A new partnership between DB Results and Lenexa Medical, aims to help patients rest easy, with the development of the Quality of Care Smart Sheet.
Pressure Injuries (PIs) are mostly preventable, however, in Australia alone, there are over 300,000 cases of PIs each year. PIs remain a devastating complication for patients in hospital and aged care settings, particularly where a person is immobile for a prolonged period.
A new partnership between DB Results and Lenexa Medical, aims to help patients rest easy, with the development of the Quality of Care Smart Sheet. The high tech ultra-thin bed sheet will assist clinicians in treating patients as well as provide a real time monitoring device for PI risk.
Lenexa Medical's CEO, Ajit Ravindran is passionate about affordable quality care for patients and reducing the costs to families and the healthcare system. "Pressure injuries are not only preventable but have become a multibillion-dollar healthcare burden."
The Lenexa Medical Quality of Care Smart Sheet aims to improve the current standard of care, which involves an often subjective and underperformed visual and tactile risk assessment. This leads to non-targeted prevention strategies and poor quality of care. Mr Ravindran said, "Our solution is the first of its kind to help facilitate personalised, precision-based pressure injury prevention. Our smart sheet will provide clinicians and carers with information to help in the quest to completely prevent pressure injuries."
DB Results joint CEO Gavin Bunshaw is delighted to announce its investment in Lenexa Medical and their role in the production of such innovative solutions. "This solution fits with other health initiatives DB Results has been involved with over the past year, by investing in innovative products that put patients at the centre. Our involvement as members of the Advisory Board will initially focus on supporting the roll out of the Smart Sheet. It's ground-breaking initiatives such as these that have the potential to make an enormous difference not just to the industry, but to individual patients and clinicians".
The relationship brings together DB Results' global industry and digital business expertise and Lenexa Medical's solution that delivers targeted wound care information to aid in the prevention of Pressure Injuries.
