Mississauga, ON (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
PointClickCare, provider of the market leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform for the long-term and post-acute care industries, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Meal Metrics, a leading provider of nutritional management software for long-term care. The company also announced the immediate availability of the Meal Metrics web-based nutritional management solution, to be sold under the brand name PointClickCare Tray Card. PointClickCare Tray Card provides long-term care facilities with organization-wide access to resident nutritional care information, automated updates, and the flexibility for care givers to adjust and modify nutritional management at a single point of control.
PointClickCare Tray Card enables critical nutritional care information, such as allergies or special diets, to be aggregated and presented in a clear and accurate electronic format. Providing caregivers with this definitive view of vital care conditions significantly reduces the risk of manual transcription errors that can lead to adverse events or affect the quality of care provided to residents.
“As Meal Metrics and PointClickCare are both in the business of improving quality of care, this acquisition opportunity was very compelling,” said Mike Wessinger, CEO of PointClickCare. "We are excited to have Meal Metrics join the PointClickCare family and look forward to continuing to deliver the best-in-class products and services that have been the key drivers of our growth and success.”
The addition of the Meal Metrics business to the PointCickCare portfolio further increases its market leadership position in solutions designed for the care continuum and will offer new opportunities to extend the reach and adoption of their EHR solutions among long-term and post-acute care providers.
“PointClickCare provides an exceptional business and cultural fit for our company and all of our stakeholders,” said Garth Smith, President, Meal Metrics. “This acquisition presents our customers with an exciting new opportunity to leverage expertise in the development, delivery and successful adoption of Electronic Health Record technology from the industry’s leader, PointClickCare.”
