MolecuLight i:X’s fluorescence images and digital measurements of patient wounds can now be saved and viewed in Epic
Toronto, CANADA – (August 12, 2020) MolecuLight Inc., the leader in point-of-care fluorescence imaging for real-time detection of bacteria in wounds, announces the availability of its MolecuLight i:X® platform on the Epic App Orchard Marketplace and the integration of its platform with Epic’s leading EMR (electronic medical record) platform.
Users who use Epic for the treatment of wounds can upload standard and fluorescence images, and measurements captured with the MolecuLight i:X device at the point-of-care to the patient’s record. The integrated platforms allow clinicians to optimize their workflow and document their patients’ wounds digitally. The MolecuLight i:X application – iX Imaging – is available on the App Orchard.
“We are proud to announce the inclusion of our MolecuLight i:X platform in the Epic App Orchard Marketplace to allow customers to generate and access documentation of patients’ wounds”, says Anil Amlani, MolecuLight’s CEO. “The MolecuLight i:X is the only point-of-care device enabling clinicians to capture wound images showing clinically significant bacteria, information that improves clinical decision making to ensure the fastest path to healing. The integration of this additional information into existing documentation protocols will provide clinicians with a more complete wound dataset.”
Wound care practitioners using the Epic platform will be able to benefit from the following integrated capabilities of the MolecuLight i:X device:
- A simplified workflow for clinicians to capture wound images and measurements improving wound documentation
- Wireless data transfer of both standard and fluorescence images as well as measurements from the i:X device directly to the EMR patient record. These fluorescence images allow clinicians to effectively evaluate the change in the bacterial status of the wound over time, while assessing treatment efficacy and informing clinical decision-making
- Facilities using multiple MolecuLight i:X devices in multiple locations can store and access patient wound images and measurements from the EMR
- HIPAA compliance (no personal health information is saved on the MolecuLight i:X device)
In addition to integrating with Epic, MolecuLight is launching direct integration capabilities between its MolecuLight i:X device and several other leading EMR/EHR platforms and wound management software, including Tissue Analytics.
