Leg and foot ulcers associated with diabetes and venous stasis constitute a major health problem in the U.S. The purpose of this study is twofold: (1) to compare the rate of wound healing when care is delivered by a comprehensive team versus care delivered by generalist providers, and (2) to evaluate the efficacy of telehealth technology to capture, store, transmit, and reproduce wound images and assessment data. The study will be conducted in a federal health care network, including urban and rural clinics. A total of 140 subjects will be assigned to one of four groups: (a) team-managed clinic patients with a venous stasis ulcer, (b) team-managed clinic patients with a diabetic ulcer, (c) generalist-managed clinic patients with venous stasis and (d) generalist-managed clinic patients with diabetic ulcers. Data collection will consist of an initial comprehensive assessment and weekly assessments for four consecutive weeks using a data collection instrument developed for the study. Digital images of the wound will be taken to appraise how closely an assessment of the digitally displayed wound matches in vivo wound assessment. Data analysis will estimate the relative rate of wound healing between groups.
