SHOREVIEW, Minn., and TORONTO, On, Nov 30 2018. Maxwell Healthcare Associates (MHA), a post-acute operational, financial, technological and regulatory consulting firm, today announced Swift Skin and Wound as its exclusive digital wound care management solution of choice for MHA home health clients.
The partnership comes just a few weeks before the January 2019 rollout of new Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services rules surrounding pressure ulcer prevention and management.
“At Maxwell we believe technology is key to not only surviving but thriving amid constant regulatory changes and reimbursement cuts,” said MHA CEO Tom Maxwell. “We began searching for a wound care technology for our clients and found it in Swift. More than 1,000 facilities are already successfully leveraging Swift Skin and Wound for better clinical outcomes. It’s the only one with a home health-specific focus build that allows home health clinicians to document in and out of the home.”
Swift Skin and Wound significantly improves clinical and administrative wound care management workflows through: the Swift app, which captures wound care information as easily as taking a picture; the Swift HealX, an FDA-registered adhesive marker applied to calibrate wound images for size, color and lighting; and Swift Dashboards that display real-time healing and treatment to help clinicians and administrators identify risks immediately and improve care.
“We know MHA’s clients are among the most sophisticated in the home health and hospice space,” said Swift Medical CEO Carlo Perez. “We’re excited to work with those trailblazers to transform wound care management.”
Between 14% to 16% of all home care patients have serious wounds, notes Maxwell. With its new partner, MHA can help clients leverage Swift Skin and Wound to better treat patients’ wounds and improve care quality while decreasing costs and reducing paperwork.
This is MHA’s third partnership announcement this year. The first two featured collaborations with home health coding and analytics enterprises.
“We founded MHA with a mission to help home health and hospice providers gain efficiencies by bridging people, process and technology,” said MHA president Jennifer Maxwell. “We partner with the best technology vendors in the industry and work with providers to ensure their people and processes are aligned to maximize those technologies’ benefits.”
