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.
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.
