Visiting Nurse Association and Swift Medical Partner to Provide Compassionate Wound Care in the Home

May 26, 2020|News Releases

Swift Medical and Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) are proud to announce their partnership to improve quality care and independence for wound patients in the home and community. VNA, the leading home health agency serving Nebraska and Southwest Iowa, and Swift Medical, the leading provider of digital wound management technology, are partnering to deliver empathetic, best-practice wound care across VNA’s communities.

For more than 120 years, VNA has been a trusted in-home care provider at the forefront of innovative skilled health services and compassionate caregiving. With this depth of experience, VNA has developed a profound understanding of the community and the diverse populations they serve every day.

“With many of the patients in our community suffering from chronic wounds, it is important that we have the right experts and technology to provide the highest quality of wound care possible,” says Jamie Summerfelt, VNA President and CEO. “We already have an outstanding team of wound care experts, and by adopting Swift Medical’s digital wound management platform, we further enhance the quality of wound care we can provide across our communities.”

With Swift Skin and Wound, VNA is able to standardize wound measurements and assessments across their hundreds of frontline providers while enabling wound care experts to remotely review wound healing progress and provide the appropriate treatment recommendations.

“Swift Medical’s technology will allow us to scale our wound care program, augment the abilities of our frontline healthcare professionals, and ultimately allow us to provide even better care to more patients, all with the same great staff,” says Summerfelt.

Swift Medical’s solution also allows home health agencies to gain visibility into their entire wound population, including patient healing trajectories and patients at risk, allowing VNA to provide proactive and personalized care while preventing avoidable readmissions.

“VNA has more than a century of providing care and deeply understands the needs of their communities,” Says Siobhán Gibney Gomis, Director, Home Health at Swift Medical. “We believe our solution will further unlock insights around individual patient wound healing and community-wide trends to support VNA in providing even more precise and compassionate care.”

Swift Medical aims to support VNA in realizing their vision to improve the life and health of people in their community by delivering care that provides peace of mind, quality of life and independence.
