Benefits for Organizations

  • The facility will never be billed by their group. PWS bills on Medicare Part B of the patient’s insurance.
  • Referrals should be based on the patient’s need rather than their insurance. If there is a wound/skin disorder on the patient, they will manage it regardless of payment. Every patient in your facility deserves the same level of care.
  • A good team is a knowledgeable team. Wound education will be provided to the nursing staff.
  • PWS is on-call for urgent needs and can perform telemedicine when required.
  • PWS works with your organization to create a cost-effective system.
  • PWS communicates with other physicians regarding their patient’s care and condition.
  • PWS practices defensive documentation
  • After discharge from facilities, the patient will go home with treatment plans and if needed, home visits by one of their practitioners.
