SigmaCare Enters into Strategic Partnership with Health Outcomes Worldwide
October 17, 2016
NEW YORK-- (BUSINESS WIRE) --SigmaCare, a leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) company for long term post-acute care (LTPAC) providers, has entered into a strategic partnership with Health Outcomes Worldwide (HOW), one of Canada's top e-health software solution providers. Through this strategic partnership, HOW’s award-winning platform how2trak® Wound Care will be integrated into SigmaCare’s EHR, enabling clinicians to deliver best practice wound care, improve resident outcomes and reduce unnecessary re-hospitalizations. By doing this, providers will be better suited to secure preferred relationships with their care networks.
With an increased focus on tying health care payments to outcomes, quality and performance, health care providers are looking for solutions and partners to help them elevate their level of care and decrease patient risk. In long term post-acute care settings, pressure injuries are considered ‘never events’ which result in large financial penalties and market reputation damage. HOW’s solution – how2trak® Wound Care – supports clinicians at the bedside to deliver best practice care in preventing pressure injuries, or proactively healing a pressure injury at early stages. It also enables clinicians to deliver best practice care for other types of chronic wounds that patients face, such as diabetic foot ulcers, surgical incisions, burns, etc. Current customers of how2trak® Wound Care have seen significant improvements in wound healing times, wound prevalence rates, cost to treat wounds and in the use of best practice care.
By creating an integrated workflow into the LTPAC market’s most complete EHR platform (including care management, revenue cycle management and customer relationship management), providers are now able to leverage the SigmaCare platform to set themselves apart in an increasingly competitive referral market.
“Our customers are looking for innovative ways to help manage wound care,” said Steve Pacicco, CEO of SigmaCare. “As leaders in evidence-based care and clinical intelligence, we looked for a partner that embodied those capabilities and experience. Without a doubt, HOW offers the most robust wound care management solution in the market. 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.”
“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with SigmaCare to offer how2trak® Wound Care to their customers,” said Corrine McIsaac, HOW’s Founder and CEO. “SigmaCare is a leader in the long term post-acute care market, delivering a world class, end-to-end EHR platform.
