Overcome Industry Pressures with a Trusted Partner

Every step in the healthcare value chain is confronting inflationary pressure, with increasing healthcare costs and supply chain disruptions, health systems are facing a wide range of pressures to maintain affordable wound care while attaining positive clinical outcomes.

While product costs inflate, reimbursement rates are not, leading to a substantial adverse effect on healthcare margins. Further, failures in the healthcare supply chain are creating backorders, additional price increases, and leaving healthcare providers without the essential everyday products they need to ensure proper care.

Payer and provider executives reported that they expect a drop in margins between 25 and 75 percent or one to three percentage points. Many payer and provider organizations have 2 to 4 percent operating margins, implying that earnings could be wiped out due to current financial pressures.
