PIXALERE (for Home Health students providing wound care) 

Pixalere is a wound care management system used in home health settings across B.C.  

It is the responsibility of educational institutions (instructors/faculty) to attend training provided by a BC Health Authority and in turn train their students.  If your school is outside the lower mainland please ensure your student is prepared for the clinical setting prior to their start date (review HSPnet destination profile).  

Pixalere accounts for students are provisioned through Student Placement.  Please ensure student name and email are entered into the confirmed HSPnet placement at least one month ahead of the placement start date.  This allows adequate time to provision access.

Pixalere accounts for students should be requested through student.placement@fraserhealth.ca for the period of their clinical placement.
