|Diabetes Mellitus Foot Ulcers||Procedure: telemedicine consultations||Phase 2|
Through randomized and prospective studies the project will show whether a telemedicine approach to wound care can be used as an alternative to traditional attendance at a wound clinic and document whether this consultation form provides a greater patient-satisfaction and cost savings. The project will document that telemedicine is equivalent to conventional outpatient attendance from a therapeutic aspect in terms of number of hospitalizations, number of extra controls, acute interventions and wound healing.
The project is also investigating the extent of time spent on the personnel side using telemedicine consultations compared with conventional outpatient appearances.
