When patients don’t receive best practice treatment,
it’s normal for their wounds to often persist for months
or years on end, requiring copious amounts of time,
resources, and professional attention - all contributing
to a very high price tag.
Did you know 20% of residents who have been in SNF for 2 years will have at least 1 pressure ulcer? Or that skin and wound allegations are the second leading cause for litigation in SNF?
These realities can be extremely costly to any Long Term Care facility... but not if you have the tools!
We know that when front line healthcare providers are alerted to patient-specific best practices in real time, wound complications can often be prevented from ever occurring in the first place, and if they do occur they can be healed faster and more cost efficiently by enabling best practice. That's where pur wound care management software, how2trak Wound Care, comes into play!
Long term care facilities using how2trak Wound Care save between 33-36% in Human Resource costs. They also see an additional 15% savings in product costs!
Speaking to treatment outcomes, organizations have also seen a 42% reduction in overall wound prevalence; a 25% reduction in pressure ulcer prevalence; and a 50% reduction in the prevalence of skin tears.
These are just few highlighted improvements our how2trak Wound Care app can bring to your long term care facility!
