Affordable Results

HBS’s KollagenTM products help health care professionals manage overall wound care costs. Often, wound treatment involves a long and complicated process in which costs are difficult to measure. Health care providers will find that Medifil® II and Skin Temp® II products enhance the body's own natural healing capabilities and help achieve cost-effective wound management outcomes.

Achieving outcome-based wound healing can be a challenging process. Few universally accepted methods or definitions exist, and wound care outcomes vary from study to study. Although wound dressings amount to only 10% to 15% of total wound care expenses, many clinicians use conventional, less expensive dressings to reduce their overall costs. However, dressings with a lower unit cost can be cost prohibitive if they require more dressing changes and longer healing times.

Cost models and field data suggest that KollagenTM products achieve cost effective outcomes. Patients using Medifil® II and SkinTemp® II can require fewer support costs, such as reduced dressing changes and less nursing time. As a result, their overall wound care costs can be greatly reduced.
