PointClickCare - Navigate the New Realities of Healthcare

The healthcare ecosystem is riddled with blind spots when it comes to data. These blind spots and lack of visibility result in compromised outcomes, creating vulnerabilities particularly when a patient leaves the hospital. While payers and their claims data offer patient treatment information, actual outcomes resulting from treatment are more challenging to document. By providing access to deep and expansive amounts of electronic health record (EHR) data, life sciences companies are able to explore tangible benefits to their therapies, offering a holistic view of the patient narrative for the first time in the history of care. With close to 200 million patient records, PointClickCare is uniquely positioned to provide life sciences companies with outcomes-based evidence – such as, longitudinal patient records, daily health outcomes, monthly minimum dataset assessments, and more. By equipping companies with outcomes-based information, organizations gain an unobstructed view of the impact their therapies and treatments in the long-term, rather than just immediate treatment insights. “In fact, PointClickCare has made a meaningful impact on patients’ lives by making positive changes in healthcare services that directly impact their quality of care,” begins Jeff Wessinger, VP & GM of Life Sciences, PointClickCare.

PointClickCare’s expansive data enables commercial and clinical companies to deliver products to the market faster than ever before for a number of reasons. First, analysis of rich data sets allows companies to bypass placebo-based double-blind clinical trials by conducting retrospective studies. Second, evidence-based outcomes also enable life sciences companies to see the impact of therapeutics beyond treatment, eliminating the need for lengthy clinical trials. Finally, connecting pharma companies to EHR systems allows caregivers direct access to specific treatment plans, directly targeting care and improving outcomes. In addition, PointClickCare’s life sciences solution helps eliminate data silos in order to create a connected care network that is powered by insights. Whether it’s a drug utilization review (DUR) study or a patient journey study, PointClickCare’s data can serve as a critical resource to gain insights into vulnerable populations—demographics that often experience complex touchpoints across the care continuum. 

PointClickCare’s Life Science data initiative provides insights to healthcare organizations, government agencies and life sciences companies with de-identified real-world data specifically focused on representation of older adults – a population often considered to be at higher risk for severe, chronic illnesses. The company helps providers across the care continuum access the insights they need to navigate the realities of value-based healthcare. Supporting the entire care continuum, PointClickCare aims to be the most comprehensive care collaboration platform by harnessing the power of real-time data running between hospitals and post-acute care systems to provide seamless care transitions. Moreover, by providing data in real-time, care teams can analyze and evaluate their approach, pivoting as necessary. Since the populations served are complex and vulnerable, PointClickCare partners with organizations and academia to leverage data and uncover relevant findings or associations to further improve patient outcomes.

In 2000, PointClickCare was co-founded by Dave Wessinger, and his brother, Mike Wessinger, pioneering healthcare’s digital transformation and driving improved outcomes for seniors and care teams through technology. Today, PointClickCare is one of Canada’s most admired corporate cultures and employs over 2,100 employees who currently serve over 27,000 care providers and 2,700 hospitals, establishing PointClickCare as one of the largest cloud-based healthcare platforms in North America.  After two decades of major accomplishments – including partnerships, acquisitions, product integrations, and more – PointClickCare has grown to become one of Canada’s largest private software companies, serving over 27,00 Senior Care facilities and more 2,700 hospitals, and across North America.  Having amassed a significant database of patient therapy and treatment information, life science companies, industry advocates, and government agencies can tap into real world insights from real world data.

With an increasingly aging population, the need for technology reform to make healthcare work better for the senior population is more important than ever. PointClickCare is building upon a foundation to become a centralized hub for senior health data – which will continue to be increasingly valuable. “Through unique insights into data, technology for disease management, and unification of the life sciences community and LTPAC providers and beyond, we aim to dramatically improve both the quality of care and life for all. As our capabilities continue to advance, we are able to identify genetic markers with specific drugs and therapies, resulting in a more targeted, individualized approach to care. It is this person-centered approach to care—one that is fueled by anonymized data—that will drive healthcare change for the greater population,” concludes Wessinger.
