When wounds are poorly monitored in post-acute care, there can be significant impacts made to patient outcomes as well as the quality of the organization. Documentation can be incomplete or inaccurate, workflows can be disrupted and slowed down, and quality scores could be affected—not to mention risk of litigation or even serious health issues for the patient.

Here are five key reasons the right innovative wound management technology can bring ROI to your organization by helping to measure and monitor wounds for care in the home.

  1. Empower clinicians to work at the top of their license.

When less specialized, lower-cost nursing resources can be utilized to complete more in-person wound visits, frontline clinicians can dedicate more time to the complex patient care they were trained to provide—ultimately leading to more satisfied staff and increased retention.

  1. Reduce cost of wound treatment materials.

Wounds that are healed faster can have a significant impact on treatment costs, as less supplies are needed to treat. Faster healing can also lead to better quality scores.

  1. Increase wound patient referrals.

As your organization experiences more positive wound care outcomes, such as improved healing and hospitalization rates, promoting those statistics can strengthen relationships with referral partners and help lead to increased referrals/

  1. Provide care with more empathy.

With clinician burnout increasingly common in post-acute care, digital tools (or lack thereof) can make or break the clinician experience. An empathetic approach to technology—ease of navigation, interface design, etc.—prioritizes the user and allows clinicians to provide care with empathy.

  1. Streamline the capture of reliable wound measurements.

One of the greatest challenges in wound care is consistency in measurements and image capture. With the right technology, clinicians can automate wound management by capturing true dimensions and depth with the simple snap of a photo and AI capabilities.

Poor wound management in post-acute care can be detrimental to patients, referral partnerships, and your bottom line. Request a demo today to see for yourself how MatrixCare and its partners create innovative solutions for wound management and better patient outcomes.
