Measuring and reporting outcomes in chronic wound care
Chronic, non-healing wounds present a significant economic burden to our healthcare system; they also impact the quality of life of those affected — including 15 percent of Medicare beneficiaries (8.2 million people), according to 2014 Medicare data.
To help our largely underserved, high risk wound patients, wound care professionals must work together to create a standard method for measuring and reporting chronic wound healing outcomes.
To address this need, Healogics’ Wound Science Initiative recently partnered with faculty from leading medical institutions to conduct a large-scale analysis of wound outcomes using a modified intent-to-treat framework. The resulting study, which provides external validation of the comprehensive healing rate, was just published in Wound Repair and Regeneration Journal (Ennis et al. 2017).
