Primary Wound Care Specialists, a provider of wound care prevention and therapeutic services, has chosen ExpressMD Solutions Electronic House Call (EHC) remote patient monitoring solution, as part of an expanded pilot program for wound care management.
ExpressMD claimed that the EHC remote patient monitoring solution enables homecare providers to monitor patients remotely which allows for fewer in-person doctor visits or emergency room visits, while providing more frequent updates of patient data to healthcare providers, which reduces costs and allows for improved patient care.
Additionally, homecare providers can use remote patient monitoring to oversee patients who require wound care management or for those who have chronic diseases such as Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, Hypertension and Sleep Apnea.
ExpressMD said that the EHC remote patient monitoring solution improves patient care and reduces costs by delivering results to healthcare providers securely via the Web without requiring an in-person physician or hospital visit.
Apart from this EHC is also expected to provide patients with online wound care or disease management education. Healthcare providers can view each patient’s statistics and make adjustments to care plans online, which is then communicated to the patient via the EHC device.
Ronald Mills, managing director of ExpressMD Solutions, said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Primary Wound Care Specialists to enhance their existing program with the EHC solution.”
Andy Castellanos, president of Primary Wound Care Specialists, said: “The Primary Wound Care Specialist Program is delivered through a network of 16 clinics in Florida and includes a program for in-home patient management.
“The contribution of the ExpressMD EHC solution is expected to give our clinical team a new and exciting method of providing the necessary information to the various healthcare providers who collaborate on our patient care progress.
“EHC is expected to also allow us to more effectively track and characterise the day-to-day progress made by a patient between doctor visits.”
