PointClickCare wins major U.S.
Ont. – Mike Wessinger (pictured at left),
President and CEO of Wescom Solutions Inc., has announced that HCR Manor
Care, of Toledo, Ohio, will use Wescom’s PointClickCare On-Demand
long-term care (LTC) software in its 340 skilled nursing and assisted
living facilities throughout the United States.
HCR Manor Care selected the PointClickCare (www.pointclickcare.com)
on-demand software to manage the company’s clinical and financial
information after the completion of a twelve-month pilot project.
Implementation of the full-scale, multi-million dollar project has begun
and is expected to be completed within two years.
PointClickCare’s on-demand delivery model differs from typical software
because the application is delivered as a hosted subscription service.
This enables HCR Manor Care to have an enterprise-wide, integrated
clinical and financial solution without the cost and difficulty of
buying, installing or maintaining any hardware or software.
Said Wessinger: “We are excited to be working with one of the industry’s
most admired companies and expect that working with HCR Manor Care will
continue to fortify our service for multi-facility providers.”
Wessinger further added that, “HCR Manor Care’s choice of PointClickCare
validates the appeal of our on-demand delivery model with the largest
companies in the industry. Now, organizations ranging from a single
facility to the largest multi-facility corporations are realizing the
benefits of on-demand software delivery.”
Murry Mercier, Director of Information Services of HCR Manor Care,
stated, “Use of Wescom’s on-demand software delivery model supports the
cost-effective delivery of functionality to our facilities. Web-based,
centralized architecture allows us to take advantage of the benefits of
technology without the burden of support, focusing our attentions on
satisfying business requirements.”
Wescom Solutions Inc. is a leading provider of on-demand clinical,
financial, marketing and quality improvement software to the Long-Term

serving providers of all sizes since 2000. PointClickCare is used by
