CONSUMERS @ HOME
Home-based, health care consumers – patients – frequently suffer from hard-to-heal or complex wounds as a result of surgery, circulation disorders or diabetic ulcers. People with disabilities or with chronic illnesses that keep them in bed or in a wheelchair may also experience wounds caused by pressure on specific parts of their body. In fact, more than one-quarter of all home-based care is wound care related, and soon becoming one of the fastest growing needs to help care for patients at home.
MyWoundDoctor helps patients, their personal caregivers, and supportive patient family members deal with complex wounds through its proprietary complete wound management services.
