Data-driven Wound Care

There’s a new standard for wound care. Paper rulers don’t measure up, and technology is now the key to a successful program that gives you a holistic view of wounds, and the wound care landscape.

When you consider chronic wounds, the risk of infection, and patients with comorbidities, there’s little doubt that wound care is a complex issue, even for care providers with extensive experience. Fortunately, there is a solution, and it lies in data. 

With better data, you can measure the success of your program and identify the areas where improvement is needed. A data-driven approach leads to more precise, patient-centered care, which in turn leads to better outcomes.

You can also use technology to harness “big data.” Swift’s algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning technology lets clinicians access the real-world evidence that delivers actionable insights into wound care. With better understanding of wound care populations, associated costs, and clinical burdens, organizations can streamline their operations and deliver clinical and operational benefits. 

Swift makes it possible for clinicians to document wound care more precisely, and more accurately. With better documentation, wound care providers can communicate more effectively. This helps clinicians secure reimbursement, which in turn allows them to provide better patient care. Better documentation and communication also help care providers meet regulatory requirements, and offers protection against threats of malpractice lawsuits and other legal challenges. 

Technology gives care providers a holistic view of wound care, letting them collect essential data that drives programs that are more efficient, lower risk, and higher reward. Want to learn more about the benefits of data-driven wound care?
