      Outpatient Wound Care

      Wound Care, providing much needed and often overlooked services to patients.


      Outpatient wound care programs provide a much-needed and often overlooked service to patients. Renowned for our wound care expertise in outpatient clinics, OIS collaborates with our customers to eliminate inefficiencies in patient care and operations. Our partnership approach generates tremendous results, even as we continue to formulate innovative solutions to help customers navigate some of healthcare’s most complicated issues.

      Types of Wounds Commonly Seen Include:

      • Venous Ulcers
      • Pressure Ulcers
      • Diabetic Lower Extremity Ulcers
      • Non-Healing Surgical Wounds
      • Arterial Ulcers
      • Burns
      • Necrotizing Infections

      Treatments are reimbursed through Medicare and private insurance carriers and repeat patient visits generally provide a healthy, reliable revenue stream. Program startup and development times are measured in weeks and months, instead of years, and wound care programs can operate in a wide range of facility types.

      Outpatient Integrated Services has helped hospital administrators develop wound care programs and operate their services with an OIS-mindset that leverages cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and patient satisfaction.

      Financial Risks of Unmanaged Wound Care

      Financial Risks of Unmanaged Wound Care
      4 additional days per discharge
      a 7.5% increase in mortality discharges

      The costs associated with inpatient wound treatment programs can vary depending on several factors. The severity and complexity of the wound play a significant role in determining the expenses involved, and the length of the hospital stay contributes to the overall expenses. The Advisory Board estimates that, across the board, inpatient wounds lead to higher costs, lengthier stays, and an increase in mortality discharges.

      Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

      Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

      Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is recognized as an evidence-based adjunct therapy in the treatment of non-healing wounds and amputation prevention.  The clear chambers are equipped with televisions and comfortable bedding, so patients are free to watch their favorite television shows or a movie, or even sleep. During the treatments, the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber, quickly increasing the concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream, where it is delivered to a patient’s wound site for faster healing. Essentially, HBOT therapy helps heal the wound from the inside out.

      Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a safe and evidence-based treatment proven to speed the healing process in certain types of wounds including:

      Delayed radiation injury – soft tissue and bone necrosis

      Compromised skin grafts and flaps

      Chronic osteomyelitis – refractory

      Diabetic ulcers

      Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency


      Radiation proctitis/enteritis

      Radiation induced cystitis

      Necrotizing soft tissue infections

      Crush injury

      Idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss

      The HBOT component of the wound program may benefit the hospital by:

      • Adding advanced wound healing capability
      • Reducing amputation rates
      • Improving healing rates for problem or hard-to-heal wounds
