24,000 people go blind each year needlessly from diabetic retinopathy. This is entirely preventable through early detection and treatment, which is why HEDIS and other healthcare quality metrics include this in comprehensive diabetes care measures.
Yet for years health systems have struggled to hit this measure - as few as 15% of Medicare patients have an annual eye exam, according to a Diabetes Care study.
Some health systems have tried telemedicine to improve access, but often struggle to significantly move the needle on their compliance numbers because of barriers to scale: workflow and quality issues, delays in receiving results, and difficulties in finding qualified readers.
With the first FDA-cleared autonomous AI diagnostic system, IDx-DR, you can test patients in primary care without needing telemedicine or specialist over read.
With IDx-DR, physicians can discuss results and make same day referrals, before the patient leaves the office.
No more waiting for results or staff time spent on follow-up calls or tracking down documentation.
