Axxess is partnering with Swift Medical to provide thousands of home health agencies access to advanced wound care management.
“Swift Medical’s wound management capabilities complement what Axxess provides within our solution and enables us to deliver even more value to our clients,” says John Olajide, founder and CEO of Axxess. “This new partnership provides transformative technology solutions to our clients, and gives them another critical tool to help them thrive under PDGM.”
The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), a new payment model to reimburse home health agencies for patient care, takes effect for home health agencies on January 1, 2020.
“Wound management is a critical part of home care, and we are pleased to partner with Axxess to extend our accurate measurement and tracking technology to more patients, improve outcomes for those patients, and significantly improve clinical management in home care,” comments Carlo Perez, CEO of Swift Medical. “More than a third of all home care patients suffer from chronic wounds. Swift Skin and Wound is the leading digital wound care solution, helping to heal more than 10,000 wounds a month in more than 1,000 healthcare facilities throughout the USA.”
“PDGM brings a new opportunity for home health agencies to be compensated for providing high-quality wound care,” says Phil Wigmore, vice president of Swift Medical.
“Axxess is a like-minded organisation with a history of providing high-quality software and services that improve patient health, decrease the cost of care and enhance the patient experience, and we are looking forward to working with their clients to improve patient care.”
Swift Skin and Wound provides value to home health agencies through accurate and validated wound measurements and increased compliance with streamlined wound care workflows that enable home health providers to grow their wound care capacity.
