Wound Care Advantage partners with Tissue Analytics

In a recent press release, Wound Care Advantage, a leading provider of management and consulting services for outpatient wound care and hyperbaric medicine programs,  announced a partnership with Tissue Analytics, the world’s leading mobile imaging and artificial intelligence (AI) platform for wound management.

The partnership allows for WCA to leverage its clinical expertise and 17 years of clinical data with Tissue Analytics’ imaging and AI to improve the accuracy of measurement during wound assessments and provide better insights into the efficacy of wound treatments to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.

Chronic wounds affect about 6.5 million people in the U.S, many stemming from diabetes and/or vascular insufficiency. These wounds have a slow healing process and require frequent monitoring and measurement of progress by a specialized wound care team. Research has shown that an automatic smartphone measurement helps to eliminate the high degree of interrater and intrarater reliability often encountered when using a traditional ruler.

With the Tissue Analytics measurement app, clinicians can obtain objective data on wound length, width, depth, area, and tissue composition. This information can be accessed by healthcare providers directly in the EMR through Tissue Analytics SMART-on-FHIR integrations with several vendors including Epic, Cerner, athenahealth, and Allscripts.
