A new system-wide ultrasound platform integrated with the world's first FDA-cleared AI guidance & interpretation software works with hospital and health systems’ clinical and administrative infrastructures to drive point-of-care diagnostic transformation.
Butterfly Network, Inc. (Guilford, CT, USA) has introduced Butterfly Blueprint, a system-wide platform designed to support the scaled deployment of ultrasound across hospitals and health systems to empower more-informed clinical decisions from the bedside and encounter-based workflow. Leveraging Butterfly’s unique combination of a whole-body handheld ultrasound device, software, and services, Blueprint brings hospitals and health systems a complete ultrasound solution. This system-wide offering promotes improved patient care via accessible imaging across multiple disciplines and care settings. By integrating into health systems’ clinical and administrative systems and workflows, Blueprint delivers a clinical assessment tool at scale.
Butterfly Blueprint is complemented with a rich set of optional software and services including Caption AI-guided software. Caption AI empowers healthcare professionals without sonography expertise to capture and interpret cardiac ultrasound images for earlier disease detection and better patient management. With Butterfly Blueprint, hospitals and health systems can rapidly and easily access ultrasound-enabled insights at the point of care through capabilities such as intuitive, mobile-first workflows; 20+ ready-to-use presets for procedural guidance; and device-agnostic software that integrates with non-Butterfly devices, as well as with other clinical and administrative systems including the PACS and EMR. Butterfly probes connect with compatible Apple and Android smartphones and tablets for display and support streamlined information sharing. Blueprint is also supported with Butterfly Academy, an extensive set of ultrasound specific courses and curricula.
“Ultrasound provides valuable information. The ability to enable the practical application of ultrasound into the clinical workflow to inform clinical decision making is powerful,” said Dr. Todd Fruchterman, Butterfly Network's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Butterfly Blueprint empowers an evolved point-of-care toolkit for hospitals and health systems – one that transcends beyond touch, listening, and surface visuals, and beyond habit-based imaging and lab orders. With Butterfly, clinicians across all disciplines now have a strategic tool that we believe allows them to see and know sooner, helping them drive better care decisions, efficiency, and outcomes.”
