MyWoundDoctor® Supports Accountable Physician Groups with Telehealth Wound Care Services to Improve Care under Capitated Contracts

Nashville, TN — June 5, 2017 — Recognizing that most California health care services are provided through “at-risk” contracting, MyWoundDoctor®, LLC will display its cost-reducing telehealth services at the annual California Accountable Physician Groups (“CAPG”) conference, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego on June 22 – June 24, 2017.  

Wound care support in the US exceeds $60 billion annually in costs for services and supplies; and in far too many cases inappropriate care leads to extended hospital stays, amputations, and for pressure ulcer wound complications, over 60,000 deaths.”

MyWoundDoctor supports physicians, hospitals, nursing homes, health plans and patients with integrated and cost reducing telehealth wound care applications and services.  Offering simple mobile imaging of wounds and expert wound care advice, MWD provide patients with personalized wound care, at an affordable cost.

“My experience in reviewing acute and chronic wounds within hospitals, and seeing the hospital-incurred complications and patient suffering was eye-opening” said Nick Sieveking, MD, founder of Nashville, Tennessee – based MyWoundDoctor. “We knew that we could treat patients compassionately and more effectively through our PHI protected clinical review and treatment.  The money and time we saved our customers was significant,” added Dr. Sieveking.  

CAPG has expanded its leadership throughout the nation in helping their members approach best practices for capitated, coordinated care.  MyWoundDoctor became an affiliate member of CAPG because of its mission to transform health care delivery.  “I see us helping more patients through our telehealth platform; reaching patients in all urban and rural communities – helping them heal,” said Dr. Sieveking.
