Care Coordinated Telemedicine Consultations
For problem wounds Dr. Tay Sha Howell can offer professional recommendations regarding general wound management, second opinions, or assessment of need for more specialized care.
A primary care provider may not believe the patient’s wound warrants a referral to a hospital outpatient wound center. They may want an initial recommendation on specific dressing or treatment options for a fairly new wound. They may want assistance with wound care follow up after an ER visit. They may want advice on a stalled wound.
Physicians may arrange for a wound care telemedicine consultation during their appointment with the patient to get an expert opinion about treatment options, need for advanced wound treatments, additional testing, or specialist referrals.
