Abstract

North Mississippi Medical Center learned four important lessons in its effort to standardize wound care products and processes of care: Designate clinical champions. Limit the number of vendors that provide products for a specialty. Reduce the number of similar-function wound care products that are available for use, with decisions guided by clinicians. Provide transparent information related to cost, the intentions of the initiative, usage patterns, and the criteria for evaluation.
