All of the highly regarded medical professionals who work with patients on behalf of Wound Care Surgeons are very experienced and capable, and they can deliver advanced wound consult and G-tube replacement services, among many others. Their overall goal is to provide highly coordinated and very efficient delivery of services from doctors, physicians assistants and nurses, that is focused on the patients, especially those with multiple chronic co-morbid conditions.

The creation of Wound Care Surgeons came about as a reaction to the reforms initiated under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA created many incentives for HMO and PPO insurance plans, as well as Medicaid and Medicare providers to explore groups capable of providing a lower-cost model that diverted a lot of healthcare away from traditional hospitals, and into other settings, like long term acute care services, skilled nursing facilities, rehab facilities, hospices and home health agencies, among others. Wound Care Surgeries will provide its services anywhere, which saves everyone a lot.

In its promotional materials, Wound Care Surgeons (“WCS”) bills itself as the leading surgeon-based provider of wound management services anywhere, but there is a lot more to their services than that. WCS is capable of provide expert wound care services wherever the patient happens to be, which is how they save the entire healthcare system a lot of money. By providing services in the home or facilities other than hospitals, they save the patient time and eliminate many associated costs that are usually absorbed by , such as transportation costs and admission fees, both of which can be very high, and even co-pays. This not only saves the patients, but it also saves their primary care physician and their insurance providers a lot of money, as well.

The creation of Wound Care Surgeons came about directly to take advantage of the reforms instigated under the Affordable Care Act, which created a lot of incentives for HMO and PPO insurance plans, as well as Medicare, and Medicaid providers to explore groups like Wound Care Surgeries as a low-cost delivery service model that diverts a lot of care away from expensive hospitals. This not only saves the patients, but it also saves their primary care physician and their insurance providers a lot of money, as well.

Overall, Wound Care Surgeons raises the level of wound care provided to all patients, even as they reduce costs. They manage patients throughout the Southwest United States, although their healing rates are tracked and benchmarked nationally. While their support structure focuses on Medicare compliance, they also coordinate care with physicians and mid-level providers. The program implemented by Wound Care Surgeons operated as something of an extension of the advanced evidence-based clinical pathways and they also expedite the healing process for wounds.
