Canadian cloud-based healthcare software provider PointClickCare has partnered with Sound Physicians to offer an integrated virtual health solution to long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) providers in the US.

Sound Physicians is a national physician partner to hospitals, post-acute providers, physician groups, and payers in the country.

PointClickCare Partnerships and Strategic Alliances vice-president Marino Cherubin said: “We selected Sound Physicians because of its reputation for clinical excellence, unrivaled scale, and investment in the creation and delivery of virtual health services and its commitment to the patient experience.

“We’re looking forward to working with an organization that is an innovator in value-based care and believe the program will have the added benefit of better alignment to hospital referral networks, physician groups, and even Institutional Special Needs Plans (I-SNPs).”

Under this partnership, the two companies aim to offer full potential of virtual health in the post-acute setting.

PointClickCare and Sound Physicians’ joint solution will address the mission-critical needs of post-acute providers for clinical care improvement.

For the past two decades, PointClickCare has been developing technology solutions for skilled nursing facilities and senior living communities to facilitate better connectivity between providers and their care teams to benefit their patients.

Sound Physicians has more than 500 hospital-based programmes across the 42 US states, which are claimed to improve clinical outcomes.

Sound Physicians Telemedicine CEO Brendan McNamara said: “We have proven that telemedicine transforms care delivery and improves clinical and financial outcomes for post-acute providers.

“By fully integrating access to our physicians into the existing PointClickCare workflows, we are confident that these benefits will grow exponentially.

“This partnership aligns with Sound Physician’s mission to improve quality, satisfaction, and financial performance in healthcare delivery.”
