Enhance Wound Population Management and Standardize Care Delivery

Wound ostomy continence care cases are among the most complex, resource-intensive and costliest cases your home care or hospice agency must address. Without standardized care delivery, your agency may experience financial losses due to insufficient wound population management, a lack of true care coordination, inconsistent supply use, and uneven, incomplete or incorrect documentation.

McKesson Homecare™ Wound Advisor helps you enhance wound population management and standardize care delivery. Our system allows one wound ostomy continence (WOC) or specialty nurse to care for four times as many patients as is possible with the traditional in-home visit model.

McKesson Homecare™ Wound Advisor is a component of the McKesson Homecare™ suite of products. The home health wound care system's standardized assessments help improve consistency of care and supply use, while automated alerts help support more proactive care delivery by warning about patients in decline. All information flows directly into the single integrated database to improve care coordination and facilitate cost and care analysis.
