American HealthTech adds wound management

American HealthTech has added wound management to its quality assurance software. Staff can use this paperless tool - which includes a visual body map and Braden assessment wizard — to deliver care right at the bedside. Among the new options: weight and nutritional intake flow; quick infection and incident report updates; nurses notes; care plans; and MDS — within the workflow. "Unlike simple assessment tools, full Wound Management relies on integrated clinical information flows, centralized progress notes, care planning, and enterprise views to drive continuous improvement and outcomes reporting," said Teresa Chase, the firm's president and CEO.
