08 August 2018

Description:

Traditional wound care is costly to the system (over $1 billion in Ontario) and time consuming for patients. This study of a TeleWound project conducted in the Central Eastern LHIN found an 89% patient satisfaction rate with 3 hours of patient travel time saved per month. The program reduced the need for patients to go to emergency departments or walk-in clinics, and the study estimated that telewound care could save $5800/patient/year.
