Singapore, Singapore, February 22, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- IAHG [International Advanced Healing Group, Ltd.], the Singapore-based healing management technology group, along with its wholly-owned US-based subsidiary AHI (Advanced Health Institute, Inc.) says it is still engaged in talks with the Chairman of the Minnesota American Indian Chamber of Commerce in its bid to help bolster the state’s battle with increasing instances of type 2 diabetes among the American Indian community.
Many Native American communities in the state have hospitals and primary care clinics provided by the US Department for the Interior, the agency responsible for the protection of the country’s heritage and tribal communities.
The prevalence of diabetes among Minnesota’s American Indian communities have resulted in increasing costs at the various healthcare providers tasked with delivering care to patients.
“Diabetes can cause skin sores which can develop to the point where limbs may need to be amputated so this is a very serious issue that a superior wound management software platform like HOOP can help to mitigate,” said a spokesperson for International Advanced Healing Group. “We are in no doubt whatsoever that implementation of our HOOP software solution could help significantly reduce the cost of caring for patients and free resources that could be used to treat more individuals,” he continued.
International Advanced Healing Group says it is planning to run real-time tests at one Minneapolis clinic with an 85% American Indian patient base as part of its effort to prove the software’s efficacy in a real-world setting. “We remain confident that once the clinic’s results are completed, HOOP’s ability to reduce costs while maintaining the standard of care delivered to patients will prove difficult to ignore,” concluded the IAHG spokesperson.
HOOP is an internet-based, cloud-enabled wound management system which, as well as being compatible with all desktop and mobile devices equipped with a browser, also complies with strict rules governing the protection of privacy of patient information in the US, Europe and several Asian jurisdictions. It delivers wound management reports, patient care plans and solutions while recording time savings on procedures and administration thereby freeing time for healthcare professionals to spend more time interacting with patients.
