The Wound Care Buddy App is a cloud-based service developed, hosted and supported by Entec Health. The hosted Wound Care Buddy App content management service allows each organisation to add user-generated content and tailor the Wound Care Buddy App content to their requirements. The Wound Care Buddy App is compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices.
