Earlier Specialized Physician Intervention Lowers Costs, Readmissions and Length of Stay
In an innovative approach to wound care management, two Midwest hospitals partnered with Healogics to create a program that emphasized earlier intervention and a higher level of wound care integration throughout the care continuum. An initial pilot project demonstrated considerable successes in the reduction of care costs, readmissions and length of stay for hospital inpatients patients with chronic wounds – a group that typically ranks highest in these three areas.
This hospital’s approach and experience suggests steps that other hospitals can take to improve wound center outcomes by enhancing existing strengths in wound care, all with minimal impact on established workflows.
