Monitoring the Healing Process

Since chronic wounds typically take months to heal, even with highly effective treatment, Dr. Brem and his team closely monitor each patient's healing process—an approach that Dr. Brem has helped to pioneer. This includes maintaining a photographic record of the wound, which is combined with other key information about the patient’s health status into a single-screen online document. This information is reviewed by Dr. Brem on a regular basis, and is also made available to other members of the patient's medical team. Each patient's online wound electronic medical record also generates automatic alerts if a patient’s condition shows signs of worsening—ensuring that needed interventions are carried out in a timely and effective fashion.
