Hospital Wound Care

Hospital Wound Care

Wounds seen in the hospital are frequently acute, trauma, burns or surgical in nature. The need for advanced wound care products is increasing owing to the growing incidence of chronic wounds, increasing demand for reducing hospital stay, and the rising number of surgeries in the U.S.

Rising incidence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and other autoimmune disorders is anticipated to increase the incidence rate of chronic wounds in the U.S. Factors such as antimicrobial resistance, unhealthy & sedentary lifestyles, and tobacco & alcohol consumption is contributing to rising prevalence of non-communicable diseases. The failures of present wound healing therapies will drive hospital admissions for treatment.

The rising number of surgical procedures is also expected to boost demand for home healthcare services. Most patients prefer home healthcare services over hospital stays. These services offer several advantages and hospital wound clinics will need to coordinate treatment protocols.

Advanced wound care upcoming growth is likely to take place in infection management. Among infection management, the demand for treating diabetic foot ulcers, and surgical wounds remains highest. Additionally, advanced wound care upcoming growth promises to shift towards outpatient care, which continues to occupy larger share as compared to inpatient costs. The shift has occurred due to high costs of hospitalization, and delayed treatment for inpatient care due the covid-19 pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic delayed wound care management much like it did for various other treatments. This resulted in an increased shift for wound management through new distribution channels like telehealth.
