When used in conjunction with other long-term care applications, point-of-care technology offers several advantages. Among these advantages are:
- Quicker access to treatments – This makes it possible for diseases and other medical disorders to be quickly diagnosed and treated.
- Shorter hospital stays for patients – Point-of-care technology speeds up diagnostics and treatments for hospital patients. Both the patient and the hospital profit enormously from this since it reduces hospitalization and frees up beds for more seriously ill patients.
- Less paperwork – All medical data is electronically saved. Additionally, their procedures are quicker and better structured.
- Improved communication – When used in conjunction with other nursing home software systems, a point-of-care system enables improved information flow between the nursing home and outside providers. This avoids medical information from being miscommunicated.
