SILICON VALLEY – WoundReference has recently become one of only 150 selected companies worldwide to secure a coveted presentation slot at the prestigious 11th annual Venture Summit West. The Silicon Valley-based event connects founders of the hottest venture backed, emerging, and early-stage companies with an exclusive audience of venture capitalists, corporate investors, private investors, investment bankers, and strategic partners.

WoundReference is a leading innovator in clinical, reimbursement and operations decision support platform for wound care. It addresses a US$32 billion problem, representing the annual expenditure on wound care in the United States. Despite this substantial investment, 50% of chronic wounds fail to heal. 

Chronic wounds are a silent epidemic. They are the leading cause of non-traumatic leg amputations, with a mortality rate worse than most cancers.” explains Elaine Song, CEO, and co-founder of WoundReference. “Our goal is to enhance the standard of care delivered by healthcare institutions by providing knowledge and decision support at the point of care. This approach has proven to achieve significantly better clinical outcomes, while ensuring institutions are working at their most efficient and effective levels.”
