Wound care is a serious problem that’s only getting worse.
Millions of people in the United States are living with chronic wounds, and the numbers continue to rise. They are more prevalent among the 30.3 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes, who have a 25 percent risk of developing a foot ulcer. Non-healing wounds are also caused by increased age, obesity, heart and vascular disease, cancer treatment and traumatic injury.
Chronic wounds cost payers.
Wound care costs are growing, with inpatient costs driven primarily by bed usage, supplies and durable medical equipment, and extended lengths of stay.
Healing chronic wounds can be a challenge in a primary care setting.
Most primary care physicians receive a very limited amount of wound care training in medical school. For providers who don’t specialize in treating chronic wounds, advanced training can be cost prohibitive.
Hospitals often find that developing their own successful practice for treating chronic wounds is too expensive, comes with significant risk and is hard to measure. Additionally, patients themselves often don’t know that their existing chronic conditions can lead to non-healing wounds and are unaware of preventive strategies or how to spot an ulcer early.
