Health Alert: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Who we are
Healogics is the nation’s leading provider of advanced wound care. Wound care treatment is very important and more common than most people realize. In fact, 1 in 4 families has a family member with a chronic wound. The impact on people and their loved ones is astounding, as a wound left untreated can lead to diminished quality of life and possible amputation of the affected limb. Approximately 30 percent of untreated chronic wounds result in amputation, and five-years post-amputation the mortality rate is approximately 75 percent.
Fortunately, there is hope for people who suffer from chronic wounds. Every team member within the Healogics network of nearly 600 Wound Care Centers® dedicates themselves every day to healing and caring for people with hard-to-heal wounds. The expertise of our Wound Care Centers’ specialty-trained wound care physicians allows Centers to treat a variety of chronic wounds.
We have been treating patients with chronic wounds for over 20 years, from over 600 hospital-based wound care centers across the country. Today, Healogics treats over 300,000 wound care patients a year and has healed nearly 4M wounds.
If you’re one of them, we can help.
Healogics has invested in advanced wound care treatment, technology and research. That means our patients heal faster than those who receive only generalized wound care.
Wound Science Initiative
The Healogics Wound Science Initiative is our commitment to use research to advance the science of wound care and continually improve treatment. Through our database of more than five million wounds and our partnerships with academic and scientific leaders, Healogics has become the foremost expert in evidence-based wound care, resulting in better wound care outcomes for our patients and partners.
Make 2021 The Year of Healing for Improved Immunity and Wellness
If your New Year’s resolution is a healthier lifestyle, you’re not alone. Diet, exercise and wellness goals are among the top five New Year’s resolutions year after year. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit close to home for many of us, as we have mourned the loss of people we love, worried over each illness, celebrated recoveries and cheered on our heroic healthcare providers. This crisis has reinforced the importance and value of good health, especially for people living with chronic wounds and compromised immune systems.
Patient Outcomes Improve When Patient Engagement Increases
Written by Healogics Chief Medical Officer, Dr. William Ennis.
As part of our ongoing research to improve healing rates, Healogics research reveals the significant impact of patient engagement across all stages of healing. The four factors that have been identified as having the greatest impact on whether a patient heals according to expected timelines are: Frequent/Regular Patient Visits, Preventing Stalled Wounds, Increasing Patient Engagement and Utilizing Advanced Modalities.
Simple Steps to Help Wounds Heal Faster
Wondering how to heal wounds faster? There are a number of steps you can take. Research proves that wounds heal faster when patients stay involved in their care and follow their doctor’s advice. The most important way to help your wound heal is by keeping every scheduled appointment. However, you also need to follow good wound care practices at home.
