  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether using the OWEMR as part of the standard of care for Diabetic Foot Ulcers reduces the rate of lower limb amputations and to quantify the relationship between glycemic control and the rate of amputation secondary to chronic foot ulcers in Type II Diabetes.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lower extremity amputation secondary to diabetic foot ulcer [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Enrollment: 1609
Study Start Date: July 2011
Study Completion Date: September 2014
Primary Completion Date: September 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: OWEMR
Medical centers will be randomized to use the Online Wound Electronic Medical Record to enhance care of patients with diabetic foot ulcers
Other: Online Wound Electronic Medical Record
Online Wound Electronic Medical Record is a medical informatics tool that synthesizes data about complex wound problems from multiple sources and is innovative in its capability to performing these critical tasks: i) identification of the information needed to make treatment decisions at the point of care in real time ii) use intelligent search and report features to identify patients who require emergency interventions, and iii) provide evidence-based clinical decision support to clinicians
No Intervention: Standard of Care
Medical/wound centers will be randomized to continue routine care of patients with diabetic foot ulcers

Detailed Description:
The Online Wound Electronic Medical Record (OWEMR) is a medical informatics tool that synthesizes data about complex wound problems from multiple sources and is innovative in its capability to performing these critical tasks: i) identification of the information needed to make treatment decisions at the point of care in real time ii) use intelligent search and report features to identify patients who require emergency interventions, and iii) provide evidence-based clinical decision support to clinicians. Use of the OWEMR includes digital photography as an objective measurement of wound healing rates.
