Pittsburgh – December 1, 2020 – Tissue Analytics, a Net Health company that provides software solutions for the wound care industry, announced today that the company had launched a first-of-its-kind application programming interface (API) program for third-party vendors.
The program enables a range of developers of software products and medical devices to readily interface with the company’s widely used and highly respected digital imaging technology platform. Vendors will be able to interact with Tissue Analytics’ industry-leading 2D and 3D wound analysis and leverage Tissue Analytics’ Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) based integrations with leading electronic medical record (EMR) systems. With Net Health’s API, partners can also leverage their own mobile applications, allowing them to add industry-leading wound measurement capabilities without requiring an additional application to be installed.
The move comes after significant demand from vendors for the opportunity to leverage the core aspects of Tissue Analytics’ system. Currently, only select third-party products are able to utilize Tissue Analytics’ industry-leading 2D and 3D automatic wound imaging platform. Vendors also can’t benefit from the company’s connections downstream with leading wound care EMR systems, including Net Health’s Wound Expert™, the most widely used specialty EMR in the nation, as well as other leading EMR systems.
The new API gives Tissue Analytics’ partners connections into some of the leading wound care programs in the nation’s top hospitals, health systems and clinics. The caliber and level of connections make the company a key resource for any third party looking to provide products, programs or services to wound care.
Tissue Analytics is the market leader in imaging and predictive analytics for wound care. The company provides artificial intelligence-powered software solutions that serve hospitals, post-acute facilities, and clinical trials. The platform uses best-in-class machine learning and computer vision to optimize documentation workflows and improve the quality of electronic medical records (EMR) data.
“Tissue Analytics’ advanced imaging, coupled with Net Health’s wound installation database, provides an immensely valuable asset for software and device companies looking to expand their footprint in the growing wound care marketplace,” said Kevin Keenahan, senior vice president of Business Development for Net Health, and a founder of Tissue Analytics. “The API is simple and easy to use. Developers will be able to start using the platform within a short period of time, lower the number of development resources used, and ultimately reach scale faster.”
One of the most critical features of Tissue Analytics’ interface is its secure interoperability with third parties. Net Health engages in a rigorous security review process with vendors to ensure the integrity of the process for all parties, including providers and patients.
Keenahan sees value in the API for a broad range of industry vendors, from handheld wound imaging to new product manufacturers. “Our API benefits anyone in the industry who wants to include advanced wound imaging in their product, provide better provider engagement, access a larger dataset, or scale more rapidly.,” he said. “Creating a structured program for API partners should be a massive step forward in creating a connected, interoperable wound care ecosystem.
