The science of wound care has advanced significantly over the past ten years. The old thought of “let the air get at it” is now known to be harmful to healing. We know that wounds and ulcers heal faster, with a lower risk of infection, if they are kept covered and moist.
Chronic wounds are a significant health problem affecting millions of people. It is estimated that in excess of $25 billion is spent annually on the treatment of chronic wounds and that number is growing rapidly due in part to a sharp rise in the incidence of obesity and diabetes as well as an aging population.
- Incidence of acute and chronic wounds in India 10.5 and 4.48 per 1000 population.
- India has around 70 million diabetics of which 15-20% will develop diabetic foot ulcer.
- Venous insufficiency prevalence 40% of population with 2% developing ulcer.
- Pressure ulcer prevalence 4.9% of hospital admissions.
- India has the largest population of diabetics
- Up to 25% of patients with diabetes develop the corresponding ulcers of the foot. More than 50% of all foot ulcers become infected, requiring hospitalization, while 20% of infections result in amputation. Diabetes contributes approximately 80% of all non traumatic amputations performed every year.
- According to WHO 40,000 amputation occur per month in India, and has over 2 million amputees.
- After a major amputation, 50% of people will have the other limb amputated within two years time. People with a history of diabetic foot ulcer have a 40% greater 10-year death rate than people with diabetes alone.
Not all limbs can be salvaged
World Health Organization estimates that 85% of amputations are preventable.
Approximately 70% of all pressure ulcers occur in the geriatric population which can be prevented.
Providing clinically excellent and cost effective wound care remains both a goal and a challenge for many hospitals. The healthcare industry has struggled with cost and quality issues in many arenas for years but wound management has only recently become one of the metrics assessed.
The market for wound management services is large, often underserved, and growing. It is estimated that more than 20 million people in the India (2% of the total population) experience a chronic, nonhealing wound and require care. Once a hospital realizes the need for a formalized wound care program, it must decide if it has the capacity and resources to start one on its own or if it should outsource to a wound care management company.
Developing a program can be time-intensive and burdensome to staff, education, marketing, and finance. While many of the necessary components of the program can be acquired separately and “assembled” by the hospital, this requires a significant investment in acquiring the knowledge base to assess these components; plus, the time and cost of acquiring and assembling these components (from education of professional staff to database design and validation) can be prohibitive or extend the time from concept to program implementation. Development costs, as well as the ongoing expense of keeping the program updated, need to be carefully planned. Hospital “home grown” programs can fail to heal wounds as quickly as possible and miss opportunities to utilize hospital services.
For these reasons, many hospitals utilize the outsourced services of a management company with expertise in all areas of wound care that can provide a comprehensive, proven approach to wound care management. Outsourcing wound management services does not reflect on the abilities of current clinicians — rather, it allows clinicians to focus on care while other duties are handled elsewhere.
