Jefferson Community Health & Life has implemented “Swift Skin and Wound,” the #1 digital wound technology in the world.
Swift Skin and Wound is medically approved technology that allows a nurse or provider to take precise measurements of the length, width, and depth of wounds. Swift uses an app on a smartphone to capture a photograph of the wound which standardizes wound measurements across the facility and improves patient outcomes until the wound is healed. The photograph and wound documentation are automatically and securely uploaded into the patient’s medical record.
One of the principal developers of Swift Skin and Wound technology was part of the team responsible for the Mars Rover mission with NASA.
JCH&L is one of the only hospitals in Nebraska and surrounding states currently using this technology.
“Our patients dealing with pressure wounds, abrasions, skin tears, lacerations, and more will receive the highest quality of care at JCH&L with the help of Swift Skin and Wound,” said Courtney Dedon, RN, outpatient nurse. “The technology will help us to track wounds and how they are responding to treatment whether the patient is seen in the clinic, outpatient services, or the ER.”
