As modern technology continues to evolve, so does the need to improve patient and resident outcomes. One such technological innovation that’s making waves in the post-acute care sector is WoundRounds. Developed by Telemedicine Solutions, WoundRounds is an innovative point-of-care wound management and prevention solution designed to empower nurses to deliver improved wound care in less time.
And that advantage in wound management just grew larger, as WoundsRounds has partnered with Experience Care, a renowned provider of long-term EHR software, to integrate its groundbreaking wound care solution with this EHR. Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, needless to say, enhance resident care in long-term care facilities by enabling nurses and other caregivers to provide a higher quality of care, ensuring that vital resident information is recorded, stored, and accessed securely and efficiently.
Needless to say, Experience Care’s partnership with WoundRounds promises to improve long-term care and outcomes for residents with wound care needs. In the sections that follow, we’ll dive deeper into WoundRounds, its functionality, its integration with Experience Care’s EHR, and the impact it’s expected to have on long-term care. But first, let’s look at the role of EHRs in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
Wound Documentation Is Easier Than Ever
In the highly-regulated landscape of long-term care, wound management is a core component of senior care. However, traditional approaches to wound care and wound documentation have often proven to be labor-intensive, with nurses having to chart wounds manually and document treatment plans, which can lead to inefficiencies and inaccuracies.
Enter WoundRounds. Developed by Telemedicine Solutions, WoundRounds is a pioneering software solution designed specifically for wound management and prevention. Its integration into EHR systems, like Experience Care, is an effort to alleviate these challenges and enhance the wound care process.
So how does WoundRounds work, and what sets it apart?
1. Automated wound management
WoundRounds brings ease of use to wound care management, enabling real-time care coordination. With just a handheld device, clinical data and images can be captured at the patient’s bedside to ensure accurate and comprehensive data entry. This enhances wound charting and documentation while providing the ability to track wound progress accurately and in real-time.
2. Streamlined wound treatment and team communication
With WoundRounds, the wound treatment process is simplified and enhanced. The software prompts best-practice treatment solutions, leveraging clinically validated tools like the Braden Scale for predicting pressure ulcer risk and the PUSH Tool for monitoring wound healing. Data, images, and automatic reports are instantly available for review or sharing with the care team via a secure network.
3. Proactive wound prevention
WoundRounds isn’t just about managing wounds. It’s also about preventing them. The software can identify patients at risk before wounds develop, sort patients by overall risk, and highlight specific jeopardizing conditions. The system automates the Braden Scale for predicting pressure ulcer risk and prompts nurses to deliver patient interventions, making prevention an integral part of the care process
4. Comprehensive wound reporting
Quality and reimbursement reports are readily available at the touch of a button with WoundRounds. The system automates documentation, quality reporting, and reimbursement reporting. Both care teams and executives can access standardized and complete reports instantly, ensuring adequate quality assurance and regulatory compliance.
These reporting capabilities also ensure that facilities receive prompt and appropriate payment, which improves the reimbursement process. With WoundRounds, facilities enjoy automatic reporting for quality assurance and regulatory compliance requirements, such as MDS reporting.
