Technology continues to play an increasingly important role in home health care. With the spread of COVID -19 and the need for on-going precautions, technology is one area that has played an important role in ensuring patients receive the care they need while care givers and the community reduce exposure to the virus. Additionally, technology is allowing for more through and accurate diagnosis, more rapid treatments, and quicker more successful recoveries by patients.

We at Comprehensive Home Health & Hospice deploy multiple technologies to provide the highest levels of care and patient satisfaction, including tele-heath, video conferencing and other tools. Today however, we wanted to take a moment to highlight one particular technology we use to help our patients, that significantly sets Comprehensive Home Health & Hospice apart from other providers in the San Antonio and Bear County areas and dramatically enhances the quality of care our patients receive.

Tissue Analytics wound care management technology allows wounds to be easily tracked by physicians from a highly secure cloud based dashboard, at any time from any location. This helps ensure rapid recovery and healing for patients.

That technology is wound care management through Tissue Analytics. This advanced wound care technology allows a photo to be taken of a venous ulcer, diabetic ulcer, burn or surgical wound with a smartphone or tablet. With that image, the Tissue Analytics system allows a significant amount of date to be analyzed and tracked to ensure proper healing. For example, the wound dimensions can be measured in an extremely accurate manner. Gone are the days of trying to measure a wound with a ruler, causing patients potential pain, leaving room for inaccuracy, providing almost no way to accurately track wound progress, and cataloging only sporadic information about the healing process.

The tissue Analytics system also allows the tissue composition of the wound to be identified and classified to accurately track the wound history and identify important data points throughout the healing process. All wound data is securely stored in the cloud so healthcare providers can access the data from anywhere, whenever they need it. With the ability to comprehensively analyze and track the progress of a wound through a web-based dashboard, physicians are able to quickly and accurately asses the status of a wound, the healing patterns, and make any needed adjustments to ensure a speedy recovery. All while adhering to HIPPA and other privacy regulations to ensure patient confidentiality.

As COVID-19 and other factors continue to be a consideration in how treatment is delivered to patients in a home health care or hospice setting, Comprehensive Home Health & Hospice will continue to make the most of a broad range of technologies to; help ensure patients needs are fully met, recovery is rapid, and information is effectively communicated to patients, their families, and their physicians.
