Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR CLASSIFICATION AND TREATMENT OF DECUBITUS ULCERS
Abstract:
Systems and methods for accurately and efficiently diagnosing, assessing, staging, and treating pressure ulcers, as well as preventing reverse staging of pressure ulcers, are disclosed. The system, in one embodiment, ensures that the rationale for the stage assigned to the patient will be in the patients' medical record. The system, in various embodiments, further suggests the pressure ulcer classification and allows the user to choose which classification terms should be used. In various embodiments, the system also allows for the different classification/staging system guidelines to be used, including the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) guidelines, the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Guidelines (EPUAP), the Pan Pacific Pressure Injury Alliance, CMS, WHO, and the MDS Guidelines.
