Organogenesis Presents Findings from Groundbreaking Research Highlighting the Healthcare Resource and Economic Burden of Venous Leg Ulcers and Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Date:5/22/2013

more medical resources during the 12-month follow-up period, including increases in days hospitalized (+138.2% Medicare, +173.5% private), days requiring home health care (+85.4% Medicare, +230.0% private), emergency department visits (+40.6% Medicare, +109.0% private), and outpatient/physician office visits (+35.1% Medicare, +42.5% private).  This resulted in costs among DFU patients of approximately twice that of matched non-DFU diabetic patients, with annual incremental per-patient healthcare costs of $11,296 for Medicare and $15,329 for privately-insured patients. These findings suggest an annual payer burden associated with DFUs of up-to $15 billion.

A poster presentation, titled "Medical, Drug and Work-loss Costs of Venous Leg Ulcers," unveiled findings from the first study to analyze  the US resource and economic burden imposed by VLUs, which are the most frequently occurring type of chronic leg wound, estimated to affect approximately 2.5 million patients in the US per year.[3],[4]

Results showed that compared to non-VLU matched patients, VLU patients were found to be nearly twice as costly as the general population for private payers and 50% more costly for Medicare. VLU patients utilized more medical resources, including more days hospitalized (+80.6% Medicare, +83.5% private), days requiring home health care (+74.4% Medicare, +202.8% private), emergency department visits (+36.5% Medicare, +46.9% private), and outpatient/physician office visits (+27.3% Medicare, +39.7% private).  These findings suggest an annual payer burden of up to $18 billion.

"These startling results highlight the urgent crisis posed on our health care system by DFUs and VLUs, and should serve as a call to action for improving both the prevention and aggressive treatment of these wounds," said Geoff MacKay , president and CEO of Organogenesis Inc.  "With approaches currently available, including living c
