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.
Wound 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.
