In 2024, the WCCC hosted the inaugural Driving Innovation in Wound Care Summit held in conjunction with the SAWC Spring/WHS 2024 conference in Orlando, Florida. The Summit was an all-day event that took place on May 13, 2024.

The Summit brought together senior representatives from the WCCC, FDA, and CMS along with leading clinicians and researchers, and representatives from industry, health systems, and payers to work to evaluate the barriers to wound care innovation and learn how we can overcome those barriers together. WCCC, FDA, and CMS shared the progress on their current initiatives, focusing on how to leverage what has been done so far and planning for what needs to be done next.
