Wound Care Telemedicine Services

For patients located in Ashland who are in need of wound care, AHC's Telehealth Program brings a specialist to their neighborhood.

The AHC wound care specialist provides:

  • Real-time evaluations of patients with poorly healing wounds
  • Remote consults to help local physicians treat wounds and reduce patient transfer rates
  • State of the art ultrastenography from Wichita

 

How Telehealth Works

Using store and forward technology, a specialized nurse at the patient's location:

  • Records wound measurements and patient history
  • Uses a digital camera to capture images of the wound
  • Collects wound cultures
  • Applies a vast array of dressings as needed by condition
  • IV antibiotic therapy with the use of PICC, midline, or peripheral access
  • Electronically transmits the patient's history and digital images

The wound care specialist:

  • Reviews the patient's information and images
  • Develops treatment recommendations to increase wound healing
  • Relays the recommendations to the local providers who makes appropriate changes in the patient’s plan of care
