About the Disease
Wound care refers to specific types of treatment for pressure sores , skin ulcers and other wounds that break the skin. Decubitus ulcers, also called “bed sores” are wounds that commonly develop at pressure points on the body when the weight of an immobilized individual rests continuously on a hard surface such as a mattress or wheel chair. Uninterrupted pressure is the cause of pressure sores and relieving pressure is the mainstay of wound care. Other wounds that may benefit from specialized wound care techniques are diabetic foot ulcers, traumatic ulcers caused by injury, arterial and vein ulcers caused by lack of circulation, and burns.
About our Patient Care
Our dedicated Care Team will work with the physician's office and insurance on a patient's behalf so that our patients have more time to focus on their treatment and quality of life. We are here to listen, provide
counseling on treatment, including side-effect management, and assist with sourcing third-party financial assistance.
As part of treatment, we provide:
Dedicated Care Team
We provide prescribers and patients with a dedicated care team for each of our disease state programs. This includes a primary pharmacy contact, clinical education, side-effects management, scheduled refill calls, and a direct phone, fax and email address.
Shipping and Coordination of Care
We provide free overnight delivery of medications and necessary medical supplies and manage the coordination of care between prescribers, sites of care, nurses and patients to ensure dispenses and drug delivery align with the date and location of service.
We successfully identify and assist enrolling patients into any and all manufacturer co-pay and foundation support programs in order to minimize a potential financial burden to patients given the high-cost of specialty medications.
24/7/365 Access to a Pharmacist
We provide prescribers and patients access to a pharmacist 24/7/365 to ensure patients are always cared for.
