Healogics Physician Leadership - Advancing Wound Science and Healing

 
THE WOUND CARE CHALLENGE

It is both complex and costly to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of non-healing wounds. In fact, it represents a $52 billion dollar problem for the U.S. healthcare system1.  

A typical hospital discharges nearly six percent of its patients with an active wound2; 20 percent of those will be readmitted within a year3. As a result, hospitals face potentially higher costs, longer lengths of stay, diminished patient satisfaction and revenue loss from patient leakage.

Across the U.S., Healogics’ commitment, collaboration and patient-centric approach is designed to ensure that each patient is discharged to the right place for his or her continued care.
