Get a Handle on Your Workflows and Processes

The key to any successful business is understanding your core process — or roadmap to success. We’ve all heard the term “work smarter, not harder,” and that is more relevant now than ever before. In a time when we’re connected seemingly 24/7, we can end up working ourselves in circles if we don’t get a good handle on workflows and processes. Instead of putting in extra hours, you can become more effective by focusing on what really matters. And once we establish those routines and processes, they become second nature.

This all begins with the power of why. Similar to how we operate in any other aspect of our lives, we must first understand where we want to go before beginning the journey. In our updated ebook – Guide to Optimize Your Wound Care Facility – industry experts share their secret sauce for understanding your why, developing a roadmap, and streamlining the process. Once the core process and why are determined, following these six best practices results in a smart, not difficult workflow and will drive substantial and sustained results in clinical, operational, and financial metrics across your business unit.

It’s estimated that a single diabetic ulcer carries a cost of nearly $50,000, and chronic wounds as a whole cost the medical system over $25 billion per year, according to Chronic Wound Healing: A Review of Current Management and Treatments, 2017. Therefore, investing the time and expertise in developing appropriate workflow will lead to greater efficiency, reduced errors, and eventually, cost savings across the board. Similar to developing workflows, our Six Best Practices eBook dives into practical tips- such as ensuring you work with your revenue cycle management team to take stock of accounts annually, if not more often- to help you formulate a plan that will yield maximum results.

In our ebook, you’ll answer your why with guidance from recognized industry experts who have developed a blueprint for success. Part of what you’ll learn includes:

  • Why we do what we do in any given workday – People and Workflows
  • Operational processes – The Formulary
  • Documentation requirements – Procedure and Compliance
  • Understanding the reimbursement process – The Importance of Compliance and Medical Necessity
  • The importance of analytics and new tech, like digital imaging
  • The thread that pulls it all together – Process
  • The power of why: Planning, Measuring, Managing and Ultimately Streamlining

Learn about a priceless process for your wound care program today.

Engaging in the process is priceless, and once put into place, becomes second nature. The outcome of smart workflows and processes is that you’re able to better manage and then optimize critical clinical, operational, regulatory, and economic functions (e.g., CORE).

Implement the best practices that will impact your business today.
