The overall purpose and the healthcare mission of Wound Care Surgeons derives from a number of reforms to healthcare delivery instituted under the Affordable Care Act, or ACA. One of the primary cost saving measures championed in the ACA led to the creation of WCS in the first place. The law provide significant incentive for HMO and PPO insurance plans, as well as Medicare, and Medicaid providers to explore WCS as low-cost delivery model of service, even as a lot of care has been diverted away from hospitals. WCS is more likely to provide services to long term acute care services (LTACS), skilled nursing facilities (SNF), rehab facilities, hospices and home health agencies than at hospitals. That is by design.
The fine professional medical personnel at Wound Care Surgeons (WCS) are all quite experienced and capable at their mission, which is to deliver medical care that is more streamlined and more patient-oriented than was the case in the past. Among the clients they provide services to include long term acute care services, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation facilities, home health agencies and hospices. For all such facilities, Wound Care Surgeons provides the most advanced wound consult and treatment, but because they are efficient and willing to work anywhere, they save insurance companies a lot of money.
For all such facilities, Wound Care Surgeons provides the most advanced wound consult and treatment, as well as gastrostomy tube replacement available, and they do it all wherever the patient is located. They also provide mobile x-ray services. The programs they implement operates as something of an extension of the advanced evidence-based clinical pathways and they also expedite the healing process for wounds.
