Jacksonville, FL – One Call recently announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Acelity, an advanced wound care company, to deliver iOn PROGRESS Remote Therapy Monitoring to patients with difficult to heal wounds.
People with hard to heal wounds may require extensive negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in the home. It has been observed that in some cases because of the elongated healing times, these patients may be non-compliant with therapy, thus further extending the wound’s time to closure, potentially resulting in avoidable emergency room visits and hospital admissions.
iOn PROGRESS Remote Therapy Monitoring is the first system to deliver continuous at-home monitoring for patients prescribed NPWT in the home. It works in conjunction with the ACTIV.A.C. TM System to monitor adherence and securely transmit data to the iOn PROGRESS Care Network, a group of highly-trained individuals who interact with patients to drive proper utilization. Through One Call’s vast network of home health providers, the device will increase engagement between patients and their care-givers when real-time dips in adherence are observed, which can help them understand the importance of therapy compliance and provide important data to clinicians.
“Pairing Acelity’s digital health technology and unparalleled wound care solutions with our extensive home health network and equipment and device offering allows One Call to offer a truly holistic approach to wound management,” said Will Smith, chief product officer at One Call. “Remote therapy monitoring puts the patient at the center of the solution and provides clinicians with the intelligence necessary to help improve the overall patient experience and positively impact healing outcomes.”
