Since 1998, The American Association of Wound Care Management (AAWCM) has actively represented practitioners and organizations involved in the wound care field (providers, management companies, manufactures, product supply companies, etc.) to assure the continued recognition of the growing importance of wound care in medicine today. Through active lobbying on Capitol Hill, regular contact with CMS, and interaction with private insurers, AAWCM has had a significant impact on the acceptance of clinical indications for service, coverage determinations, and payment policy.

Our Mission

The mission of AAWCM is to be a proactive champion of wound care and an advocate for its member organizations by enhancing the understanding and acceptance of comprehensive wound healing programs and adjunctive wound healing products and services. Through its efforts, AAWCM also hopes to improve patient awareness of and access to these clinically efficacious and cost effective services.
