June 29, 2021 (DALLAS, TX) — AccentCare, a nationwide leader in post-acute healthcare that provides care for over 210,000 individuals across 31 states, has partnered with Swift Medical, the leading digital wound care company with over 3,900 healthcare facilities nationally, to enhance the quality of wound care for patients in the home. To further advance AccentCare’s commitment to deliver consistently exceptional care, they have adopted Swift Medical’s digital wound management platform to improve care for the highest complexity wound patients in the home.
“This partnership is a testament to our company’s dedication to innovation in the home,” says Dave Davis, Vice President of Clinical Solutions and Integrity at AccentCare. “With Swift, we’ll be able to test technology to assess wounds more accurately and decrease variation between nurses.”
At a time when greater numbers of higher acuity patients are being discharged into the home, Swift Medical’s mobile application helps frontline clinicians deliver standardized, best-practice care with high precision wound images while providing centralized wound experts with visibility into population-wide wound data to guide clinical decisions, support remote consultations and deliver preventative care. This technology-enabled model of wound care enables standardization of care at scale by empowering every clinician to confidently practice at the top of their licenses.
“More and more patients want to receive care in their homes,” says Carlo Perez, Co-Founder and CEO at Swift Medical. “Yet, with a third of home health patients requiring wound care, there aren’t enough wound care specialists to be in every patient’s home. Our solution enables large, enterprise agencies to provide standardized and scalable wound care for all their patients.”
The adoption of Swift Medical’s solution has helped home health agencies improve clinical outcomes, reduce care costs, enhance operational capacity and reduce adverse events like hospitalizations.
Through their partnership with Swift Medical, AccentCare further expands their ability to deliver compassionate, outcomes-driven care in the patient’s most preferred healthcare setting: their home.
