JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug 30, 2018–Healogics®, the wound healing experts, today announced the launch of their newest program: Healogics Specialty Physicians Care Continuum (HSP Care Continuum). The Program is designed to support the patient experience by improving continuity of care, cost-effectiveness, patient outcomes, value and satisfaction for people with chronic wounds who are transitioning from an inpatient to an outpatient setting.
Healogics Announces New Program Aimed at Improving Continuity of Care
The HSP Care Continuum Program provides skilled wound care physicians in the hospital inpatient setting who have specialized training in the management of complex wounds. These physicians will work collaboratively with Certified Wound and Ostomy Nurses and referring specialists needing a specialty consult. Also, Healogics clinical teams educate discharge planners on post-acute options so patients with wounds receive care for this critical co-morbid condition while they are also receiving post-acute care for their primary diagnosis. Healogics has a vast library of educational content that will be made available for patients who can care for their wounds between follow up post-acute visits.
“The average hospital stay is 2.4 days longer for patients living with a chronic wound. With better inpatient consults, we believe we can have an impact on care continuity and, in turn, reducing the overall cost of care. We are excited for the launch of this new program, and the positive implications it will have on the overall patient experience,” said David Bassin, Healogics Chief Executive Officer.
