Because WoundRounds and Third Eye Health enable anytime access to healthcare providers, we are better able to treat our residents in place and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations.
Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) January 04, 2017
Avalon Healthcare Group, which manages senior care services in nearly 40 communities, has selected WoundRounds and Third Eye Health to automate wound care management and provide telemedicine for residents with wounds. The TeleWound program provides residents 24/7 access to high quality, specialized medical consultants, and is designed to improve care, reduce cost and eliminate unnecessary hospitalizations.
WoundRounds mobile technology enables nurses to provide better wound care by capturing wound assessments at bedside, prompting for preventive interventions, and standardizing documentation and reporting. According to Michelle Marquez, Vice President of Clinical Services, “At Avalon, our mission is to provide the very best in care. With WoundRounds, we not only enhance the customer experience for our wound care residents, but we also make caregiving easier for our clinical team. Our nursing staff appreciates this commitment to wound care excellence and their employee satisfaction.”
Third Eye Health’s technology turns the nurse’s mobile device into remote triage and consultation system for conducting 24/7 secure messaging and telehealth visits. Using the Third Eye platform and medical care teams, nurses can collaborate with other healthcare professionals to expedite care, including on-site and real-time remote consultations for residents.
“We’re excited to provide the best care, even on nights and weekends, through the remote capabilities of the Third Eye Health technology platform, says Billie Jo Nutter, President & CEO of Avalon Brighton Rehabilitation. “Because this technology enables anytime access to healthcare providers, we are better able to treat our residents in place and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations,” adds Nutter.
“At Avalon, we are proud to partner with WoundRounds and Third Eye Health to improve the quality of life of residents and the dedicated staff who care for them,” says Nutter.
