Social Determinants of Health: The Social Impacts on Wound Healing

Chronic wound patients face a number of challenges to their health and well-being. The presence of the ulcers is an indication of broader physical systems failures. However, with education and prevention, many wounds could be prevented or treated when they are less severe resulting in improved outcomes. The association between chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and social conditions is well established. Yet, none of the previous studies have addressed chronic ulcers. Healogics Wound Science Initiative is partnering with hospitals and researchers to better understand how the social determinants of health impact the lives of wounded patients.

Measuring and reporting outcomes in wound care: The standardization conundrum – creating a new framework to define quality wound healing

The Healogics Wound Science Initiative is a collaborative effort that aims to accelerate data-driven improvements, advance insights and perspectives, and identify mechanisms to continuously improve patient outcomes and reduce costs in the treatment of chronic wounds. The Wound Science Initiative is committed to using the Healogics data to guide the creation of wound outcomes measures that allow for industry-wide standardization and aggregate quality benchmarking.
