Help Save Vision and Lower Costs with Diabetic Retinal Exams in Primary Care Settings [eBook]

A clinician uses the RetinaVue 700 to screen a patient for eye disease.

In the face of growing demand for healthcare, you’re tasked with the quadruple aim of improving patient experiences, clinician experiences, and business outcomes while lowering overall costs. With the constant evolution of how services are delivered, you need healthcare technology that helps you achieve these goals. With early detection, 95% of vision loss caused by diabetic retinopathy can be prevented, but patient compliance with annual retinal exams is low.1 Patients often find it difficult to obtain an annual diabetic retinal exam for several reasons: lack of insurance or healthcare access, limited knowledge of the risk, or cultural and language barriers.

Implementing teleretinal programs such as the RetinaVue® care delivery model can help healthcare providers increase patient access to diabetic retinal exams in primary healthcare settings to improve patient outcomes while lowering population healthcare costs.
