BURLINGTON, Mass. & SAN FRANCISCO, September 29, 2022  -- Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY) ("Butterfly"), a digital health company transforming care through the power of handheld, whole-body ultrasound and connected medicine, today announced a new Proficiency Management Solution offered as part of its enterprise imaging platform, Butterfly Blueprint™. 

Shaped by insights from the emergency medicine community, which has been on the leading edge of utilizing point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), Butterfly’s Proficiency Management Solution is designed to remove obstacles from standardizing ultrasound as core to “bedside” patient assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. This new offering supports the learning, credentialing, management, and scaling of ultrasound use and information system wide.

"Emergency Medicine has been at the forefront of developing point-of-care ultrasound and pushing the boundaries of its use. This experience provides us with a unique understanding of how to implement ultrasound as core to the way we work,” said Dr. Ryan Gibbons, Director of Ultrasound Education, Temple School of Medicine and Director of Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship, Temple Health. “We need an efficient, user-friendly modality that facilitates patient care and encourages utilization in the clinical setting. And, for ultrasound leaders, we require a system that tracks the number and type of scans while offering the ability for quality assurance and feedback. The Butterfly Proficiency Management System addresses much of this and will lead to more recognition of the value that Butterfly brings to clinical assessment at the bedside for Emergency Medicine and for many other specialties.”

Butterfly’s Proficiency Management Solution automates the management and analysis of ultrasound across an institution. Through intuitive dashboards users are empowered to:

Assign Unique Proficiency Requirements

  • Set thresholds for each exam-type.
  • Assign didactic education requirements.
  • Notify users on their progress against proficiency. 

Analyze Ultrasound Data and Assess Impact:

  • Compare usage data between groups within an institution. 
  • Identify trends and clinical insights. 
  • Determine the impact of bedside imaging on clinical care.


“Ultrasound unlocks information at scale; however, in order to access this knowledge, users need to be proficient in capturing and interpreting ultrasound exams. Experts may study for years to become proficient,” said Dr. John Martin, Chief Medical Officer, Butterfly Network. “Our Proficiency Management tool aims to streamline this education, and ultimately, to accelerate the adoption and utilization of ultrasound information in patient assessment, diagnosis, and treatment.”

Located in the exhibit hall of the The George R. Moscone Convention Center at Booth #1208 from October 1-4th, Butterfly will demonstrate the new Proficiency Management features as part of its holistic solution: the Butterfly iQ+ probe; device-agnostic Compass™ software; and client experience support and services. Attendees can also observe emergency-specific applications including FAST exam support and procedural guidance with Biplane Imaging™ for short and long axis needle visibility.
