Technology-enabled diabetes foot service
Entec Health is proud to be an industry contributor to a successful new model of care developed for managing patients with diabetes foot ulcers. The service innovation is helping patients in Derbyshire to receive their care closer to home.
A live demonstrator has been established, with the support of East Midlands AHSN, in partnership with Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, Southern Derbyshire and Erewash CCGs.
The Silhouette digital ulcer assessment solution enables HCPs to objectively assess DFU healing progress and response to treatment. Using the accurate DFU progress data, HCPs can confidently optimise treatment and timely referral to specialist MDT care.
The Silhouette system data is available in real time at the point of care and also via remote access to a web-enabled information database to support telehealth consultation across the DF pathway.The Silhouette solution enables transformation of the diabetes foot service in following ways:
- Evidence-based, outcomes-focused care
- Timely care, closer to home in community
- Reduction in outpatient appointments
- Avoidance of hospital admissions
- Improved service access for patients
- Reduction in cost of service delivery
