DALLAS, TX — July 14, 2020 — Homecare Homebase announced Tuesday it is partnering with global digital wound care leader Swift Medical to provide high-quality, cost efficient care through an integrated solution.
Wound care patients are often the most complex, high risk population in home health. As such, wound care represents a significant opportunity for home health and hospice providers to use technology to drive quality improvement, increase patient understanding of their healing progress and dramatically reduce operational expenses. Swift Medical's digital wound management solution helps home health providers deliver standardized care in the most collaborative, empathetic and efficient manner. Now Swift Medical's solution will be integrated with HCHB software, allowing for a simpler adoption process and more effective user experience for home health and hospice providers.
This partnership comes at a time when care is increasingly being delivered at home. For patients with wounds in particular, this can create challenges, as wound care is a highly specialized discipline with a shortage of certified wound specialists. "More than ever before, patients want to heal at home," says Carlo Perez, Founder and CEO of Swift Medical. "Our solution helps augment the wound care proficiency of every clinician and enables scarce wound experts to remotely manage care for a broader population of patients, driving profound organizational efficiencies."
"As a company tackling the real-world challenges of nurses on the frontlines, this partnership with Swift Medical helps our customers provide the most compassionate care possible," says Scott Pattillo, Chief Strategy Officer at Homecare Homebase. "By empowering clinicians to provide high quality wound care, we enable patients to live more independently and stay healthier at home."
