Health Outcomes Worldwide Partners with Think Research Group Opening its Wound Care Management Platform to Network of 300 Health Care Organizations

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 10, 2015) - Health Outcomes Worldwide (HOW), one of Canada's leading e-health software solutions providers for optimizing patient care and cost outcomes, announced today a finalized agreement with Think Research, Canada's foremost provider of clinical decision support tools.

The partnership will see HOW's award-winning how2trak® software integrated as a third party application into Think Research Group's cloud-based platform EntryPoint, immediately making it accessible to the Group's network of 300 North American health care organizations.

How2trak® is available as a mobile app on all iOS and Android mobile devices. In real time, the how2trak® mobile app analyzes complex data sets to empower nurses and physicians with more knowledge to help them improve patient care and dramatically reduce costs.

Unlike an Electronic Health Record (EHR), how2trak® requires, reminds, and guides healthcare professionals to follow evidence-based, best practice care. At the point of care specifically, the how2trak® mobile app helps nurses and physicians understand if a patient's condition is improving or worsening.

Health Outcomes CEO Corrine McIsaac said of the announcement, "We're incredibly excited to be working with the Think Research team to instantly expose our platform to such a large North American network of organizations. Having developed an industry leading wound care platform, backed by the most extensive wound care database in Canada, HOW is now seeing rapid market adoption validating the work undertaken. With HOW clients achieving $4-5 in savings for each $1 of spend, we believe this level of growth can, and will, continue for the long term."

Sachin Aggarwal, Chief Operating Officer of Think Research remarked, "how2trak® fundamentally changes the way that health care providers track patient progress for wounds, pressure ulcers and surgical site infections. We're very pleased to be working with Health Outcomes to bring this transformative product to a broader market. The marketplace of applications available through EntryPoint is gaining a very powerful new addition."
