Heartland Conference Sneak Peek: Wound Care Best Practices

Published in Wound Care on April 26, 2022

Heather TrummLooking to expand your wound care business?  Look no further than the wound care expert panel discussion at Heartland.  We have the honor and privilege of hosting some very knowledgeable members who are successful in wound care. 

Come and interact with the panel to discuss topics like:

  • How are referral sources reached to market HME wound care services?
  • What are recommendations and best practices for:
    • Growing the wound care business
    • Increasing profitability
    • Workflow efficiency
    • Processes of discharges from hospitals/SNF’s to home
  • Wound Care Outcomes Program

These are just a few of the topics that will be discussed. 

Wounds are not going away, which means as a home medical equipment community we need to stay engaged in this area. Determining which wound care category to invest in is an important discussion for each company.

Is wound care an opportunity for your service area? Many HMEs wonder where exactly to start when entering this business.  The beginning of our session will review those aspects of starting a program or starting a new category.  Wound care as it relates to the HME world can be addressed as surgical dressings, negative pressure wound therapy, therapeutic support surfaces, nutrition, and compression.  Each category’s workflow is a little different, so it’s very important to start off correctly.  These are all questions we will discuss in the wound care panel discussion during Heartland.  We are excited to see you!

At this year’s Heartland Conference, join VGM Wound care director, Heather Trumm BSN, RN, CWON, to learn how to be successful in the wound care market. Learn more and register at vgmheartland.com.
