“The trained nurse has become one of the great blessings of humanity, taking a place beside the physician and the priest,” said William Osler, a Canadian physician who is one of the four founders of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

You’re not alone if you don’t know anyone who entered the healthcare profession so he or she could spend more time at a computer.

Our nurses and other staff members at Christian Healthcare Center are here to spend time with residents.

That’s why we’re so excited to announce that our new computers and software system are up and running!

The new PointClickCare software system, which manages our medical records and patient health information, has already been getting rave reviews from staff. The software is now running on many of the new computers at CHCC.

We’re particularly excited about this system because it’s the result of an initiative that was started on the floor, with CHCC staff members. They let our management team know that nurses and other staff members were spending too much time waiting on a slow, aging computer system.

With that concern in hand, our administration took time to identify a solution and then brought that before the CHCC Board of Directors. The board was fully behind the endeavor, approving the technology upgrade and ensuring it could be put into practice as soon as possible.
