The Benefits of System-Based Woundcare

Wound care is increasingly evidence based and systematic, requiring specialized leadership, and system-based quality assurance to make certain that published guidelines and cost-effective, evidence-based wound care regimens are utilized on a day-to-day basis.

Wound care represents an unparalleled opportunity, which is best achieved through a system-driven quality-focused model. WoundCentrics is designed to deliver precisely this combination of resources and management, to your healthcare facility.

Our solutions deliver a wound care Center of Excellence, allowing you to check wound care off of your administrative to-do list. We provide turnkey accountability through fellowship trained physicians and physician extenders, continuous monitoring, and a level of care that will allow you to legitimately tout your facility as a true "Center of Excellence for Wound Care."


The Cure for Compliance Headaches

Compliance is a pressing concern, and a time consuming burden for management. In particular, iatrogenic wounds have become a major source of concern. A WoundCentrics wound care program is the best way to meet these challenges.

  • Evaluate potential admissions by accurately assessing wounds, and co-morbidities in admission candidates

  • Accurately identify Present On Admission wounds, and identify patient at high-risk for iatrogenic wounds, through expert assessment of all new admissions

  • Effectively prevent iatrogenic wounds through staff education, continuous quality monitoring, and process improvement.


Improved Reimbursement Through Effective Documentation

Our clinicians understand the need for accurate and complete documentation, and its impact on compliance and reimbursement. 

Our clinicians understand the key impact of co-morbid conditions, and the importance of their early identification and accurate documentation in the medical record.

These conditions raise the cost of care delivery, but they are often missed, or poorly documented, adversely affecting reimbursement.

Has your facility lost money because clinicians fail to document CMI impacting co-morbid conditions?

Our clinicians are responsible for helping you solve this problem.


Real World FINANCIAL IMPACT FOR LTACH Programs

The WoundCentrics program supports consistent and substantial CMI increases, across a range of patient types. CMI impact is typically on the order of 0.5 or more for WoundCentrics managed patients, with gains seen across a broad range of patient types.

For example, in a WoundCentrics serviced, 35 bed LTAC, reimbursement increases directly related to our program amounted to an $873,000 reimbursement increase in one quarter, after expenses. These are real-world gains, across a broad mix of primary admitting diagnoses.

The WoundCentrics program is optimized to help your LTAC manage patient effectively under payment reform, allowing site neutral patients to be admitted, cost-effectively managed, and discharged within 7 days, when appropriate. Few programs are capable of this level of efficiency and responsiveness, but WoundCentrics programs are doing this, now, allowing their host facilities to manage patients with wound needs, for IPPS DRGs.

Could your LTAC benefit from this kind of wound care management and reimbursement increase? If you would like more information about implementing our program in your LTAC, and creating a "Center of Excellence for Wound Care," drawing increased referrals, and increasing CMI significantly across a range of admitting diagnoses, please contact us. We would be happy to evaluate your current program, and show you what Woundcentrics, LLC can do for your LTAC.
