PointClickCare has released a skin and wound smartphone app that is integrated into its EHR platform.

It showcased its app at the AHCA/NCAL Convention and Expo on Monday and Tuesday. The app is secure and HIPAA compliant and is powered by Swift Medical.

Since starting to use the app, quality improvement consultant Amy Cassata said her team at River North of Bradley Health & Rehabilitation Center in Bradley IL, has been able to develop more consistency in wound assessment and documentation.

“This consistency, with the ability to track and communicate wound status, is a significant part of our risk mitigation strategy,” she said. “Our team can identify the exact current status of a wound's healing progress more quickly, conduct analytics and provide outcomes data for the EHR.”
