Hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) are painful, complex wounds that often resist standard wound care. Some HAPIs are also categorized as “never events” by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and can lead to penalties and lost reimbursement. HAPI prevention is the goal.

This white paper, sponsored by Net Health, outlines the principles of HAPI prevention through the use of digital technology. Recent innovations include automated mobile wound and skin imaging and predictive analytics solutions, such as those pioneered by Tissue Analytics, a Net Health company. 

Wound care professionals will appreciate this practical strategy for HAPI prevention using the latest digital tools.

This white paper discusses the following topics:

Epidemiology and costs of HAPIs
Accurate digital documentation and assessment
Improved workflow through technology
Technology-enabled imaging
Wound tracking through the continuum of care
Documented cost savings with Tissue Analytics
