The On-Time Pressure Ulcer Healing was developed to provide nursing homes that have an electronic medical records (EMRs) system with tools to effectively monitor and manage pressure ulcers.
The resource includes five electronic reports and a menu of suggested implementation strategies for using each report to support clinical decision-making and promote effective collaboration and care coordination among disciplines.2
