Posted on in Education and Events

We’ve been keeping pretty busy at VGM, and we’re excited to meet up with you face-to-face at Medtrade Oct. 15-17 in Atlanta to show you what we’ve been working on. Please stop by our booth, #1627…there’s a lot to see. 

Now, if Medtrade doesn’t fit into your schedule this year, we invite you to check out a sampling below of the types of tools and resources we’ve developed for our valued members such as you.

We're Launching Our Next Playbook

In the previous playbooks, we covered top initiatives and how to capitalize on opportunities. Now, we’re tackling billing and reimbursement.

Check Out the DMEPOS Geographic Classification Maps

This tool is designed to assess where CMS has deemed rural, non-rural, and competitive bidding areas to be. Data is compiled from multiple public sources, and the maps are divided into four categories and contain the locations of critical access hospitals. It features interactive maps for all 50 states, so providers can determine which category a ZIP code falls under. Click here for the maps.

Calculate Your Oxygen Profitability

The oxygen profitability calculator is a tool for VGM Respiratory members to determine their growth margin based on the oxygen delivery model. The different models include nocturnal, stationary, and portable with conserving device, self-fill system, liquid and portable oxygen concentrator. With each model, you also have a tool for delivery expense. This is a fully comprehensive tool to have a better understanding of costs and expenses.

Look Into CPAP Fulfillment…and Compression, Too

VGM Fulfillment is expanding its offering of services outside of CPAP fulfillment to now offer compression stocking fulfillment. Partnering with major manufacturers and with two distribution centers, the new service allows seamless delivery or resupply of compression stockings to patients or providers located throughout the U.S.   

Learn About Our New Wound Care Program

VGM is launching an expanded wound care offering to help address the growing demand for treatment and care for people who have developed and/or are living with wounds. Programs and resources will help providers expand existing wound care offerings or diversify into this growing market. VGM Wound Care will offer a full spectrum of products and services including negative pressure wound therapy, therapeutic support surfaces, compression therapy, surgical dressings, and ostomy. Current VGM members can join for free!
