Partners with the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders
In late 2013, the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders and the US Wound Registry met with Medicare’s senior staff to discuss the need for Wound Care quality measures and address the fact there was no wound care medical society. CMS leaders agreed that the Alliance, as an “association of clinical associations representing Wound Care” could act as a de facto medical specialty for the field of Wound Care.
Together, the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders and the US Wound Registry collaborated to develop 12 Wound Care-relevant Quality measures as part of the US Wound Registry’s application for Quality Clinical Data Registry status. In January 2014, the US Wound Registry’s application was approved and Medicare approved all 12 Quality measures developed in collaboration with Alliance member organizations. Since 2014, the USWR has enabled Wound Care practitioners to participate in CMS quality reporting programs using measures that are relevant to their practice.
