About DROP

OUR PROGRAM

Consistent Observation & Wound Treatment

For many patients, disease and disability are complicated by the difficulty of accessing medical care. Through the use of our telemedicine program, the problems of access and travel are alleviated for patients. Utilizing advanced technology for screening and a multidisciplinary approach for treatment, our network of physicians and nurse practitioners are well-equipped to coordinate patient care.

Telemedicine:

Greater care for the homebound and those at risk

Through early identification of the patients at greatest risk, and the use of remote monitoring, a patient’s status is always current and intervention is available immediately when necessary. DROP’s goal is to reduce or eliminate the need for amputation as a treatment option.

“It is unacceptable that so much disability and death are caused by leg amputation when the solutions are clear and affordable. Small investments in prevention and education can mean fewer leg amputations, increased quality of life for individuals and dramatic reductions in health care costs.” – Dr. Catherine Le Gales-Camus, Assistant Director-General for non-communicable diseases, United Nations World Health Organization.

A Global Need

With the worldwide prevalence of diabetes exceeding 425 million cases and predicted to rise to more than 600 million by 2025, new strategies for intervention and treatment are critical. With rural networks and wound care centers in Asia, the United States and the Caribbean, DROP’s aim is to play a global role in the reduction of diabetes-related lower extremity amputations.
