On-Time Pressure Ulcer Healing Project
This report compiles pressure ulcer statistics from data captured by nursing staff on weekly ulcer assessment documentation. This report is an example to clinicians of how health information technology can be leveraged to collect, store, and compile data for reporting. Information that displays in this report is usually compiled manually by nursing staff or quality improvement (QI) teams. Clinicians will use this report for internal reporting and to monitor and analyze facility pressure ulcer development patterns and rates to formulate improvement strategies. Clinicians will run this report at the end of each month.
