IT in Nursing Homes and wound care

I came across this describing an AHRQ grant to study the benefit of IT in wound management:

"AHRQ is funding a study (K08HS016862-01) to assess the relationship between IT sophistication and nursing home quality. The Sinclair School of Nursing, University of Missouri at Columbia with lead investigator Professor Greg Alexander, has two specific goals. One goal is to compare pressure ulcer quality measures in nursing homes with high IT sophistication versus nursing homes with low IT sophistication. The second goal is to explore strategies to communicate pressure ulcer preventions used in highly sophisticated nursing homes versus nursing homes with low IT sophistication."

For more information, contact Greg Alexander at (573) 882-0277 or email"
