Mississauga, Ont.-based PointClickCare is opening its own developer hub in downtown Toronto, at the southwest corner of King St. and York St.

The new hub will support the development of the company’s SaaS products, which are now used by over 17,000 healthcare facilities in North America. PointClickCare said this office will house 100 product developer and engineer positions, adding to its 1,500-strong team. The company, which has built cloud-based solutions for the senior care industry, said it hopes to tap into Toronto’s “world-class” innovation ecosystem, as well as its tech talent.

“Toronto is a world-class city and is incredibly well-positioned to support the talent needs of small and large technology firms.”

“The LTPAC [long-term and post-acute care] sector faces a number of ongoing challenges that can only be solved with innovative technology and software solutions,” said Mike Wessinger, CEO of PointClickCare. “We’re confident that Toronto’s world-class talent and innovation will further strengthen PointClickCare’s ability to develop meaningful solutions that meet the unique challenges of senior care providers.”
 

PointClickCare’s cloud-based software was created for the LTPAC market to offer care delivery management, financial management, and access to patient data. The company received a $186 million investment from San Francisco-based Dragoneer Investment Ground in early 2018. Dragoneer also invested $111 million in the company in 2017. In September 2018, PointClickCare opened an office in Kitchener-Waterloo to house the company’s software engineers.

“Toronto is a world-class city and is incredibly well-positioned to support the talent needs of small and large technology firms alike,” said Razor Suleman, CEO and co-founder of Elevate. “I’m proud to be able to welcome PointClickCare to the Toronto business and technology community.”

PointClickCare ranked 15 on Glassdoor’s top 25 best places to work in 2018 for Canada. It also acquired Idaho-based QuickMAR, a medical management tool PointClickCare said would help its clients scale their resident care strategies, earlier this year. The company is now looking to hire 100 additional developers and engineers ahead of the office opening.

“We’re excited to be able to open the doors to our latest Developer Hub and provide opportunities that will keep Toronto’s top talent on Canadian soil,” said Dave Wessinger, president of PointClickCare.
