SmartWoundCare is an interactive application running on an Android Smartphone or tablet. SmartWoundCare allows healthcare workers to replace paper-based charting with electronic charting for chronic wounds, specifically pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, arterial leg ulcers, and diabetic foot ulcers. SmartWoundCare is intended for use by healthcare workers caring for homecare clients, personal care home residents, and hospital patients with chronic wounds.
Electronic charting can facilitate a higher level of compliance in wound care and documentation of care, and improve both the patient’s and the caregiver’s experience in providing care.
SmartWoundCare facilitates telehealth: The app allows data sharing and data transfer between multiple healthcare providers, allowing for more timely consultation and reducing the need for patients with mobility difficulties to attend consultations in person.
SmartWoundCare automatically provides wound histories: Healthcare workers using SmartWoundCare can see automatically-generated wound histories, in both text and graphic form, including photographs of the wound. This gives a complete picture of wound progress over time.
