NORTH PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - EncounterCare Solutions (PINKSHEETS: ECSL) announced today that its subsidiary, CyberCare Health Network, Inc. ("CyberCare"), has signed a three year contract with Primary Wound Care Specialists LLC to supply an integrated clinical solution for wound management. This solution integrates two systems, CyberCare's Electronic House Call Technology and ARANZ Medical's Silhouette Wound Assessment and Information System. This joint solution enables the comprehensive assessment, treatment planning and compliance monitoring for patients enrolled in Primary Wound Care's contracted Health Plans.
"The introduction of this new wound management program is a significant milestone for CyberCare," stated Chris Doherty, Executive Vice President of CyberCare. "Wound care is a large cost factor in health care today and this novel wound care treatment system will decrease costs while enhancing wound management and patient care. We expect that this relationship with Primary Wound will develop into an increasingly profitable market opportunity for CyberCare."
CyberCare's Electronic House Call allows the clinician to record the data from ARANZ Medical's Silhouette system, compile compliance data and transmit it back to a central station for review by clinical experts. The Electronic House Call allows both the clinician and the patient to review both objective and subjective data that is applicable to both patient compliance and the prescribed care plan so as to improve patient outcomes.
The ARANZ Silhouette Wound Assessment and Information System is a new product that images, measures and documents wounds and provides decision support capabilities for wound care professionals. Measurements require no physical contact with the patient, eliminating discomfort and reducing risk of infection and are incorporated directly into the patient's electronic medical record. Presentation of near-real time data on wound progress at the point-of-care allows more informed and timely decisions on treatment pathways and its comprehensive reporting and analysis capabilities allow providers and payers to track and report on therapy utilization, healing outcomes and compliance with prescribed care plans.
