Wound care app could help to reduce nurses’ workload

A trial of the wound-measuring app showed it can help improve patients’ wound-healing time

Nurses’ workloads can be reduced by using a wound care app, claims an NHS group. According to Northern Care Alliance (NCA), which combines Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, a trial in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, found that the app developed by Healthy.io helps to speed up patients’ wound care and treatment, meaning the volume of work for nurses can be reduced by up to one week per patient.
