This looks to be an interesting product with being able to assess a wound and determine what other areas it could affect and this could be a good application in the battle grounds perhaps too.  You can the wound completely analyzed on a flow imagesheet, graph, etc. and really dig in.  As mentioned, during admission this could be a valuable assessment for sure.  Bedsores looks like an area to where it would have some good use too. 

You can watch the video and what is also interesting is the fact that it says it can “predict” a wound?  Now what types of wounds would it predict?  The video below states it can find a wound before it is clinically visible?  If it could find staph aka MRSA that would be good by all means.  Every dermatologist around could have one to diagnose and graph bad cases of acne right?  Of course it’s about saving time and money too as the video emphasizes that as well with proper coding for reimbursement.  image

It boasts a 92% accuracy rate.  The company is offering free trials right now according to the press release.  I talk predictive modeling all the time and how our lawmakers can’t see to get there, pretty amazing when we can use it for wound care and possibly predicting a wound, which I would again guess would be from a virus or as I mentioned above maybe a real bad case of acne <grin>.  As  a matter of fact maybe all our lawmakers should be scanned to see where all their wounds are or will develop for an education process:)  You know if they develop a home system for consumers could this maybe be of help for those with herpes or shingles?  I’m just maybe thinking out loud here.  BD 

Yes it’s an algorithm that does the diagnosing and analytics.

Press Release:

INDIANAPOLIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--WoundVision™, the healthcare industry pioneer in advanced wound detection technology, is announcing today the launch of WoundVision iNSIGHT. Designed to deliver critical patient information bedside, iNSIGHT is the company’s web-based risk assessment software program that assists in the prediction, prevention and early intervention of pressure ulcers and other complications of health. HIPAA-compliant and configured to integrate seamlessly with facilities’ EMR, WoundVision iNSIGHT serves as a base mechanism for patient assessment management across all levels of acuity. The technology provides multiple means for acquiring essential patient information bedside through an array of assessments, including a comprehensive assessment, a quick assessment, a skin and soft tissue assessment and a wound tracker assessment. Any time a patient’s information is entered or updated, iNSIGHT’s predictive models produce patient risk graphs, trend lines representing the patient’s series of health, wound probability graphs, wound healing graphs and wound differential graphs to ensure informed and accurate clinical decisions. The web-based solution is easy to use and saves clinicians time and resources by securing comprehensive patient data during admission. This critical data is then accessible from any internet-connected computer, providing a consistent and holistic view to the patient throughout their experience, whether in a hospital, long-term care facility or at home.

“By standardizing the risk assessment process, our latest innovation promotes the continuity of care at all acuity levels, thus eliminating variability and subjectivity throughout the entire process. With iNSIGHT, caregivers now have the opportunity to individualize and personalize the process, while complying with government and best practices regulations.”image

“Today’s medical environment demands that risk assessment be at the forefront of clinical care, and WoundVision iNSIGHT does just that,” said James G. Spahn, MD, FACS, co-founder and CEO of WoundVision. “By standardizing the risk assessment process, our latest innovation promotes the continuity of care at all acuity levels, thus eliminating variability and subjectivity throughout the entire process. With iNSIGHT, caregivers now have the opportunity to individualize and personalize the process, while complying with government and best practices regulations.”

WoundVision is a predictive modeling and risk assessment solution – soon to be supported by thermal imaging – for early wound detection, which maximizes a facility's efficiency in patient care and outcomes. With WoundVision's technology, healthcare providers can objectively predict and track pressure ulcers, wounds and other health issues to optimize patient outcomes, comply with government regulations and preserve revenue. By cost-effectively bringing knowledge bedside, WoundVision allows staff to not only stay more informed about their patient's health but increase the quality of care they can provide.

WoundVision is currently offering cost-free trials of the iNSIGHT software. These trials will also include the soon-to-be-released WoundVision Thermal Imaging System (TIS) for early wound detection.

  1. Looks expensive, and so probably suited solely for acute hospitals. Providers can progress leaps and bounds in pressure ulcer prevention via aggressive use of the Braden, whereupon they can deploy resources accordingly to deficient areas. e.g. mobility, friction/shear, and nutrition/hydration
