GoldCare Announces AIS Integration

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2013) - GoldCare, the market leader in healthcare management software, is pleased to announce that their solution now integrates with AIS Inc. (Assessment & Intelligence Systems) to support client compliance with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care's requirements for AIS Proficiency Evaluations.

The purpose of the Ministry's mandate is to enhance existing interRAI assessment instrument education in an effort to decrease errors while completing assessments and increase the accuracy of those assessments submitted to the Ministry. As part of the mandate, all disciplines that carry out assessments are required to complete a proficiency evaluation and then maintain that aptitude for accurate documentation annually.

GoldCare's integration with AIS, the worldwide leader in providing eLearning solutions for RAI assessment instruments, supports the Ministry's directive for increased assessment accuracy by providing users of the software with on-demand access to Ministry-approved training materials, to assist with RAI-MDS assessment completion. According to Paul Vermette, COO of AIS Inc., "AIS is very pleased by the integration with the GoldCare system. It provides our clients another way to improve the accuracy of RAI assessments, and get more value from both AIS's and GoldCare's solutions, resulting in better assessments and better outcomes for residents."

Each question within the assessment includes an AIS icon that links directly to information regarding that particular question on the AIS website, providing those who complete assessments in GoldCare with clarity and up-to-date information when conducting an assessment.

"GoldCare's integration with AIS will provide our users with assessment completion help when and where they need it-directly from within the assessment. This added resource will no doubt contribute to our clients' goal to increase the submission success rate of RAI assessments-that's something both GoldCare and AIS can feel good about," commented Paula Hucko, COO of GoldCare.
