PointClickCare Empowers Its Senior Living Customers for Long-Term Success

Leading EHR Vendor Discusses New Report on Employee Recruitment and
Retention at Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference, Spotlighting
Customers’ Successes

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PointClickCare,
the leading cloud-based software platform for the senior care continuum,
understands the unique needs of its senior living customers and
continuously evolves its industry-leading platform to cover the full
spectrum of senior care. Over the next three days, PointClickCare team
members will be at the Argentum
Senior Living Executive Conference
in Denver, Colorado (booth #715)
to demonstrate how its senior living offering can help position care
providers for long-term success.

“The senior care industry is in a period of transition, faced with new
challenges and new opportunities affecting providers in all areas of
their business,” says Travis Palmquist, vice president and general
manager, Senior Living at PointClickCare. “What providers aren’t
realizing is that technology is really the underpinning to success, and
with the right tools in place, technology can be a differentiator.”

According to a recent survey sponsored by PointClickCare, 184 senior
living providers cited staff continuity, staff recruitment, and staff
retention as the top areas of concern for their business.

“These findings are not surprising as we are seeing a looming shortage
of positions, as well as high turnover in the senior care industry,”
adds Palmquist. “Historically, the industry has been well behind the
curve with respect to adopting technology, but technology can help fuel
service transformation in simple ways – starting with staff.”

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, millennials will
comprise 75 percent of the American workforce by 2030. Attracting this
demographic will be a critical component for senior care providers to
address the needs of this growing cohort of residents. Implementing an
electronic health record (EHR) – as opposed to maintaining outdated,
paper-based documentation workflows — excites millennials, who are known
for being difficult to attract to the industry, and even harder to
retain.

Technology has the ability to help care providers work smarter and more
efficiently, which in turn is helping organizations ensure success
across the entire business, and Thrive
Senior Living
is no exception. Thrive recognizes the importance of
technology and has recently chosen PointClickCare as its technology
partner. With the right platform and tools in place across its
communities, Thrive, along with a growing number of senior living
providers, are leveraging the PointClickCare platform to help them
remain focused on what’s important – the health of its residents and its
business.
