Schaumburg, IL, February 25, 2015 – The Aperion Care family of facilities, with 28 rehabilitation and skilled nursing homes, has partnered with WoundRounds® to provide state-of the-art healthcare to patients suffering from wounds.
WoundRounds offers mobile technology used bedside to provide improved wound care by enabling more efficient and effective interdisciplinary team management and treatment of complex wounds. Over the long-term, the resulting enhanced wound management protocol eventually helps prevent wounds from occurring in some instances as it measures risk and prompts best practices intervention.
According to Michelle Koder, Director of Clinical Services, “At Aperion Care, we are dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for our patients. It’s about giving each patient the best quality of life he or she can have. When it comes to wound care, we evaluated many systems and found WoundRounds, the leading wound management system, provided the best tools for our clinical team to accomplish the level of care we strive to give. We are always looking for ways to do what we do even better.”
WoundRounds point-of-care technology and electronic documentation enables outcomes reporting and sharing of patient information across the entire care team, informing nurses, doctors, and hospitals.
Koder adds, “Further, we believe a strong system of communication with our referring hospitals is essential to our patients’ successful healing. WoundRounds enables easier sharing of patient outcome data and drives consistent documentation and wound care management which makes the entire care team–from Aperion’s staff to referring physicians–better.”
WoundRounds CEO Mike Diamond says, “We’re excited to partner with Aperion Care for wound management and risk prevention. We have shared goals to harness the power of technology to improve the care provided by the team of dedicated healthcare professionals and quality of life for their wound patients.”
