Integration to help thousands of independent wound care providers seamlessly exchange data with post-acute healthcare facilities
Pittsburgh, PA /PRNewswire/ - Net Health today announced a new integration with PointClickCare Technologies that will enable Net Health's wound care clients to automate clinical documentation exchange with post-acute healthcare facilities. The integration will help independent wound care providers who use Net Health's wound care electronic health record (EHR) software to spend less time on manual work and more time on patient care and business operations.
As the EHR choice for 60 percent of post-acute healthcare facilities, PointClickCare facilitates meaningful collaboration and access to real‐time insights across the care continuum. Net Health is one of the largest analytics and technology solutions for specialty healthcare providers, including wound care providers. Net Health is an official integration partner in the PointClickCare Marketplace.
Thousands of independent wound care providers work at post-acute facilities to ensure patients have optimal care for chronic wounds such as pressure injuries, diabetic foot and venous ulcers. The ability to automate data exchange, such as patient demographic and encounter information between providers and these facilities, is a critical step in the care process.
Without meaningful integration between the technology platforms in use across these care providers, documentation must be exchanged manually. This process can be time-consuming, error-prone and insecure. Net Health is committed to interoperability to facilitate a complete patient medical record, regardless of where the patient is being seen.
"As a best-in-class wound-specific EHR, Net Health Wound Care provides a complete, integrated solution for independent wound care providers providing care in the post-acute setting," said Abbey Cooper, Vice President of Product for EHR Extensions at Net Health. "This agreement is one we believe is not only a win for our two companies but also for wound care providers and post-acute facilities seeking to improve wound outcomes and manage costs."
