PointClickCare Teams with Dorado to Bring Real-Time Insurance Eligibility Verification to Electronic Health Records

PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software provider for senior care, has teamed with Dorado Systems to introduce the industry's first integration of healthcare insurance validation tool within an EHR platform. With this integration, providers will now be able to simplify the coverage process by accessing and retrieving insurance data that will notify them of insurance eligibility changes in real-time.

Providers using PointClickCare can now quickly and efficiently access important insurance data including eligibility, benefits, and co-pays in one easy step, and in real-time. Providers will be able to identify insurance eligibility prior to admission and during stay, save costs by reducing coverage denial rate and delayed reimbursement, eliminate the need to manually transfer census data with automated exporting functionality, and save time by reducing the long periods spent checking resident eligibility.

Managing revenue cycle management is a challenge for both small and large senior care providers across the continuum. While the primary focus of senior care providers is on delivering high quality care, providers can only do so by continually evolving and improving their financial management processes.

“Taking a holistic approach to managing the resident lifecycle is how we’re able to evolve and provide a valuable EHR platform for our customers,” said Dave Wessinger, PointClickCare CTO. “The end goal is to deliver high quality care, and a huge part of that is for providers to effectively manage operational efficiencies.”
