DALLAS, Tex., and TORONTO, On., September 19, 2019. KanTime, the fastest growing home healthcare EMR software provider, is partnering with Swift Medical, the industry leader in digital wound care solutions, to deliver advanced wound care technology via direct integration with KanTime’s Home Healthcare EMR.
“Home health clinicians manage wounds every single day, and more than a third of patients living at home have at least one wound. Swift Skin and Wound is the leading digital wound care solution, improving care for 150,000 patients every day across 1,700 healthcare facilities throughout the United States. Our partnership with KanTime will give home health agencies confidence in all aspects of wound care – from measurement and documentation to reporting and compliance. This valuable partnership comes as home health agencies prepare for the rollout of the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), and Swift Medical is excited to equip agencies with the best wound care management technology to improve outcomes for patients in the home,” said Carlo Perez, CEO of Swift Medical.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will enact PDGM on January 1, 2020. PDGM brings about a new care classification model that groups patients based on clinical characteristics and other information to create more meaningful payment categories.
“With the right technology in place, PDGM creates a significant opportunity for home health agencies to be compensated for providing high-quality wound care. The partnership between Swift Medical and KanTime couldn’t come at a more timely moment. Together we are pleased to expand our services to more customers across the United States. KanTime has a demonstrated history of providing first-class software and services that help agencies decrease costs, improve outcomes and ultimately enhance the patient experience,” said Phil Wigmore, Vice President of Swift Medical.
“Wound care is a complex, inter-professional discipline that requires the right technology and approach. For over 11 years, KanTime has provided functional, scalable and flexible solutions to home health, home care and hospice agencies across the US and partnering with Swift Medical only strengthens this vision for 2020. Swift provides unique and patented technology that provides value to every health care provider involved in wound care. It can be used offline, provides clinically-validated and consistent measurements and delivers real-time data to inform home health agencies on essential wound care metrics and trending. Our home health clients — and, more importantly, their patients — will benefit immensely from this tool. We are thrilled to bring it to them,” said Greg Lotz, Director of Marketing and Sales Technology at KanTime.
Swift Skin and Wound provides value to home health agencies through accurate and validated wound measurements and increased compliance with streamlined wound care workflows that enable home health providers to grow their wound care capacity.
“Bringing Swift Medical’s technology alongside our industry-best EMR will bring a competitive advantage to KanTime home health agencies across the US. We are always looking to partner with forward-thinking leaders like Swift and are excited about providing transformative technology and solutions to our clients. Working with Swift Medical is a win for KanTime and our clients,” said Sundar Kannan, CEO of KanTime.
