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.

Wound healing outcomes: Using big data and a modified intent-to-treat method as a metric for reporting healing rates

This study presents a modified intent-to-treat framework for measuring wound outcomes and measures the consistency of population based outcomes across two distinct settings. In this retrospective observational analysis, we describe the largest to date, cohort of patient wound outcomes derived from 626 hospital based clinics and one academic tertiary care clinic. We present the results of a modified intent-to-treat analysis of wound outcomes as well as demographic and descriptive data.
