Net Health’s J.D. Tyler, MD, Chief Medical Officer for Net Health, recently authored an article in the September issue of Care Analytics News.
One of the more challenging demographics for wound care providers to treat is diabetic patients. Many of the patients are elderly, have multiple comorbidities, and face a number of obstacles when it comes to treatment and recovery. Meeting outcome goals, as well as avoiding penalties for hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI), are just two of the reasons providers are constantly seeking new and better ways to meet the needs of diabetic patients.
The good news is new advances in wound care technology are providing the support clinicians need to better diagnose, monitor and treat wounds, helping to increase outcomes, manage costs and create care efficiencies in hospitals and clinics.
