Grow outpatient revenue

Hospitals are facing significant reimbursement cuts in 2017!  Executives are looking to grow their outpatient revenue while reducing expenses.  Adding an outpatient wound care program can benefit a hospital in different ways.  With Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions’ consulting services, we can help your hospital set-up an outpatient facility for a fraction of the cost of the price of the typical “turn key management” solution offered by other companies.

rs_hospitalWound and hyperbaric services offer much needed access to specialty care and prevent costly emergency visits.  Even in smaller communities there are hundreds of patients suffering from a wound that won’t heal. If  patients don’t have access to a wound care program with trained providers and advanced technologies, they may end up in the emergency room.  Once admitted they tend to stay more days than their DRG will cover.  An outpatient wound care service line can help move complex patients from inpatient to outpatient services where they benefit from advanced methodologies and expert care while living at home.

The  “turn key management” model recommended by traditional wound management companies is expensive and no longer sustainable in the face of outpatient reimbursement changes.  If hospitals can manage their ED, OR or ICU they can certainly manage their wound program.  That said, when growing outpatient revenue the hospital has to develop and optimize the right processes and workflows. Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions can help your hospital navigate around the pitfalls hidden within documenting care and appropriate billing, optimizing revenue cycle management, enhancing clinical outcomes, and growing your service and market share.

Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions has proven that healing people does not need to come with a high price tag.  Our clients rank high among 800 hospitals with similar programs.  They are proud to be beating the national benchmark by 10-20 healing days!  We look forward to talking with you about how our services  may fit your needs!  http://www.comprehensive-healthcare.com/our-services/wound-care-services/

WHAM! Wound Healing Awareness Month

June is Wound Healing Awareness Month, or WHAM!

The American Board of Wound Management reports there are 6.7 million people currently suffering from non-healing wounds. Most often, healing is complicated and slowed by underlying conditions such as diabetes, venous or arterial problems, unrelieved pressure, radiation tissue damage, and infection.

The good news is that the wound team at Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions, Inc. has the expertise to help heal those difficult wounds! Our team helps hospitals throughout the USA develop their own wound care service line. We train Physicians and Nurses in the most advanced techniques for comprehensive wound management to speed healing. Examples of some of the advanced treatments utilized in an outpatient setting are application of cellular and tissue-based products, total contact casts, compression wraps, negative pressure wound therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Nutrition, blood glucose management, and pressure relief shoes and inserts are also assessed and optimized. We believe in “doing right for the right patient at the right time;” it is the under pinning of our consulting services.
