Openhab get status from Alexa devices

Is it possible to get the device status from devices setup and configured in alexa.

I. E I have a light Bulb in alexa, works fine, I can switch it on from openhab by calling a alexa routine in a rule within openhab.

However I would like some extra logic in my rule to check its status before taking action, but I need the device status to do this.

Also can I call a alexa device direct from openhab rather than calling a routine.
