It is estimated that chronic wounds affect 6.7 million people in the U.S. and that number is rising, fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of conditions such as diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy. If left untreated chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb.
Healogics Wound Care Center at Hudson Regional Hospital offers an evidence-based, systematic approach to advanced wound care. A patient's individualized treatment plan may include specialized wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, advanced cellular products and topical growth factors, edema management and/or non–invasive vascular assessment. These treatments are the result of a team approach between the Center's physicians, nurses and the referring physician. A treatment plan is developed and scheduled based on the patient's needs. Once treatment is complete, the patient will return to their primary physician to continue routine care.
Additionally, Healogics Wound Care Center at Hudson Regional Hospital will be equipped with Healogics newest technologies: Clinical Optimizations and Decision SupportsM. These applications on Healogics' WoundSuitesM platform, enable the critical connection between people living with chronic wounds and their multidisciplinary healthcare team for collaborative, evidence–based, patient–centered care.
