Wound Care: Picking the Right Path
Wound care can put HME providers in the fast lane to increased profitability, but which is the right on-ramps for your business?
Wound care offers providers an excellent opportunity to diversify their revenues, because of the wide variety of patient groups and referral partners that need these products and services. Furthermore, from a care perspective, becoming part of a patient's "wound care team” affords providers the ability to make dramatic improvements in a patient’s life. (With the right products and expertise, the results can sometimes be nothing short of miraculous).
But many providers aren’t sure where to begin. The options for products and the different areas of specialization can seem intimidating, but setting up a wound care practice is not nearly as hard as it might seem. What providers need is a road map. This webinar will help interested providers understand the market basics, the various wound care categories, and the payment opportunity for the HME provider.
What You'll Learn:
- Understanding the wound care market.
- How and why the wound care market is growing.
- Pinpointing the market segments and referral sources.
- Identifying payment and revenue sources.
- The three major wound care categories an HME provider would supply.
