PointClickCare Study Demonstrates the Value of Embracing Technology

LeadingAge Gold Partner with CAST Focus PointClickCare has released the results of its Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study, which analyzed the return on investment (ROI) for PointClickCare’s Skilled Nursing customers. The study found a net present value (NPV) of $1 million over three years, and an ROI of 418%. The study comes as the COVID-19 pandemic accelerates the urgency to find a solution to improve the senior care experience.
Feedback indicated that the solution has made information and reporting accurate and accessible, promoted better decision making, reduced human error, and enabled timely billing and compliance. Customers reported reducing nursing staff turnover by 22% and saving substantial staff time. Additional, unquantifiable benefits reported include improved evidence-based care plans, enhanced privacy, security and compliance, and improved nursing staff audits.
PointClickCare commissioned the study, which Forrester Consulting conducted. The Valdosta Daily Times reported the news.
