Kestrel Health Information joins HMP Global: two premier and trusted health care companies with more than 60 years of experience have come together to cover your every educational need in wound care.
In March 2021, HMP Global acquired Kestrel Health Information, Inc. Now, WoundSource®, WoundCon®, the world’s largest virtual wound care conference, and the WoundSource® Academy join HMP Global’s expansive portfolio of educational events and publications for clinicians that includes the renowned Symposium on Advanced Wound Care, the largest in-person gathering of wound care professionals; the Wound Certification Prep Course, the leading recommended review course by the ABWM Foundation for clinicians interested in preparing for the wound certification board exams, becoming recertified or gaining a more advanced understanding in wound care; the Post-Acute Care Symposium, providing practical and clinically relevant education for caregivers in long-term care, home care and hospice settings; and a complete portfolio of award-winning print and digital publications, including Wounds, Wound Management & Prevention, Today’s Wound Clinic, and Podiatry Today.
The merger of these two leading portfolios means that no matter your skill level, care setting or stage in your career, HMP Global has something for you. You’ll have continued access to hands-on, practical information to guide your clinical practice, whether
through attendance at one of our online or in-person learning opportunities throughout the year, or by accessing the latest research and decision-driving information in wound management through our digital and print publications.
You can also expect more from us, with even greater options and opportunities. We now reach more than 90% of wound care clinicians in the United States and have a fast-growing international audience across all wound care events, websites and publications. We aim to close the gap to make wound care education accessible to all wound care clinicians, not just in the United States, but around the world—which the merger will enable us to do faster than ever before.
Kestrel Health Information and HMP Global’s shared passion for clinical education and improving patient outcomes made the acquisition of WoundSource a natural next step in the companies’ evolution. We look forward to continuing to serve you with best-in-class wound care education year-round. Look for special announcements on new offerings from WoundSource and HMP Global this summer.
