“WoundCentrics continues to evolve its strategies for promoting quality, profitability and improved patient outcomes related to wound care in acute and post acute care,” explained Stuart Oertli, Chief Operating Officer for WoundCentrics. “As CMS shifts its post-acute care reimbursement strategies, we have observed that compliant patients with wound care needs are being admitted at and even higher rate than before payment reform, presenting an ongoing opportunity for the LTACH to be paid for providing appropriate wound care.
Oertli continued, “Maximizing reimbursement from these patients is one of the few proven ways to offset the revenue lost due to recent payment reform and NALTH has proven a key strategy for WoundCentrics to stay informed and ahead of the changes to ensure ongoing success for our clients.
Supporting NALTH is just one of the many ways we stay involved and informed on the constantly evolving regulatory and clinical care changes affecting LTACHs.”
WoundCentrics was formed in 2012 to provide aligned wound care services in the post acute market. We now provide services in 8 states and more than 30 hospitals.
