The series: We look at decision makers among Canada’s mid-sized companies who took successful action in a competitive global digital economy.
Mike Wessinger says he can recall exactly when his company, PointClickCare, reached a business-changing decision point.
“We knew there were other companies in Canada and the United States who could do what we were doing. So we said: Let’s do it differently by putting our business in the cloud,” he says.
Mr. Wessinger is president and, with his brother Dave, co-founder of the Mississauga-based company that provides the cloud-based software that underpins hospitals and nursing homes across North America – an industry known as long-term, postacute care (LTPAC).
The company offers its clients a portfolio of cloud-based software and services designed from the ground up to help health and long-term providers manage the complex requirements of senior care, such as electronic health records and business and revenue management. Using the cloud enables PointClickCare to upgrade clients’ software instantly, so they can keep up with technology that changes regularly.
