EHR company announces Canadian wound care partnership
SigmaCare has entered into a strategic partnership with Health Outcomes Worldwide, a Canadian e-health software solution company.
SigmaCare EHR users will be able to access HOW's how2trak® Wound Care, which will be integrated into the records.
The goal is to reduce pressure injuries, helping providers avoid financial penalties and reputation damage, the company said. Customers of how2trak® Wound Care have seen significant improvements in wound healing times, wound prevalence rates, cost to treat wounds and best practices in wound care increase, the company said.
“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.”
