WAVE TeleTrend and AlarmView in Epic App Orchard

Excel Medical WAVE TeleTrend and AlarmView offer predictive analytics apps to Epic users

Jupiter, FL – May 8, 2018 – Excel Medical announced today that WAVE™, the first-ever FDA-cleared patient surveillance and predictive algorithm platform, is now available through its AlarmView™ and TeleTrend™ applications in Epic’s App Orchard. Both apps allow hospital systems to make predictive analytics an actionable process.

“Being in App Orchard is not only a game changer for Excel—by integrating our predictive analytics into Epic—but more importantly, it opens the doors to improved patient surveillance for clinical care teams,” says Mary Baum, Chief Strategy Officer at Excel Medical. “WAVE, via TeleTrend and AlarmView, brings 95% positive predictive value into the early detection of at-risk patient deterioration.”¹

Since WAVE became the world’s first patient surveillance and predictive algorithm platform to receive FDA clearance in January 2018, Excel Medical has been working to maximize its impact through new relationships, organizational augmentation, and a renewed dedication to the company’s mission—to eliminate unexpected deaths in hospitals.

This goal, once far-reaching, has now moved to “accessible” by tapping into Epic’s open, standards-based interoperability platform, and at the same time, by leveraging the widespread data generating infrastructure (BedMasterEx™ and BedComm™ solutions) that Excel already has installed in so many hospital sites.

“To be effective at predicting patient deterioration and catastrophic events it is vital that we have close working relationships with all of our hospital EMR partners,” says Lance Burton, President of Excel Medical. “In working with Epic, we have been very pleased with their responsiveness and the simplicity of the resulting user interface. Obviously, we believe there is a new WAVE in healthcare and we are excited to be part of it.”
