Mobile Wound Care
Wound care is a huge part of home and aged care services. With pay-for-performance on the horizon, and a growing aging population, home health agencies must find a way to more effectively provide wound care, decrease visits, and lower medical supply costs.
Using the latest mobile, web-based technology, our Mobile Wound Care solution enables health care providers to quickly and easily collaborate with wound specialists to implement consistent, evidence-based care while at the patient’s side.
Instant Access to Wound Care Specialists from Point of Care
With the Mobile Wound Care application, care providers use their handheld mobile devices such as tablets and PDA’s, to enter assessments of patient wounds, update wound care visit forms, take color digital photos, and transmit the information real-time to wound specialists or doctors via a secured mobile connection.
The wound specialist is alerted and can access the record and prescribe treatment while the care provider is still at the patient’s bedside. This brings better care to the patient reducing discomfort and costly travel to a clinic or hospital, while improving average heal time and care provider productivity.
More Effective Wound Treatment for Patients
Mobile Wound Care is database-driven, tracking treatments and collecting evidence-based best practices and standards which are used to:
- Improve accuracy of diagnoses
- Reduce heal times
- Avoid unnecessary surgical treatment
- Decrease admissions to emergency room and acute care
- Reduce length of stay at acute care site
Increased Productivity for Care Providers
By providing instant access to wound data, Mobile Wound Care eliminates the need to make multiple calls and visits to the patient’s home. By making “virtual house calls” clinicians can see more patients and be more efficient, providing a lower cost of treatment per wound profile.
Streamlined Business Practices for Home Health Agencies
Mobile Wound Care enables secure, efficient and effective collaboration between health organizations and home health providers, by providing the ability to:
- Measure and track effectiveness of wound care treatment
- Expand access to scarce specialized resources
- Decrease travel time for care providers and patients
- Lessen time spent on redundant data entry
- Reduce costs while increasing productivity
