Wound Manager Intro Guide


The Wound Manager in Axxess Home Health is a robust management system that tracks wounds and wound orders, and provides administrative access to wound history, notifications, photos, characteristics and flowsheet documentation.


Review the following training information before enabling the Wound Manager.


Once the Wound Manager is enabled, agencies enter a three-week trial period during which the Wound Manager can be disabled. After the trial period has ended, the Wound Manager cannot be disabled.
