Do you need professional wound care evaluation and treatment at home? MD24 House Call’s Wound Care program is now expanding throughout the Phoenix metro area to meet your need.
A chronic wound is generally a wound that doesn’t start to heal within four weeks or hasn’t healed within eight weeks. If you are currently suffering from the variety of wounds, typically experienced by the senior population, MD24 House Call has a valuable treatment program for you. We bring our wound care specialist team directly to your home, managed by board-certified clinicians and physician specialists.
While underlying causes of chronic wounds vary from patient to patient, they tend to occur in patients with poor blood circulation, diabetes, or other reasons related to a patient’s condition. Pressure ulcers (sometimes called “bed sores”), for example, can develop in patients who are confined to bed, and can evolve into chronic wounds. Likewise, for a person with diabetes, a simple foot blister may result in a chronic open sore or serious life-threatening infection. Each MD24 House Call patient will receive an initial evaluation of the wound, medical history and current health by a team of wound care specialist(s) and board certified clinicians. Next, an individualized, aggressive treatment program is planned using our multidisciplinary medical team. Beside routine wound-care equipments, MD24’s clinicians have direct access to physician specialists via MD24 Telemedicine.
The key to our program is education of patients, family members, caregivers and other healthcare providers and by establishing a proactive program of prevention and timely appropriate intervention. Wound management involves a comprehensive care plan with consideration of all factors contributing to and affecting the wound and the patient. No single discipline can meet all the needs of a patient with a wound. The best outcomes are generated by dedicated, well educated personnel with multiple disciplines working together for the common goal of patient care. Our provider’s role is to assist in the development of a sustainable plan designed to help achieve mutually agreed upon goals. We are saving tax payers and health insurance by reducing unnecessary visits to expensive wound-care facilities.
MD24 House Call’s Wound Care Management Program has been successfully implemented in the Northwest Valley and we are now expanding to residents in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Independent and Assisted Living facilities throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area, especially for existing MD24 House Call’s clients. We are also expanding our reach into group homes, private homes and rural communities along with an innovative telemedicine patent that will allow patients, who register with MD24 House Call, instant access to one of our specialized clinicians along with other physician specialists anywhere, anytime – any day.
Our established wound-care program is run and managed by our experienced team of healthcare professionals that includes a physician managed group of wound care specialists including nurse practitioners, physician assistants and our specialized wound nurse specialist. We also have three highly trained board-certified podiatrists on staff and associations with a variety of dermatologist(s) and physician specialists for complicated wound care management. All appropriate wound care treatment will be provided to you in the comfort and safety of your own home. Because we have contracts with almost all private payers and Medicare, we bill Medicare Part B and private health plans, therefore you are not paying for any additional fee. We also work closely with home health and hospice agencies to bring additional wound nurses to your home if necessary.
