc. These improvements in the operational process can help prevent data entry errors and claim denials or takebacks as well.

When looking for a Point-of-Care solution, be sure to consider:

  • Ease of to use for field and office staff
  • Industry-standard forms are included and the ability to customize those forms
  • Reporting capabilities
  • Accessibility from any device
  • Electronic signatures for Physicians, Staff and Clients
  • HIPAA compliance and a certified, secured data solution

The roll out and training process should be seamless and not interrupt the delivery of care. Your PoC solution is simply replacing the paper assessments with an electronic version that will flow back to your billing and financial systems. All your clinician will need is a device with Internet to access the patient information. No paper, no pens, no old charts to refer to!
