Clinical Workflow Analysis for Wound Management

Workflow serves as the common denominator connecting all elements of a wound management clinic. The current need for workflow optimization in wound care is driven by increasing numbers of patients with surgical or chronic wounds, as well as staff shortages at all levels of health care, including wound care. This Practice Accelerator white paper defines workflow in the context of wound management and describes the rationale for implementing a formal workflow plan in the wound care clinic.

The workflow process connects all components of wound management. Increasing workflow efficiency is an urgent priority in wound care given the rising numbers of chronic and surgical wounds and the current and projected shortages of nurses and physicians. Several types of technology have been shown to improve workflow in wound care. Incorporating this technology into daily wound care routines takes some adjustment, but the time savings and increased efficiency seen after the first few months are well worth the effort.
