FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
San Diego, CA — June 26, 2016 — MyWoundDoctor®, LLC joined CAPG (California Accountable Physicians Group), the leading U.S. trade association for and the voice of accountable physician organizations, and exhibited at the CAPG Annual Conference, where over 1,600 health care leaders from around the country attend each year. The MyWoundDoctor’s wound care telehealth service was demonstrated to risk-based medical groups, showing how to reduce wound care-related expenses by more than 60 percent. Several physician groups, hospitals and health plans are considering wound telehealth, as a way to extend their reach, improve patient compliance and reduce their costs.
“CAPG has a reputation for leading innovations in health care delivery. We are pleased to bring telehealth support to wound care, reducing the cost and time to heal, for our customers and their patients,” said Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, MyWoundDoctor’s Chief Medical Officer. “We have visible proof that our clinical insights and protocols will help patients heal rapidly, based on comparative images of the patient’s wound over time. When the provider avoids thousands of dollars of unnecessary acute or office care services, all stakeholders benefit from our focused clinical expertise,” added Dr. Sieveking.
David Owen, MyWoundDoctor Chief Operating Officer said, “California health care providers have led the nation in risk-based contracts that are value, rather than volume based. As government and commercial payors move to value-based contracts, solutions like MyWoundDoctor will expand access to treatment for a fraction of the cost. We believe the drive to risk-based delivery models will increase the adoption of telehealth solutions to manage the outcomes and cost of wound care.”
MyWoundDoctor supports physicians, hospitals, health plans and patients with integrated and cost reducing telehealth wound care clinical services. Offering simple mobile imaging of wounds and expert wound care advice, MyWoundDoctor provides patients with personalized wound care, at an affordable cost through certified wound care nurses with physician oversight. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, MyWoundDoctor is licensd to provide consultations in over 40 states, and provides a case rate fee for telehealth consultation and daily medical supplies, based on the expected duration of wound treatment. The company is headquartered in Nashville, TN. www.mywounddoctor.com
