Toronto, Canada, June 1, 2023 – Swift Medical, a digital health technology company focused on improving clinical and economic outcomes in wound care, today announced proven outcomes from more than 20 million wound assessments captured with Swift’s leading, AI-powered wound care platform. Deployed in nearly 4,000 healthcare facilities across North America, Swift’s technology has been shown to speed up wound healing by 37%, reduce wound prevalence and hospitalizations by 35% and 14%, respectively, and reduce hospital length of stay by 62%.
“We are proud to share the incredible impact our technology is having on the millions of patients living with wounds – one of today’s most expensive and overlooked threats to patients and our overall healthcare system,” said Brian Litten, CEO of Swift Medical. “These outcomes demonstrate the impact of having the most powerful wound image dataset in the world and its ability to deliver high quality wound care with reduced costs.”
The Swift Skin & Wound mobile application enables any mobile device to be equipped with AI-powered imaging capabilities to capture clinically validated, high-precision 3D images, measurements, and other clinical data. The imaging captured at the point of care enables real-time, at-risk patient monitoring, proactive decision-making, and remote wound consultations, reducing the time and cost spent evaluating wounds to create a more efficient wound care experience for both clinicians and patients.
Today, more people suffer from chronic wounds than those with breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, and leukemia combined. Despite this costly, growing problem, the current standard of care is outdated and highly inaccurate. Clinicians typically receive less than 10 hours of formal education and rely on paper rulers for measurements and cotton swabs for depth assessment. This inefficient and ineffective approach is both painful for patients and leads to poor diagnostic accuracy, prolonged healing, and inappropriate selection of therapies, putting patients at greater risk for readmission, longer lengths of stay and higher care costs.
With its advanced analytics and proven outcomes, Swift is now poised to partner with health plans and risk-bearing providers to deliver high quality, value-based wound care at scale.
