Grow your wound care knowledge with resources for providers.
Ongoing education and research is critically important to advancing the field of wound care. To help our provider partners stay informed about the latest wound care best practices and developments, we provide a collection of wound care provider resources, including blog posts, articles, studies, guidelines, webinars and white papers.
Comprehensive Healing Rate: Standardization and transparency in wound outcome reporting using a modified intent-to-treat framework
The findings of the study emphasize the importance of standardization and transparency in wound outcome reporting. However, while useful, until a standardized risk-adjustment methodology is applied, both the comprehensive and standard healing rates are necessary to understand the quality of care.
"Knowing that the leadership of Healogics has extensive plans to grow in this field is rewarding to me. They are expanding our product lines to ensure we are meeting the wound care needs of our patients and our hospital partners in all areas."
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.
Etiology Specific Variation in Comprehensive Healing Rate and Time to Heal 2014-2017: Arterial, Diabetic, Pressure and Venous Ulcers
The purpose of this analysis is to examine the degree of variation in comprehensive healing rate and median time to heal for diabetic, arterial, pressure and venous ulcers using a modified intent-to-treat framework.
HBOT increases the dissolved oxygen content in blood plasma. Functionally speaking, this translates into a systemic increase in reactive oxygen (oxygen free radicals) and reactive nitrogen species. The direct result includes a number of physiological benefits to the wounded host.
"Healogics has helped me develop as a leader and has given me guidance on new techniques to handle different staff based on their individual learning needs."
"My greatest reward of working at Healogics is having the ability to help people…from my collaborative efforts with colleagues and our hospital partners during the development and implementation phase of opening a new Wound Care Center to ultimately helping our patients."
This analysis presents findings from an external third-party analysis of the impact of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) on diabetic ulcer outcomes, both healing and amputation, using a large sample of Healogics i-heal® data.
