Mobile-First Ultrasound Workflow Suite Goes Live
Earlier in March, Redmond City, Calif.-based Exo announced the launch of Exo Works, a cloud-based point-of-care ultrasound workflow solution aimed at letting physicians interact with ultrasounds from mobile (and other) devices.
"[The platform] enables physicians to easily document, review, bill and manage quality assurance all from one platform," the company said. "For seamless connectivity, Exo Works integrates with virtually any point-of-care ultrasound device and the most common EMR and hospital PACS systems."
"An effective, comprehensive workflow solution as a primary reason that the use of point-of-care ultrasound is not more commonplace," commented John Wipfler III, MD, FACEP, RDMS, Attending Emergency Physician at OSF HealthCare -- St Francis Medical Center, in a statement provided by the company. "Exo Works is finally solving that problem.”
A Web site detailing the Exo Works platform shows off the tiled format for the patient records, and describes it as "the QA tool of your dreams." According to the company, it offers a wide variety of features, including real-time tracking, extensive note-taking, compliance features and auto-alerts, as well as encryption and two-factor authentication.
Exo was recently named "Most Innovative Digital Health Startup of 2021" by CB Insights and closed a $220 million Series C investment last year. The company is also the maker of Cello, which it calls "the most advanced ultrasound silicon in the world."
