Healogics' Integrated Wound Care Community model was presented at ACWHTR as part of the conference's mission to educate medical professionals. The new care model enables providers to manage populations of patients across sites of service for better wound management and patient outcomes. The care model creates a network of acute, post-acute, and outpatient settings where patients' care continues to be managed. It is designed to ensure seamless continuity of care, decrease the likelihood of hospital readmissions, and decrease length of stay in the acute care setting. The model combines multidisciplinary teams, including Healogics Specialty Physicians, with specialized technology, evidenced-based care pathways, and patient-centric outreach and support. A case study of the Integrated Wound Care Community model at a Midwest hospital over two years (2014-2016) resulted in: Decreased length of stay from 9.41 days to 5.64 days. Total cost of care per patient fell from $10,670 to $7,248. "Wound care is incredibly complex and wound prevalence will continue to rise as these wounds are directly correlated with aging and chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cancer," said Dr. Arti Masturzo, ABPM/UHM executive vice president of clinical innovation at Healogics, and lead presenter of the program's findings. "A wound is a symptom of a larger problem these are very sick patients that need holistic care. Our community-based wound care model addresses the wound healing process across institutional, clinical, post-acute and home settings. Healing often requires months of care.
