WHAT WE DO
Complex Wound Program for Home Health
PDGM created risk and opportunity for Home Health Agencies. Using over 27 years experience and protocols from clinical trials and our focus on continuing education NWC has develop a complex wound formulary that helps more chronic wounds become acute, reduce hospitalizations, disrupts biofilm, and reduced time on NPWT. Yes, it is possible to have consistently profitable wound care referrals.
Turn More Chronic Wounds Acute
What is Biofilm?
Identifying biofilm is one of the most important aspects of wound care. Over 90% of chronic wounds contain pathogens living in a biofilm construct. So what is Biofilm?
Biofilm is created when a group of pathogens establish a colony and create a protective matrix film. Biofilms often establish antibiotic resistant properties, and can reform as early as 30 minutes after debridement.
National Wound Care provides molecular/PCR testing to accurately identify pathogens within the wound and then uses protocol developed by Seaton Medical Center to disrupt the biofilm and remove the pathogens from the wound bed without the use of antibiotics.
Superior Process for NPWT
National Wound Care's proprietary use of DACC within negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has provided superior wound healing outcomes, and has been unofficially labeled by patients as the "limb saver."
The process is able to simultaneously treat and/or remove infections while using the advanced wound healing technology of NPWT.
23 days faster healing time from 2 year back to back study
Average days to heal: 41.91 days vs. 65.63 days on largest brand.
DACC lifts and removes harmful bacteria from the wound bed.
On-demand instructional videos for clinicians and patients.
Remote Wound Care
NWC has partnered with providers and WOC nurses to provide wound and ostomy oversight via for Home Health Agencies and Skilled Nursing Facilities via telemedicine.
