In many industries, including long-term care, mobility is changing the way services are being delivered. The recent introduction of new handheld devices, such as the Apple® iPad, gives care workers the freedom and flexibility to conduct assessments and capture real-time resident information directly to their EHR system - regardless of where they are. Staff can freely move about the facility, no longer tethered to a desktop computer or having to duplicate efforts with paper transcriptions. This shift not only results in a more efficient way to deliver care, but a marked improvement in the quality of care being delivered.
PointClickCare Mobile MDS is the first long-term care tablet solution designed to address the complexity of MDS 3.0 using the iPad. Combining the ease-of-use of PointClickCare's MDS 3.0 application with the flexibility and affordability of the iPad, PointClickCare Mobile MDS ensures that the most complete, accurate, and timely information is captured at the bedside - improving reimbursements and saving staff valuable time that can be reallocated to dedicated resident care.
PointClickCare Mobile MDS provides the flexibility required to complete MDS 3.0 assessments using affordable hardware. iPad capabilities, coupled with a robust MDS 3.0 software tool, enable nurses to conduct 3.0 interviews at the bedside unencumbered by the limitations of other wired hardware solutions. As a native iPad application, PointClickCare Mobile MDS delivers an enriched user experience not available through a standard web browser - such as a familiar iPad user interface, fast processing speeds, and device-specific features (ie. touch screen gestures, rotation detection, etc.).
PointClickCare Mobile MDS accelerates MDS 3.0 assessment completion. Touch-screen technology, intuitive navigation, and streamlined workflows guide clinical staff through the MDS assessment process. Intelligence in the form of business logic and embedded training tools ensure that assessments are completed free from error.
