SigmaCare, Health Outcomes Worldwide partner for wound care

SigmaCare is joining forces with Canadian e-health software provider Health Outcomes Worldwide (HOW) to improve wound care technology.

HOW’s award-winning platform how2trak Wound Care will be integrated into SigmaCare’s electronic health record (EHR) for long-term care and assisted living facilities. Clinicians will have access to deliver best practice wound care, improve resident outcomes and ultimately reduce unnecessary re-hospitalizations.

“Our customers are looking for innovative ways to help manage wound care,” said Steve Pacicco, CEO of SigmaCare in a press release. “Wound care management solutions are essential to enabling clinicians to deliver holistic patient care, and by embedding this solution within SigmaCare’s EHR workflow, our customers will be able to provide a higher level of care. We are excited about this newest addition to our expansive partner network and giving customers an easy-to-use, evidence-based solution that enables them to achieve their goal of delivering high-quality care.”

Pressure ulcers are “never events” and can result in monetary penalties and market reputation damage for providers. How2trak Wound Care can help clinicians decrease wound prevalence rates, improve healing times and reduce treatment cost as well as deliver best practice care for other kinds of chronic wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, surgical incisions and burns.

SigmaCare works with senior and post-acute care providers to offer a comprehensive technology platform. HOW offers desktop and mobile e-health tools for hospitals, long-term care, home care and ambulatory clinics to use in real time.
