The next generation of the unit dose pack has been released by Advanced Tissue, and we have made it ‘smarter’… it is called Smart Pac. The Smart Pac takes the original concept of unit dose packaging and merges it with an entertainment and storytelling component. The wound care products are packaged just like before, but now they are supported by a video tutorial demonstrating how to change the specific dressings in the Smart Pac. The concept is to allow the patient to have more involvement in their progress to improved health, and these short instructional videos will help them be compliant between office visits. The patient or caregiver can access these customized, patient-specific, videos by scanning a QR code found on the Smart Pac or entering in a URL address that is provided. In addition, realizing that some patients may not have access to a computer, information is also provided as a print-out that is included in the box.
Advanced Tissue recognizes that the patient will only get better when they are consistently seen by a healthcare professional and are compliant with their instructions. In addition, we also understand that in order for the patient to regain health quality, a holistic approach to wound care must be taken. The Smart Pac by Advanced Tissue is one step toward that holistic approach to improved health. Another step is the information found within our website that supports other healthy living steps, including nutrition, exercise and positive lifestyle choices.
As Advanced Tissue moves forward with the holistic approach of not only providing wound care supplies but also providing patient-level training on how to apply those supplies, we are also offering videos that address the importance of good nutrition and hygiene. In addition, within the next few months, Advanced Tissue will continue to expand the entertainment/information concept by providing helpful videos on how a patient can effectively communicate with clinicians during office visits as well as segments on positive lifestyle choices; all of which will be accessible via a DVD which will be included in their wound care supply shipment.
