eKare Response to COVID-19

eKare remains committed to staying abreast of ongoing updates and guidelines from CMS, and will continue to deliver the services needed to help your organization deliver better wound care for the patients you serve. CMS has loosened telehealth and telemedicine restrictions due to COVID-19 and the loss of in-person interactions between providers and patients, expanding the use of technology to help those who need routine care while limiting exposure & community spread of the virus.  To review the guidelines and a list of billable codes for covered services, please review the CMS FACT SHEET.

A Virtual Solution for Wound Care

eKare’s telehealth services deliver convenient and secure solutions for healthcare providers to remotely advance the delivery of remote monitoring connections with wound care patients. Our workflow enables patient participation, allowing them to easily photograph and submit wound images, complete wound assessments and chat securely with their provider. Clinicians have the ability to conveniently access patient captured data, communicate directly with their patients, and securely store & forward data to the wound care team to advance outcomes.

Our telehealth services include

Remote Patient Monitoring

Store & Forward Data sharing

Live Video Conferencing

Live Video Conferencing

eKare has partnered with a HIPAA compliant healthcare platform to integrate live teleconferencing services into the eKare workflow. Clinicians will have the ability for two-way interactions with patients, whether directly or with a home health aide at their side. Having this technology embedded within the eKare application will allow for the following:

  • Remote and Live patient interaction
  • Protected access to patient data
  • View wound history to evaluate healing trends
  • Complete regular and/or interim assessments in a timely manner
  • Evaluate treatment protocols for potential changes
  • Produce reporting document with required information for billing and QA purposes

Remote Patient Monitoring

The Patient App enables clinician patient interaction and the remote monitoring of wound healing. Patients receive notification reminders when an assessment is due, with alerts notifying clinicians when new images, messages and assessments are completed to immediately address potential infection risk. Patients use their own mobile device to easily perform the following functions:

  • Capture a wound image and measurement without the need to use a reference sticker
  • Complete a short assessment questionnaire to evaluate potential infection risk
  • Communicate with their provider via secure messaging

Wound measurement data sharing

Store & Forward Data Sharing

With store & forward data sharing, clinicians can conveniently and securely access patient-captured wound images and assessments outside of real-time interactions. Clinicians can also share patient data, when appropriate, with other specialists in order to advance patient care and outcomes.

Regulatory Compliance

The entire eKare platform is HIPAA, GDPR, as well as 21 CFR Part 11 compliant to maximize data integrity with full audit trail.

Measure Health-related Quality of Life with Ease

Powered by ground-breaking AI technology, eKare’s Patient App now offers a host of new features for patients to capture health information, track progress, share data, and stay connected with the care team without leaving the comforts of homes. Information about symptoms, side effects or pain can be captured and shared in real-time. One of the most exciting developments is the implementation of Wound Quality of Life (Wound-QoL) questionnaire. Assessment of quality of life is a central patient-oriented outcome for wound care research studies. The e-version provides an accurate and efficient way to measure and evaluate a patient’s experience. To learn how you can implement Wound-QoL for your upcoming study, contact us.
