Friday, March 13, 2015

MIRAMAR, Fla. – Univita Health’s new wound care program aims to reduce costs and improving outcomes by managing at-risk patients and reducing hospital admissions. “Without Univita’s interventions in providing proactive, specialized care for these complex, chronically ill patients, these individuals would have experienced hospitalizations and extensive surgery,” said Dr. Manny Selva, chief medical officer at Miramar, Fla.-based Univita in a release. Of those patients enrolled in the program: 92% were discharged with healed wounds; 64% of patients’ wounds had healed or were significantly reduced in size within 90 days, according to the release.
