San Francisco, CA, March 19, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Local wound dressing formularies reinforce use of clinically appropriate and cost-effective products. The process of creating and maintaining a local wound dressing formulary is a multi-step approach that is time-consuming and discouraging to clinicians. Furthermore, the traditional intranet/print formats limit point-of-care access and interdepartmental dissemination.
To promote cost-effective wound care, the WoundReference team developed a point-of-care solution - the WoundReference Formulary Module (FM) – streamlining creation and management of wound care formularies. Content and tools of the FM that facilitate formulary decisions are based on internationally recognized clinical guidelines, systematic reviews and meta-analyses that are relevant to most countries. Impact of FM implementation in a U.S. hospital-based wound clinic (Newton Medical Center in Kansas) translates into a 36% decrease in product number, inventory cost savings of 7% and increased staff efficiency.
Receiving the Cost-effectiveness JWC Award was an inexpressible event in itself. WoundReference is a self-funded, digital health startup propelled by a passionate, multi-professional team whose mission is to empower wound care clinicians to achieve better outcomes more efficiently. The Woundreference team is excited to have its efforts acknowledged by the Journal of Wound Care, a world-renowned authority in cost-effectiveness.
