Quality Outcomes 

A database of outcomes within the Comprehensive Wound Center is used to evaluate process improvement activities, demonstrate the impact of treatment plan changes and provide data to measure against national benchmarks.

The outcome measurements that facilitate benchmark measuring include:

  • Healing time (from the first time the patient is seen in the wound
    care center until a physician provides written documentation
    that the wound is healed).

  • Amputation rates (the number of patients that receive an amputation despite aggressive wound care treatment by the wound care team).
