Telewound Management: A Model for Value-Based Care

7th Annual GPT TeleHealth Summit March 3rd, 2016

Page 2: GPT 2016 Presentation

The Wound Problem

Page 3: GPT 2016 Presentation

The Problem | Overall wound cost & prevalence

Wound Type Cost ($BN) Patients (000’s)

Pressure Ulcer 11.6 2,500 Diabetic Ulcer 13.0 4,000 Venous Ulcer 3.5 600

Increasing prevalence: •  Aging population (10K baby boomers turn 65 each day) •  Increase in prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases •  8% annual growth

Multiple providers impacted: •  Skilled Nursing Homes •  Home Health Agencies •  Prisons •  Hospices

•  Small, Rural Hospitals •  LTACs •  Capitated or Risk Based Delivery

Models

Page 4: GPT 2016 Presentation

Pressure Ulcers: •  Prevalence by setting:

•  15% hospital patients •  29% LTC patients

•  2.5M pressure ulcers treated annually at cost of $11B (US) •  Facility acquired pressure ulcers:

•  CMS “never event” •  Hospitals – currently not reimbursed by CMS •  LTC Facilities – not reimbursed beginning 2017 by CMS

•  60,000 US patients die every year from pressure ulcers •  Cost of care ranges from $20K to $150K

The Problem | By wound type

Page 5: GPT 2016 Presentation

Diabetic Ulcers: •  25% of diabetics develop foot ulcers •  23M diabetic (5% of population) •  Each year 5% of diabetics develop foot ulcers with 1% (>86K ) requiring

amputation at cost of $38K/amputation

Venous Ulcers: •  Affects 600K annually •  $9,600/ulcer to treat •  Equates to $2.5-3.5B annual problem

Surgical Wounds:

•  71.5M surgeries per year

The Problem | By wound type

Page 6: GPT 2016 Presentation

Home Health •  33 % home health patients have wounds

•  42% multiple wounds •  40% surgical wounds •  25% vascular leg ulcers •  25% pressure ulcers

Hospice •  35% hospice patients have wounds

•  50% pressure ulcers •  20% arterial ulcers •  30% mixed (surgical, stasis, skin tears, & tumors)

SNF •  ≈ 20% SNF patients have wounds

The Problem | By provider

Page 7: GPT 2016 Presentation

Wound Care is not a discrete medical specialty •  Lack of formal wound management & training •  Decreases access to evidence-based wound care •  Decreases adoption of evidence-based wound care •  Produces large variability in wound care practices

Wound Care practice often relies on: •  Personal experience with wound treatment •  Opinion of colleague(s)

The Problem | No designated specialty

Page 8: GPT 2016 Presentation

Certified wound care nurses •  <0.2% of all registered nurses •  Nurse treatment time limits effectiveness:

•  On site can treat 5-6 patients/day •  Remotely can treat 15-20 patients/day

•  Annual salary & benefits: $90K Certified wound care physicians (MD, DO, DPM) •  368 physicians in the U.S. •  Wound education: American medical students are inadequately

trained in wound care. * *Annals of Plastic Surgery. 2007 Jul;59(1):53-5.

The Problem | Scarcity of wound specialists

Page 9: GPT 2016 Presentation

Risk Exposure •  17K pressure ulcer related lawsuits filed annually •  87% of settlements/verdicts reached in favor of the patient •  Pressure ulcer lawsuits in acute & long-term care are increasing •  Judgments as high as $312M

The Problem | Risk exposure

Page 10: GPT 2016 Presentation

•  Time: •  Dressing changes are time consuming

•  Lack of knowledge & education about: •  Basic wound evaluation/assessment •  Wound treatments & management practices •  Wound prevention protocols •  Use of advanced supplies and treatment modalities

•  Lack of standardization of: •  Wound measurements •  Wound outcomes/metrics •  Wound quality reporting

The Problem | Barriers to wound care

Page 11: GPT 2016 Presentation

The Problem | High cost of wound care

•  Materials (dressings & therapies): •  Can reduce material costs by:

•  Improving healing times •  Prevention of acquired pressure ulcers

•  Nursing time: •  Dependent on:

•  Dressing change frequency •  Number of wounds •  Associated wound documentation time

•  Can reduce nursing time by: •  Improving healing time

•  Use of advanced dressings •  Use of advanced therapies

•  Preventing acquired pressure ulcers •  Providing streamlined wound software

•  Wound related hospitalizations: •  Can reduce hospitalizations:

•  Using evidence-based best practice guidelines •  Using wound certified clinical experts •  Using advanced wound treatments

Wounds represent 4% of total healthcare costs
