Mobile tech for wound monitoring

More proof of the versatility of mobile health/remote monitoring.  Wound management in home care is not the first place you’d think of as an application for mobile telehealth or telemedicine.  Yet the Wound Technology Network in South Florida and Southern California is equipping its visiting clinicians with AT&T HTC FUZE smartphones.  iVisit software enables them to teleconference and send photos from the patient’s location to wound care specialists at their telehealth center, and discuss assessments in real time.  Information is then uploaded into the patient’s EMR.  Where it goes out of ‘e’ is that the records are sent from the EMR to the patient’s physician via fax!  AT&T news release.
