Updates to the WoundExpert Wound Product Supplier module now make it even easier to order patient wound care supplies directly through WoundExpert. These updates enhance the ability to send orders, pre-populated with WoundExpert data, making it significantly faster than traditional paper methods, saving clinics valuable time each day. Facilities not using Physician Orders can now access the order form directly from the Patient Visit Page. Other enhancements include:
The Wound Product Supplier ordering module is free and easy to activate. Simply log into the WoundExpert software, click on the Wound Product Supplier Module link found under the Help Menu tab, then follow the opt-in instructions.
Based on feedback from our clients, WoundExpert has enhanced the Physician Dictation option within the software to improve the efficiency and functionality of the module. The Physician Dictation module captures and displays physician dictation as formatted, editable text, where modifications can be made via Voice Commands or manually, using the computer keyboard.
These updates are making it even easier for clinics to realize the cost and time-savings benefits of using Physician Dictation. Clinics can save up to 80% when compared to typical transcription costs while eliminating billing delays by facilitating real-time turnaround of dictation. To learn more about the new and improved Physician Dictation module, email Reid Wellock or call 1-800-411-6281, ext. 23.

WoundExpert kicked off 2011 with the WoundExpert Coffee Break, an opportunity to reach out to our clients to learn more about their experience with WoundExpert through a brief online survey. Survey participants were entered into a random drawing for a donation of $1,000 to the winner’s facility. We are pleased to announce that the Coffee Break donation has been awarded to Martha Wyche and Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington, NC.
Martha’s clinic will be using the money to assist disadvantaged patients with the purchase of compression garments, equipment, medications, and other needs to support their wound healing. Martha and her colleagues already designate a portion of their paychecks to support this vital program and we admire their commitment and dedication to their patients.
Congratulations to Martha and the Wound Healing Center of Alamance Regional Medical Center! And thanks to the 500 WoundExpert users who participated in the survey. Your responses are helping us to continue to improve the WoundExpert software.
Wound Expert has donated $3,000 to support patient and caregiver initiatives through the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care’s (AAWC) Patient Advocacy Group. The donation was made in conjunction with the recent Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring 2011 meeting in Dallas.
In lieu of handing out giveaways at the SAWC vendor exhibition, Net Health encouraged SAWC attendees to show their support by endorsing and returning a symbolic “check” – for every check collected, Net Health pledged to donate $10 to AAWC.
“Net Health values the importance of service and giving back. Through this initiative, we were able to tie this value to the important work of our clients and their patients,” explained Patrick Colletti, president of Net Health Systems.
“We are thrilled that Net Health Systems has chosen to assist patients with ‘wounds in need’ through our Patient Advocacy Campaign,” said Terry Treadwell, MD, FACS, president of AAWC. “This generous donation will help to ensure optimal wound care for patients through education and advocacy initiatives.”
