Salt Lake City, UT – May 12, 2017 – Intermountain Healthcare, a not-for-profit health system based in Utah, announced that it will apply Tissue Analytics’ advanced imaging technology, integrated with its Cerner’s electronic health record (EHR) system, across all its hospitals, wound clinics, and Homecare groups. Tissue Analytics develops advanced imaging algorithms designed to help clinicians measure and track wound healing. Most wound measurement is performed with a ruler and visual approximation, with error rates that exceed 45 percent. Such inaccuracy can inhibit the ability of clinicians to assess patient progress and communicate data to other clinicians. Tissue Analytics is designed to automatically derive wound healing rates using photographs collected from mobile technology.
