Patients with chronic wounds are medically and socially complex, and they require specialized care and management for optimal treatment outcomes. With an aging population and the continued rise of diabetes and obesity, identifying cost-effective, high-quality wound care will be an increasing public health and policy issue. Consistency and standardization in wound outcomes reporting are essential as the health care industry moves toward value-based models.

This well-referenced guide, by advanced wound care services provider Healogics, discusses the measurement and reporting of outcomes in patients with chronic wounds and proposes a framework for aggregate wound measurement standardization. The comprehensive healing rate is a modified intent-to-treat metric that allows for comparison across multiple settings.

Wound care professionals will appreciate this useful new metric for wound healing outcomes.

This white paper covers the following topics:

Challenges of chronic wounds
Medicare spending on chronic ulcers and other wounds
Need for a standardized method of measuring and reporting healing outcomes
Healogics’ comprehensive healing rate metric
Rationale for intent-to-treat methodology
Comprehensive healing rate study findings
Risk stratification as the next step
