Digital Health Firm, Corstrata, Wins Top Honors at TAG Health Event for Innovative Wound Management Solution


Corstrata improves patient outcomes and reduces care delivery costs for healthcare providers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Savannah, Georgia -- January 31, 2017


Corstrata co-founder and CEO Katherine Piette presenting at TAG Health Event, where she took home top honors.

Corstrata, a digital healthcare IT solution for wound management, announced today that it has been awarded first place at the Georgia Tech ATDC and TAG Health Tech Startup Expo. Corstrata was able to demonstrate how its solution helps healthcare providers gain greater access to wound experts and more effectively treat patients with complex wounds. The competition was hosted by the Clinical and Digital Health Sciences department in the College of Allied Health Sciences at Augusta University and was sponsored by Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), Atlanta Technology Development Center (ATDC) and The Clubhouse.

“Innovative companies like Corstrata are the reason why Georgia leads the nation in healthcare IT companies who are making a real, positive impact on improving patient outcomes and reducing costs,” said Michele Madison, Chairman of the TAG Health Society Board and partner at Morris Manning & Martin law firm. “The competition was strong, but Corstrata’s ability to help patients and providers effectively treat wounds that are often the result of chronic conditions and its ability to use technology to impact patient’s treatment plans were very impressive.”

Katherine Piette, Corstrata CEO and Founder who presented at the event, commented, “With the healthcare industry’s recent shift toward value-based care contracts, proper wound management has proven to be an area that can dramatically improve patient outcomes and lower care costs. We’ve been able to combine our deep, clinical expertise in wound management with advanced imaging and telemedicine technology to offer care providers a unique care delivery model for treating their wound patient populations.”

More attention is being placed on proper wound management due to the significant increase in chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, and the healthcare industry’s move to more value-based care contracts where providers’ reimbursements are often tied to their ability to improve patient outcomes and reduce care delivery costs.

To meet the unique needs of wound patients, Corstrata facilitates rapid healing and prevention of wound recurrence while giving providers, such as home health agencies, hospice organizations and skilled nursing facilities, greater access to wound care expertise. Payers, such as Medicare/Medicaid Managed Care, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and Third Party Administrators (TPAs), also benefit from Corstrata’s care management and coordination capabilities that help contain costs and improve the member’s experience.
