Balancing Clinical Excellence with Economic Responsibility

The success of your outpatient wound care center must go further than simply providing treatment. Your success, and that of Wound Care Systems, depends on achieving a balance in clinical superiority and economic responsibility. Your patients and care partners rely on that balance and look to you to provide it.

With Wound Care Systems, we take you and your care partners beyond treating a chronic wound. We help you create a comprehensive wound healing model that includes community outreach and education around prevention, care and proper disease management. When paired with a strong clinical care team focused and trained on advanced wound care modalities and revenue cycle management, your patients and your care partners will experience a successful outpatient wound care center.

Dr. Jean Martin Charcot (same physician known for his work with patients with Charcot foot) first described this phenomenon as Decubitus Ominosus.1... Read more »
  • Use of In-chamber TCOM to Determine Optimal Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Pressure – Abstract of Presentation from ACCWS 7th Annual Symposium
    Introduction/Background: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used to promote healing in problem wounds. Transcutaneous oxygen measurement (TCOM) can be used to predict response of these wounds to HBOT. Fife et al. demonstrated that in-chamber transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2) 200–299 mmHg and higher had significantly improved response rates of nearly 80%. In-chamber TCOM... Read more »
  • The Role of an Esterified Hyaluronic Acid Matrix in Wound Healing, a Case Series
    Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an anionic, non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan, present throughout various tissues in the body, including connective and epithelial tissues. As part of the extracellular matrix (ECM), HA plays an essential role in the migration and proliferation of cells as well as in tissue hydrodynamics.1 It interacts with a number... Read more »
