Introduction: In 2020, CenterWell launched a comprehensive program to deliver high-quality wound care. The program includes advanced education for clinicians and an integrated AI-powered wound management solution, Swift Skin & Wound. 

Objective and methods: This study measured changes in clinical, operational, and financial outcomes across 14 home health branches participating in a wound care program and adopting Swift Skin & Wound from 2022 to 2023. Data sources included CenterWell’s Homecare Homebase health information system and Swift Medical’s database. The analysis reviewed 1,468 patients with 2,003 wounds in 2022 and 1,663 patients with 2,401 wounds in 2023 over the same four months (January-April). 


  • There was a 9.2% reduction in visits per wound episode. 
  • There was a 12.1% improvement in the 60-day hospitalization rate due to a wound. 
  • The median days to heal a wound decreased resulting in 35% faster healing time.
