Healogics is your partner for integrated wound care in skilled nursing facilities.
From initial wound diagnosis through resolution, Healogics provides the highest level of integrated wound management throughout the continuum of care in the skilled nursing facilities we serve. Specialists in all locations are trained extensively on evidence-based clinical guidelines, with wound care nurses and specialty physicians medically following the patient during transitions of care.
Advanced wound care benefits your patients and your facility.
The continuity of care we provide benefits long-term care facilities in two important ways. First, patients receive the best wound care available over time and across locations, which advances patient health. Second, it facilitates coordination between the facility and the hospital during transitions of care for chronic wound patients. Hospitals feel more comfortable when discharging patients with chronic wounds to facilities that maintain the highest quality of wound care.
The Healogics approach to integrated wound care puts your patients at the center of the care continuum.
Integrated care begins in the setting of initial diagnosis.
At initial diagnosis, whether inpatient or outpatient, highly trained Healogics wound care specialists begin a treatment process that promotes consistency across care settings.
Physicians are accountable for care across settings.
A unique care plan for each patient guides wound care across all care settings, with the local care team working to ensure seamless uniformity during and after transitions.
Integrated care increases patient satisfaction.
For patients in the skilled nursing facility, Healogics care can help to minimize hospital readmissions. In the hospital, expert care may reduce length of stay and speed up return to the facility.
Evidence-based best practices govern wound care consistency.
Every Healogics specialty physician in the community is trained in the same clinical practice guidelines, ensuring care quality and efficiency throughout the care continuum.
We have treatment privileges at 300+ skilled nursing facilities, and treat patients at more than 650 outpatient locations.
Each year, we treat more than 330,000 patient admissions through the Healogics network, resulting in more than three million patient encounters.
Healogics partners with more than 10,000 affiliates, including nearly 300 highly trained physicians and advanced practitioners, plus a network of approximately 4,000 panel physicians.
Using a modified intent-to-treat framework, this healing rate takes into account all outcomes, making it the most standardized and transparent comparison figure, and the best metric to compare across venues.
We partner with 300+ skilled nursing facilities across the U.S.
Patient-Centered Wound Care – Findings from a Survey: Physician Perspectives on Wound Care
Healogics researchers partnered with Dr. Alexandra Nowakowski, a leading patient advocate and medical researcher at Florida State University’s College of Medicine, to investigate physician perceptions of wound care. Healogics physicians were recruited to participate in an anonymous nine-question survey focused on their experiences and perceptions of wound care and wounded patients. The questions focused on patient attributes that influence positive or negative wound outcomes, patient impacts on physicians’ care plan and physicians’ perspective of patient-centered wound care.Go to Download
