This study aimed to evaluate the effect of the Swift app on clinicians’ time efficiency in wound assessment and documentation, as compared to the traditional paper ruler method. Twenty participants were asked to measure 20 wounds each using both methods.

The results revealed that the Swift app significantly improved time efficiency as compared to the ruler method, particularly in wound charting. There was a 57% total reduction in time to measure a wound with Swift over manual methods.
