March 5, 2020. Swift Medical and Reach Healthcare are proud to announce their partnership to improve outcomes and independence for wound patients in the home. Reach Healthcare, a leading home health agency that provides complex medical care, and Swift Medical, the leading provider of digital wound management technology, are partnering to deliver efficient, high quality wound care and grow Reach Healthcare’s business.
Reach Healthcare’s approach to home healthcare is rooted in empowerment. They believe that through engagement and education, patients and their families are able to better understand their disease, treatment, and most importantly, how to identify early signs of complications. “Early identification leads to preventative and proactive care, which helps keep patients healthy at home, reduces costs and minimizes avoidable hospitalizations,” says Bonnie Smith, RN, BSN, Principal/VP of Sales & Marketing at Reach Healthcare Services. “This is what our referral partners and our patients expect of us, especially when it comes to wound care. And that’s why we partnered with Swift.”
Swift Medical’s technology platform allows home health agencies to gain visibility into their entire wound population, including patient healing trajectories and patients at risk, allowing agencies to mitigate avoidable costs and prevent readmissions associated with wounds.
“Visibility is very important when it comes to prevention,” says Siobhan Gibney Gomis, Director, Home Health at Swift Medical. “If you can’t see and understand your patient population, you can’t know which patients need what level and frequency of care. Referral sources, like hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, are looking for home health agencies that can provide preventative and responsive care – to improve quality and reduce readmissions.”
“By working with Swift, we’re able to not just provide better care to our patients, but grow our business at the same time,” says Bonnie Smith at Reach Healthcare. “By evaluating and promoting the impact of our wound care program, such as how we’re improving wound healing times and reducing preventable readmissions, we’re able to build trust and expand our referral network by sharing our results with our patients, referral partners and payors.”
Together, Swift Medical and Reach Healthcare are ensuring patients can live independently and heal at home.
