Abstract

Use of telehealth in wound care continues to expand as technology is enhanced and clinicians become more familiar with use of the new technology as a supplement to usual care. This article describes the Telehealth Wound Care Program implemented at Mount Sinai Hospital Home Health Agency and Mount Sinai Hospital Wound Care Center. Results of the wound care provided for one patient are included in the case study described in this article. The authors note the many benefits of telehealth as an adjunct to usual therapy in wound care.
