REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Exo (pronounced “echo”), a pioneering health information and devices company, has unveiled Exo Works™, an intelligent and intuitive point-of-care ultrasound workflow solution that enables physicians to easily document, review, bill and manage quality assurance all from one platform – in seconds.
Exo Works addresses decades-long point-of-care ultrasound challenges by making it now easier than ever to manage ultrasound exams for compliance, quality assurance, credentialing and education. Its secure, cloud-based platform can be accessed from a phone, tablet or web browser, enabling physicians to do their work from anywhere. For seamless connectivity, Exo Works integrates with virtually any point-of-care ultrasound device and the most common EMR and hospital PACS systems.
John Wipfler, III, MD, FACEP, RDMS, Attending Emergency Physician at OSF HealthCare - St Francis Medical Center cites the lack of an effective, comprehensive workflow solution as a primary reason that the use of point-of-care ultrasound is not more commonplace. “It’s like having a top-of-the-line sports car but no paved roads to drive it on; we simply lack the infrastructure necessary for physicians to take full advantage of the benefits of ultrasound. Exo Works is finally solving that problem.”
Exo Works’ breakthrough mobile-first software is designed to reduce time and costs involved in accurately and securely documenting patient data while providing additional tools for real-time collaboration, credentialing and tracking key program metrics for departments and individuals. Its nimble and flexible platform makes Exo Works easy to scale affordably from single users to large integrated networks.
Joseph J. Minardi, MD, Director of West Virginia University's Medical Center for Point-of-Care Ultrasound has integrated Exo Works into the medical school program. “Implementing Exo Works has dramatically improved my ability to provide feedback to my students as they learn to use point-of-care ultrasound with our patients,” said Dr. Minardi. “Before Exo Works, we used a do-it-yourself system of spreadsheets to help our students learn; it was cumbersome and time consuming. Now with Exo Works, I am able to review images from my students much more quickly and provide timely critiques in order to help my students master ultrasound. It used to take an hour or more to provide feedback, now it only takes a few minutes,” said Dr. Minardi. “When you have doctors working long shifts, an intuitive, easy-to-use system like Exo Works makes life so much easier.”
“Speed is the core of Exo Works design. Where today’s medical software can be cumbersome, convoluted, and clunky, Exo Works is intuitive, simple and lightning fast,” said CEO and co-founder Sandeep Akkaraju. “It’s now easier than ever to document, bill and share medical exams in seconds, freeing up physicians to focus on patient care and preventing hospital systems from losing revenue.”
Exo continues to expand the number of locations utilizing Exo Works in both educational and clinical settings in top institutions across the country. While the software is device-agnostic, Exo Works is being developed in concert with Exo’s handheld ultrasound device, which uses radically new technology to deliver powerful image quality in a pocket-sized device at a fraction of the cost of a cart-based system. The combination of Exo Works and Exo’s handheld ultrasound device will seamlessly blend an entire medical imaging ecosystem to perform flawlessly across hospitals and clinics.
