Using a team-centered approach for weekly wound rounds, we support our partner facility wound care teams through encouragement, education and documentation to ensure quality patient outcomes. Our collaborative partnership results in enhanced patient care, more efficient weekly patient wound rounds, and improved quality outcomes and state survey scores.
Faster Wound Healing
The nursing experience and expertise in our partner facilities, combined with our expertise and proven treatment methods, drastically improves the healing rate of chronic wounds. Our patients with chronic wounds heal twice as fast as the national average.*

Advanced Education & Prevention
As part of our collaborative team approach, our wound care clinicians provide our facility partners with the information they need on acute and chronic wound treatment and prevention. We offer education in the treatment and prevention of many types of complex wounds so that our partner caregivers can be informed colleagues in our team-based model of wound care delivery. We also offer free education through Heal University.
Comprehensive Documentation & Reports
We offer our client partners online access to state-of-the-art software for wound healing excellence and electronic health records called Wound Synergy. Our partner caregivers find Wound Synergy an invaluable tool for streamlining their workflow, monitoring quality and customizing patient care.
Improved Quality Outcomes
United Wound Healing has a 100% federal and state citation-free record, and the facilities we partner with have developed reputations of excellence, not only in wound care, but with their overall star rating. This has led to a number of facilities increasing their patient census.
