Hoffman Estates, IL (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
Provena Life Connections, which provides senior healthcare services and WoundRounds®, the point-of-care wound management software and prevention solution, were featured in a clinical study on wound care published by the medical journal, Ostomy Wound Management.
In the peer-reviewed medical journal article, WoundRounds® was found to increase wound management effectiveness by standardizing wound documentation and improving communication among caregivers at Provena Heritage Village, a skilled nursing facility in Kankakee, Illinois. Provena nursing staff also found WoundRounds to be easier to use than conventional wound documentation systems.
“This published study validates what we’ve been hearing from customers,” says Mike Diamond, CEO of WoundRounds. “WoundRounds users report that the point-of-care system empowers nurses to deliver better wound care in less time, which results in lower costs,” adds Diamond.
Beth Florczak, MS, RN, WCC, RAC-CT, is the Director of Quality and Clinical Excellence at Provena Life Connections and the principal investigator in the study. Florczak says, “Conducting this study demonstrated to Provena that WoundRounds helped our clinicians to sustainably reduce pressure ulcers. As a result, we use the WoundRounds system across multiple Provena facilities.”
