Telemedicine Boosts Patient Preference for Remote Wound Care and Monitoring

As digital transformation continues to impact the healthcare industry, telemedicine is continually gaining momentum, providing care above and beyond the traditional care scenario. Research and development has led key players in the healthcare industry to come together with technology providers to create products that supplement wound care. For instance, Swift Skin and Wound, an app that is now being rolled out as a pilot test in North America, provides healthcare professionals with a way to manage and track pressure ulcers.

One of the most significant changes has been the innovation of artificial skin substitutes as an effective solution for pressure ulcers in all age groups. Focus on improved quality of life for patients has led to the current trend of holistic treatment of pressure ulcers, with skin substitutes playing an important role in effective and scar-free healing. Artificial skin substitutes have also evolved in recent times, being made from natural and artificial materials, in order to be more effective.
