TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 8, 2020 — VGM & Associates, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive Member Service Organization (MSO) has partnered with Healiant Training Solutions, a Florida-based training and education company founded by Wound Care veterans, to provide Basic and Advanced Wound Care training and education to its member dealers. Healiant will conduct both live, eLive and eLearning classes to VGM’s members and their affiliated post-acute care providers. Healiant is the world’s first and only Advanced Wound Care Concepts education provider.
“The forward thinking service providers and healthcare providers are focused on patient outcomes,” Heather Trumm, VGM’s Director of Wound Care. “And it only follows that better outcomes result from having more competent, educated and knowledgeable people.”
VGM members will also have access to future Healiant educational content covering basic wound care, skin integrity, incontinence, infection prevention, safe patient handling, advanced dressings, negative pressure wound therapy and adjunctive therapies, as well as non-care areas such as reimbursement, PDPM/PDGM basics and other important and relevant topics.
“Before the new PDPM/PDGM reimbursement model, providers would avoid patients with complex wounds,” said Josh Heuchan, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Healiant Training Solutions. “But now, as wound care becomes a broader focus for all long term care providers including nursing homes and home care agencies, the ones who win that patient population in this new world order and earn referrals from the hospitals and clinics will be those who can prove that they are better at healing wounds. While some HME/DMEs are trying to do some level of product education in- house, they realize that training and education is not their core competency and is better outsourced to a firm that is dedicated to providing best in class programs.”
