Ordering wound care dressing supplies can prove to be a frustrating task for many providers and clinicians. Unfortunately, I have encountered many health care providers that describe feelings of dread when working with their durable medical equipment (DME) counterparts.
Product substitution has been a prominent issue, especially of late with many reimbursement changes coming down the pike. This can lead to revenue loss via providing the patient with clinic supplies, and frustration for all parties involved.
