The types of information captured during the clinical point of care documentation include physical signs and symptoms, computed and analyzed that point to the communicant's healthcare needs, goals, and the type of care they may need from healthcare providers.

Mobile devices and tablets provide accessibility to the Electronic Medical Record during the clinical point of care documentation process.Such documentations provides evidence regarding safe, effective and ethical Christian care needed for healthcare institutions and professionals. Furthermore, accurate documents provide a rigorous foundation for conducting appropriate quality of care analysis that can facilitate better health outcomes for patients. It is important to note that electronic formats of clinical point of care documentation are not intended to replace existing doctor's care or clinical processes but to enhance the current clinical point of care documentation process.

Point of Care also enables healthcare practitioners to use decision support tools to detect medication prescription errors and override non-standard medication regimes that may cause fatalities. Furthermore, embedded algorithms may be chosen for people of certain age and weight to further support the clinical point of care interaction.
