The Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders is a consortium of physician and clinical organizations that have an interest in wound care.
The mission and goals of the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders includes:
Access and Quality: To produce and deliver the highest quality (i.e., efficacy) of care. However, with today’s fiscal constraints, and with Medicare coverage policies and HCPCS coding severely impacting the introduction of new technology, patients are often denied access to the most clinically effective wound care treatments that are usually also more cost-effective.
Reimbursement: To decrease the number of reimbursement hurdles which may ultimately hinder the development of new therapies and treatments.
Education: To promote basic education about all the different types of wounds (ischemic, vascular, pressure, diabetic, etc.), how to address each to the entire health care delivery system and develop a wound specialty program within medical education.
