With an outstanding heal rate of 90% (100% epithelialized), our quality
improvement and accountability programs offer all the tools and services needed
to run a world class, clinically effective, financially successful wound healing
program. We provide a comprehensive, inter-disciplinary approach to treating
patients in a medically driven, surgically oriented manner that will effectively
heal wounds that resist conventional therapies.
Our success is the result of our ability to measure results and adjust our
processes to create improved healing rates and performance. Praxis has developed
the tools and systems that provide the structure for predictable and measurable
results. With our Web-Based Outcome Management and Tracking System, we set clear
standards with your requirements in mind. As we accurately track outcomes, we
also incorporate national benchmarking and Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs)
to ensure that your goals as well as our corporate standards are met.
Web-Based Outcome Management & Tracking System
We have a comprehensive, state-of-the-art, web-based wound care outcome tracking
and management system capable of monitoring our CPGs, storing and
retrieving digital images and patient assessments, customizing reports, and
externally benchmarking data. With proper security clearance, physicians can log
on from the office, home or while traveling to access individual patient records
and outcome reports. Approved users can also modify or create reports based on
information tracked by the database.
Clinical outcomes are assessed by using standard evaluation tools, proper
documentation, and a proprietary version of a web-based wound outcomes database.
Outcome data from each center are reviewed quarterly in comparison with internal
benchmarking data against other affiliated programs in
a "blinded" fashion, against corporate aggregate
outcomes, and against other published benchmark parameters. Outliers are
identified on an ongoing, monthly basis to identify patients requiring
reassessment or altered management.
Medical Quality Assessment
Medical performance is specifically addressed via our Medical Quality Assessment
(MQA) program that involves an annual medical care and documentation review
performed by our Chief Medical Officer or one of its Associate Medical
Directors. A quarterly MQA and review of outcomes are held with all center
Medical Directors to review outcome data, outlier patient care issues and other
aspects of medical care.
