Wound Care Clinics in Partnership with Careline
Provide robust involved care support before and after routine wound care clinic visits by partnering with Careline.
Your patients get an efficient amount of care in the hour they spend every week or so in a wound care clinic. They’re examined for adequate blood flow, get routine topical wound care, debrided, or be treated for infection. They have a quick chat about how things are going, ask questions (when they remember to ask) and they head back home. But time goes by fast at a wound care appointment, where clinicians must keep moving on to the next patient and the next, potentially leaving gaps in what is an otherwise reasonable care plan.
What happens between now and the next appointment?
Maybe your patient will remember to ask their questions next week. But if something’s changed in their treatment plan, or a new “small” problem arises, it can be easy for compliance to backslide.
Yes, this appointment actively treated the presented situation. But it may not have been quite enough for a wound that needs healing. Careline has identified a few gaps in standard treatment and care plans that can be filled to improve outcomes, but that just don’t fit into a typical wound care visit.
Unmanaged patient factors
When your patient’s wound requires more time than predicted to heal, or fails to heal, it could be a result of unmanaged patient factors. A typical clinic visit doesn’t adequately cover your patient’s knowledge and management of their glycemic index, or provide consumable nutritional support and education. Good intentions aside, a clinic visit simply can’t address daily treatment compliance.
Any one of these factors, alone, or in combination, may contribute to a slowed healing time. These unseen factors slowing the healing process can be puzzling, remaining unknown unless you’re partnered with Careline.
Getting in between the visits with Careline
Careline takes the guesswork out of these factors potentially sabotaging your intended treatment plan.
Between visits, we’re there. Educating your patient. Helping monitor your patient. Observing any changes in the wounds characteristics and digital size. Even just being there, as someone they can reach out to with a question or concern that “just pops up.”
You provide the treatment plan, hands-on treatment, and periodic checkups. We do the rest.
By using phone, email, text, digital notifications, and video chats, we uncover the hidden issues. We eliminate the missing factors, helping you provide a robust care and treatment plan. We enable your team to achieve quicker closures and healing.
All of Careline’s telehealth patient communications services are reimbursable by CMS directly to you. All interactions are recorded in the patient’s EMR. With access to this information and/or notification by Careline, you’ll know sooner than their next appointment what’s going on. You can be alerted early on of impending issues, patient non-compliance, or other negative issues.
Preventative care post discharge
Our support for your patients continues, even after their wounds are healed. We help you prevent new wounds by maintaining patient contact after discharge from the wound care clinic.
Our contact includes education to help prevent future issues. We alert you to any negative issues that might arise before they become a recurrence. This connection, monitoring, and video observation added to your patient’s EMR, continues to extend your care and wellness plans to each patient, while maintaining a revenue stream to provide this support.
A partnership with Careline allows you to improve patient outcomes and quality of life, all while receiving a supported revenue stream.
It’s simple: provide and expand your care’s reach using monitoring, observation, and education services by Careline. Call 1 (800) 928-6036.
