In a podcast by Industry Matters, Wayne van Halem, president of The van Halem Group, and Joseph Ault, sales manager for GEMCO, discuss CGM audits, qualifications for reimbursement and documentation, as well as the opportunities in the diabetic market.   
  • Wound Awareness on Moist Wound Environment: When thinking about wound care awareness month, all the common topics that affect wound healing come to mind - good nutrition, offloading, managing the disease state, debridement, compression, etc. Heather Trumm outlines the importance of moist wound healing and how keeping a wound moist during the healing process is one of the most important aspects of wound healing.
