A partnership marrying home health with technology could set a new course for wound care. On Wednesday, Healthy.io announced it is teaming up with Innovive Health to deploy Healthy.io’s smartphone technology to treat and track chronic wounds, such as diabetic ulcers.
Innovive’s 700 nurses will use a Healthy.io device to scan patient wounds, upload images into a portal and then assess if wounds are healing properly.
“Any nurse can use this technology, which will result in more equitable patient care,” Innovive Health’s CEO Joseph McDonough said in a statement. “Innovive Health’s commitment to excellence coupled with Healthy.io’s vision-based medical technology can improve patient care for those suffering from particularly complex chronic wounds.”
