ArjoHuntleigh and Ossur Formalize Distribution Agreement to Deliver DVTCare at Home Program
Date:11/12/2013

een designed to help reduce a patient's risk of developing a DVT when they are at home and most vulnerable after discharge.  Elderly patients, and those who have undergone orthopedic surgery, chemotherapy treatment, or otherwise experienced extended periods of immobility are considered among the greatest at-risk for developing DVTs. 

Major clinical bodies have also recognized that inappropriate inpatient and post-discharge care may further increase an individual's risk for developing DVTs.  The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently classified DVTs as a "never event," considering them a serious and preventable hospital-acquired adverse outcome.  Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) recommend post-discharge use of newer battery-powered Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Devices (IPCDs), such as the DVTCare system, to manage patient's DVT risk.
