HISTORY OF NATIONAL WOUND CARE
WHO WE ARE
Giving Patients Hope
With Their Chronic Illness
National Wound Care's mission is to help create better quality of life for patients dealing with chronic ailments. We do this by being an advocate for the patient through providing solutions for rapid and cost effecting healing in the post-acute care settings (home health, nursing homes, assisted living, and memory care).
TRANSFER OF KNOWLEDGE
National Wound Care was established in 1993 with the purpose of finding and sharing pathways to superior wound healing. A DME company, National Wound Care has sought to be an advocate for the patient by finding ways to help heal patients faster in the most cost effective manor possible.
Through its history as a company we have been a repository for patient and clinical education for wound care. In 1997, NWC created its first continuing education credits for complex wounds. Today we provide CE credits as part of our complex wound program C.A.R.E. (TM).
We believe that transfer of knowledge to both the clinician and the patient is the #1 way to create a better clinical outcome.
Our repository of best clinical outcomes helped us developed a complex wound formulary (decision tree) for wound patients dealing with stage III and stage IV wounds. Through seeking the best products, services and solutions National Wound Care eventually got into research and development of its own products to serve the healthcare market place.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Through development of our own products and providing effective and economical solutions, NWC has helped bring many products through the FDA process to the consumer. The solutions developed have helped heal and create a higher quality of life for patients and their caregivers.
