SigmaCare vs PointClickCare

SigmaCare vs PointClickCare

Long-term care, also referred to as LTC, comprises of a wide variety of support and care services offered to those who need proper care and assistance and cannot care for themselves independently. This includes senior care as well. Many agencies that offer long-term care and senior care rely on paper for their daily operations, which includes paper files, time sheets, and more. But, there are also agencies that have gone a step further and use software, which makes their job a lot less complicated by way of electronic documentation.

In addition to gaining easy access to and maintaining documents electronically, the software suites also benefit the agencies as well as the individuals they serve. Despite the many challenges faced by long-term care providers, the use of a long-term care and senior care software is considered to yield operational and clinical benefits. Some of the major positives you can enjoy by using a software suite for your long-term care providing company include the following:

  • Crucial information will be readily available at the point of care.
  • Medical errors will be much lesser.
  • Improved patient safety.
  • Improved compliance to regulatory standards.
  • Augmented information exchange and communication between the different parties involved, like the patients, physicians, pharmacies, staff, etc.

SigmaCare and PointClickCare are currently the two most famous software suites in the industry that are being used widely. Here is more information about the two services.
