Swift Telewound Module
Connecting thousands of wound experts to deliver critical care via telehealth during the pandemic, and beyond.
Wound Care Experts
Wound care providers cannot enter nursing homes or patient homes to provide routine wound care due to lockdowns and self isolation. Those providing care at wound care clinics will see less patients coming in due to social distancing.
71% of wound care patients in nursing homes need daily care, but visiting wound care providers cannot access the facilities during the pandemic. Both patients and providers need protection through isolation – but care needs to continue.
Wound patients, amongst the most vulnerable to COVID-19, are practicing social distancing and avoiding clinic visits. Their wounds still need attention, or else they risk infection, hospitalization or amputation.

Connecting You With
The Best in Wound Care
Swift’s Telewound Module currently connects over 2,000 wound care nurses and doctors with Swift’s customer network of 3,500 healthcare facilities – across all 50 states. It will keep patients and care providers safe while keeping patients in place and already overwhelmed hospitals. The Swift Telewound Module design also allows for seamless inter-specialty consults.
For the Greater Good
Technology alone is not enough to address this challenge. This is not a problem that can solved by organizations on their own. This coalition represents a profoundly collaborative approach to connecting in a diverse wound ecosystem in order to provide compassionate and accessible care for wound patients, throughout and beyond this pandemic.
It’s heartbreaking to have to choose between getting the vital care you need or contracting COVID-19. Foregoing treatment risks worsening of a wound. This worsening could include infection, amputation or death from sepsis.
