State-of-the-art wound care management technology will facilitate more consistent wound measurement across Healogics network of 700 Wound Care Centers®
Swift Medical, the world leader in wound care management technology, today announced that its technology is being used by Healogics, the largest provider of advanced chronic wound care services in the U.S., to power the company’s new Photo Measurement digital image acquisition application.
“As the population ages and the number of patients with chronic disease increases, the prevalence of chronic wounds is increasing in tandem. In 2016, Healogics wound care providers cared for more than 300,000 patients and healed more than two million wounds! With Swift Medical, we found a like-minded technology partner to support our current and future efforts to provide accurate wound measurement, robust documentation and ultimately, better patient outcomes,” says Joe Smith, Technology Innovation Leader at Healogics.
Traditional ruler-based methods to measure wound length, width and surface area promote variability in the measurement and reporting of wound healing. Powered by Swift Medical technology, Healogics Photo Measurement enables its physicians to provide the consistent, accurate wound size and data collection vital to the practice of quality wound care today. Leveraging data from Healogics electronic medical record, i-heal 2.0®, the application also allows for richer, real-time collaboration and more meaningful wound care reporting. Most importantly, Healogics patients can take comfort in knowing that they are receiving state-of-the-art wound care.
“Healthcare is ripe for advanced technology that transforms the capture and analysis of wound care information and augments the abilities of doctors, nurses and administrators to treat wounds and manage wound care more effectively,” says Carlo Perez, CEO of Swift Medical. “Our team is especially proud to be the choice for Healogics and we look forward to rolling out Photo Measurement to their Wound Care Centers® nationwide.”
