Using a digital wound management to improve outcomes for people with deteriorating wounds
In this session, we will discuss how the use of data from our digital wound management system has been used to improve outcomes for people who have deteriorating wounds, presenting both a technological and clinical perspective on the use of technology in this way.
We have implemented ‘Senior Reviews’ in our Lower Limb and Podiatry Services, where groups of clinicians come together to review wounds that we have identified from both data and concerns raised by clinicians that a wound is deteriorating.
Our initial evidence shows that this review contributes towards a greater percentage of patients moving onto a healing trajectory, compared to areas where such reviews are not currently taking place. Furthermore, we will demonstrate how this process can lead to efficiency savings in the delivery of wound care.
