Smith & Nephew Webinar: "Current and Future Challenges Within the Healthcare Environment: How a Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) System May Be the Solution"
with Kristi Huebner, RN, BSN, CSW, Professional Education Manager, Smith & Nephew and Scott Reid, Vice President Healthcare Strategy & Reimbursement, Healthcare Systems, Smith & Nephew
With an ever changing healthcare landscape, everyday there is an increased need to select products that are patient friendly, clinically effective and cost effective. In addition, there's an added pressure to streamline processes and simplify product offerings while keeping training and conversion cost down. Plus there's a quickly growing demand to reduce readmissions caused by surgical site infections and surgical site complications as the consequences thereafter can be enormous.
Join us as we introduce an innovative solution to your NPWT needs. The PICO System is a single use negative pressure device that offers all the same effectiveness of traditional NPWT in a small, discreet, pocket-sized system.
Listen as we review how this small yet powerful system may change how you view NPWT and how it may meet your needs for today and the expectations of tomorrow.
Topics to be discussed:
- Readmission penalties, VBP, ACO
- Medicare HHA changes for single-use NPWT in 2017
- Environmental influences for wound care
- The use and role of single patient use disposable NPWT devices today and in the future
