PointClear Solutions is a Brentwood, Tennessee-based software developer which was launched in 2006 at the Innovation Depot in Birmingham. The company specializes in individual health record management software and is an approved consultant for Microsoft's "HealthVault" program. A spinoff of PointClear called Gazoont, recommended targeted health information for organizations to send to individual patients.

PointClear was founded in 2006 with offices in Huntsville and Birmingham. The company's founding president and CEO was Blaine Anderson. Other partners included Donnie Gooch, Neal Evans and Lee Farabaugh. Evans and Farabaugh are both veterans of Birmingham's Intermark Group.

David Karabinos succeeded Anderson as CEO 2009, the same year the company opened its first Nashville office. PointClear moved their headquarters from Huntsville to Atlanta, Georgia in 2013, "due to the large footprint of health IT companies and the breadth of academic and technology resources it offers." With reference to Georgia's business recruitment efforts, Karabinos said, "[h]aving the chance to be in a state that understands healthcare made a difference." The company acquired Worry Free Labs of New York that same year.

Later PointClear Solutions opened a "Nashville Innovation and Development Center" in downtown Nashville, Tennessee before moving to new offices in Brentwood. It has since closed its Birmingham office.
