SAVANNAH, GA – MARCH 6, 2020 – Corstrata, a provider of digital healthcare IT solutions and services for wound prevention and care management, announced today that it will sponsor the second annual Post-Acute Care Wound Nurse Excellence Award. This Award is designed to recognize and honor the individual contributions of wound care clinicians for their knowledge and expertise in providing exceptional patient care using evidence-based best practices to accelerate patient wound healing, improve patient outcomes, and instill excellence in his/her overall practice of wound management.
Sponsored by CORSTRATA and hosted by the Post-Acute Care Symposium (PACS), the Post-Acute Care Wound Nurse Excellence Award is open to all clinicians working in post-acute care settings.

“We are excited to work with HMP, producers of the Post-Acute Care Symposium (PACS) and Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring meetings, to again offer this award that highlights and recognizes the critical importance of the work wound care clinicians are doing across the country in the post-acute setting,” commented Katherine Piette, CEO and Co-Founder, Corstrata. “Nominees will also gain great exposure for their work with entries being judged by our distinguished panel of judges that represent three of the top experts in the post-acute wound care industry.”
