VGM has rebranded its Wound Care Connection to VGM Wound Care, which also now offers additional tools and resources to help providers currently offering wound care products as well as those looking to enter into the market.
“Skin care and wound care affects each and every one of the patients HME providers work with,” said Heather Trumm, BSN, RN, CWON, director of VGM Wound Care. “Our expanded program can help VGM members effectively offer wound care products and services to fulfill patients’ needs, all while developing another revenue stream to increase business.”
Categories of wound care products covered in the program include dressings, therapeutic support surfaces, negative pressure wound therapy, ostomy, compression and nutrition. Each category will include support materials covering billing, incremental growth products, policies, education materials, vendor list and profitability calculator, to name a few.
Prior to launching the rebrand, Trumm has been shared her past nursing experience and wound care expertise at trade shows, seminars and webinars. She has also developed a wound care manual to help providers train their staff.
“I truly enjoy talking about the importance of proper wound care and how to integrate clinical resources with business solutions to manage an effective program,” she said. “Now that we’ve formally launched the expanded program, I look forward to continuing to share my knowledge with our membership community.”
