It prints in color or in black and white, and the advanced technology ensures that no ink is wasted. It is also compatible with the everyday printer and packs in all resident notes onto a single, printable page.

Point of Care Warnings & Acknowledgements

Never miss a warning alert again! Our POC is designed to ensure your staff sees every warning and important data with our pop-up alerts. When your staff logs into the POC system and sees a resident’s charts in the system—a pop-up will appear. It will show who is logged in and using the NetSolutions system and show important resident warnings.


Once the warning pops up, the user must acknowledge the alert. This makes it almost impossible for your staff to miss important alerts! Our system also tracks every acknowledgment and change made within the system. Making it easier for your auditors to view each login, see what care your staff provides, and whether they have missed anything.


If a warning is no longer needed, you simply deactivate the warning by turning off the toggle. You can also set expiration dates and set how often you want the pop-up to show. And because everything is tracked in the audit feature, nothing is missed.

Advanced Point of Care Reporting


NetSolutions’ Point of Care offers advanced reporting capabilities. It can improve care outcomes, streamline critical processes, and yield accurate reimbursements.

Point of Care reporting tool
Point of Care POC Charting Reporting Overview

Want to know who documented what in every category? Our new and improved reporting feature makes navigation a breeze between residents and users.

Examples include:

  • Visual Indicators: Show shift confirmation and incomplete documentation reports. Our indicators also highlight missing entries to ensure data integrity and remediate oversights.
  • KPI-Driven Dashboards: Ensure your facility has optimized care plans, can monitor resident activity (meal intake, fluid intake, and bathing patterns), and expedite residents’ progress rates.
  • Resident Maintenance Reports: Provide your staff with the tools to complete the required documentation before discharge.
  • MDS 3.0 Item Report: Achieve financial and operational success in PDPM.

POC Charting for MDS 3.0, ADLs, and PDPM Payment Rates

NetSolutions’ Point of Care can capture data and calculate totals for many MDS 3.0 items. It can also import them straight to the NetSolutions’ MDS 3.0 software. Used alongside our pre-loaded buttons for correlations, your items are ready to go in eight MDS 3.0 sections, including:

  • ADLs for MDS 3.0 Section G
  • Section GG
  • Section C
  • Section H
  • Section D
  • Section E
  • Section M
  • Section O

There’s more! Our POC Charting also calculates the totals for MDS 3.0 responses using the collected data from the point of care. It exports them directly to NetSolutions’ MDS 3.0 software, making it easy and simple.


The software is pre-loaded with correlations to eight MDS sections. So, you can set up additional correlations between POC items and almost all MDS 3.0 items. These easy-to-use tools assist you in setting up POC buttons that will export responses.

Pre-Loaded With Correlations

NetSolutions POC Charting is pre-loaded with correlations to these MDS 3.0 items:

  • ADLs – MDS 3.0 Section G – G0110 A thru J, G0120
  • Functional Abilities – MDS 3.0 Section GG
  • Cognitive – MDS 3.0 Section C – C0700, C1000
  • Mood Observation – MDS 3.0 Section D0500A1 – D0500J2
  • Toileting – MDS 3.0 Section H0200C, H0300, H0400, H0500
  • Behaviors – MDS 3.0 Section E – E0100, E0200, E0800, E0900
  • Skin Conditions – MDS 3.0 Section M – M1200 A, B, C
  • Pain – MDS 3.0 Section J – O800 A, B, C, D
  • Therapy – MDS 3.0 Section O – O400 A, B, C
  • Restorative Nursing – MDS 3.0 Section O – O500 A thru J

Your team will love using our data entry system. It has a user-friendly interface, simple navigation, and helpful icons. Another great feature is the language component that paraphrases MDS 3.0 data. This takes the hard work away from your staff by saving responses. Then, it color-codes them to show which items have been completed.


By making POC charting easier, caregivers document more information more often, reducing the risk of missing important data, such as a 1-person assist during the day but a 2-person assist on the night shift. This results in more accurate ADLs, a significant component of PDPM scoring. A one-point difference in an ADL score can mean a loss of $10 to $40 per day/per resident in payment by Medicare Part A and by Medicaid in several states.


Point of Care Charting can record multiple occurrences in a shift and gives you the ability to view all entries as well as add and strike entries as appropriate, along with the reason for the change. Time/date and the user is recorded automatically. These functions help in capturing the highest level of ADLs.

Tailor Your POC Charting Data with User-Defined Buttons and Icons

Set up user-defined buttons, complete with graphics and labels, to capture items per your facility’s preferences. Logical tools simplify the process of defining a button, including timeframe, language, correlations to MDS 3.0 and Vitals, the response format (yes/no, single response, multiple choice), and any conditional responses. You can generate reports on data captured through user-defined buttons.


POC gives you additional control over data collected with the ability to set items as “required.” Required items are color-coded, showing caregivers who are required and showing at a glance whether required items have been captured. You can also further customize your POC system with graphic images that can be added to buttons in addition to text labels and text in other languages; the software is delivered in Spanish.

Capture Data in Spanish and Other Languages

Increase accuracy by capturing data in your caregivers’ preferred language. The sample above shows ADLs in Spanish. You can set up the language preference according to each caregiver’s profile, which displays automatically when they log in.

Efficient Data Entry Saves Time

By making data entry quick and easy NetSolutions POC encourages caregivers to chart completely.

Point of Care skin, hygiene, and body check

Features that enhance efficiency include:

  • Automatic Saves – Just click your response and move to the next
  • Document the same type of care for multiple residents in one session – Stay on a topic page, such as weight or morning snack consumption, and select the next resident
  • Support your facility’s workflow – You can enter responses in the order you prefer
  • Set Up Questions – To require data entry for responses different from the default

Selecting Residents for POC Charting

NetSolutions POC Charting gives you flexibility in building lists of residents to include in a session. You can chart for every resident for every shift.

Point of Care Resident Selection

Filtering the list is easy and includes:

  • Each resident’s assessment schedules for Medicare PPS, Medicare OBRA, Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage plans
  • For all shifts/all residents, as a mechanism to manage daily resident conditions
  • By location/station
  • For individual residents who need monitoring for specific needs
  • To identify trends and check on outcomes of Quality Assurance activities

By MDS Schedule

MDS Coordinators can see when functional abilities are required based on their admission and discharge dates.


The Benefit Sensitive Fields report gives MDS Coordinators an overall view of a resident’s MDS 3.0 responses on items used to calculate PDPM scores. To view different scenarios, MDS Coordinators can change dates and view the corresponding changes in responses to assist in selecting the most beneficial Assessment Reference Date (ARD).

Hardware and Specifications

NetSolutions® POC gives providers a choice of hardware. The software runs on wall-mounted touchscreen kiosks as well as Windows desktops, laptops, and tablets. The requirements for kiosks include Windows compatibility with 2g RAM and IE10 or higher. It also requires an administrator to approve access to configure the devices, load the ActiveX print control, and modify IE settings.

Point of Care Software Options

With NetSolutions, you have a choice of vendors for point-of-care charting. We offer you the NetSolutions POC application and interfaces to specialist vendors, CareTracker, and AccuNurse.

Point-of-Care Software Application

The NetSolutions Point of Care application runs on PCs and wall-mounted kiosks to give your facility control over hardware expenses. Data collected at the point of care generates totals that are exported to NetSolutions MDS 3.0 software for responses to specific MDS 3.0 items. The software also can use the data collected to calculate PDPM scores before MDS 3.0 completion and billing.

NetSolutions Point-of-Care solution provides significant benefits to Long-Term and Post-Acute Care providers by improving performance in:

  • Accuracy of data used for MDS 3.0
  • Speed of MDS completion
  • Accuracy of ADL charting for appropriate PDPM scores
  • Communication of resident status – a direct path from caregiver to authorized staff
  • Quality of care by reporting problems and providing data to measure QA activities

Point of Care Integrations

AccuNurse Integration

AccuNurse uses structured voice-recognition technology for real-time documentation of care. Nursing staff can hear a resident’s care plan at any time, including their assignments and real-time updates. They can document what care is delivered through their headsets and discreetly page fellow staff members.

With AccuNurse, direct-care staff access individualized care plan interventions for instructions, such as “turn and reposition every two hours.” Then, as caregivers walk to the next room, they chart the assistance simply by speaking into their headsets.

Privacy is maintained by AccuNurse’s structured content that asks for yes/no responses and uses room numbers instead of names.

Changes in resident conditions are communicated in real time via automated care plan updates.

Point-of-care charting prevents end-of-shift charting with its potential for error and memory lapses.

By simplifying charting, AccuNurse encourages staff to chart all the care provided and ensures facilities receive full payment from Medicare and Medicaid in case-mix states.

AccuNurse can eliminate:

  • Paper charting of ADLs, vitals, and care plan interventions
  • Pages for assistance that others can hear
  • Leaving a resident unattended while seeking assistance
  • Searching for a resident’s care plan interventions
  • Risk of CNA not having the most current information
  • Under coding of ADLs for Medicare and Medicaid payment

Experience Care’s interface with AccuNurse exports resident demographic information to AccuNurse. Learn more about AccuNurse at their Website: www.accunurse.com
