New PAC program focuses on design
Invacare Corporation has introduced Invacare Outcomes by Design, a consultative program designed to focus on measurable outcomes.
"We elicited input and feedback from clinicians and administrators to ensure the composition of each module was effective and built to support today's challenges facilities need to overcome," said Ed Armstrong, VP Post Acute Care Product & Channel Marketing.
Areas of the program center on safe patient handling, pressure management and facility design. The Safe Patient Handling Module has been implemented in more than 1,000 long-term care facilities and can help reduce employee injury, the company said. The Pressure Management Module focuses on reducing pressure injuries, looking at wound care goals and improving quality measures. The Facility Design Module is focused on attracting new residents, improving employee morale and boosting satisfaction among current residents, the company said.
