Wall Street Journal - Treating Wounds-the Holistic Way
- April 16, 2012
This week's story focuses on the multidisciplinary approach the wound care team takes to tackle wounds before they "get out of control." The article highlights some of the treatment options available at Montefiore, as well as the home-care program for patients who have difficulty getting to appointments, and emphasizes that the goal of the program is to treat wounds early in order to prevent the need for expensive therapies later. The article also mentions Dr. Flattau's recent designation by CMS as an "Innovation Advisor" where she is testing a new model of healthcare delivery with the goal to "improve the quality of care while also reducing hospitalizations, emergency-room visits and total costs."
