Abstract

The healthcare industry is changing, posing challenges to Medicare-certified home healthcare agencies (HHAs). With healthcare reform and the 2011 prospective payment system changes, including reduction in reimbursement to agencies, it is imperative to assess an organization's wound care program. HHAs must provide quality care at lower costs, using evidence-based medicine that may include nontraditional approaches to providing care.
