As a physician-led group, we focus on delivering better outcomes by partnering with our facilities and building long-term sustainable relationships. Today, we support over 3,000 Skilled Nursing Facilities, visiting each weekly as expert wound consultants. In many cases, we also supply the patient’s wound care dressings through our integrated dressings program (DDP).We share our passion for wound care more broadly throughout the medical community –domestically and internationally –through our expert publications and technology platforms. Our mobile application includes an artificial-intelligence based wound care healing predictor. We created a dedicated online platform to deliver practical wound care education, which has been selected by many U.S. states as their preferred course.
