CEI partners with Digital Healthcare to become a Retasure reading centre

Digital Healthcare : 27 November, 2007  (New Product)
Cincinnati Eye Institute (CEI) is the latest ophthalmology clinic to connect with Digital Healthcare’s Retasure retinal imaging system.
CEI is the largest ophthalmology practice in the USA with over 45 doctors across 20 locations. Founded over 50 years ago, CEI is one of the world's premier ophthalmic treatment, research and education centres. CEI has internationally recognised specialists in virtually every ophthalmologic sub-specialty. Each subspecialty group participates in cutting edge development and ongoing clinical studies, and collectively CEI physicians set the standard for state of the art vision care.

'We are proud that such a prestigious facility as Cincinnati Eye Institute will partner as a Retasure reading centre,' said Scott Sanner, senior vice president, North American Operations of Digital healthcare. 'Cincinnati Eye is committed to providing the highest level of eye care to enhance the quality of patients' lives. Their physicians share our belief that providing patients greater access to eye assessments helps in the fight against diabetic retinopathy and blindness.'

'Cincinnati Eye Institute has long set the standard for advanced eye care,' said Daniel M Miller, MD, PhD. 'Retasure provides a solution that truly enhances patient care by making retinal assessments for diabetics readily available. Fewer than 50 percent of the country's 21 million diabetics have annual eye exams, but Retasure allows primary care physicians to capture retinal images in their offices. Retinal specialists are able to remotely evaluate these images, and ultimately the process ensures high-risk patients have an accurate and timely referral to an eye-care specialist.'

The FDA-approved Retasure programme provides a simple, affordable, and non-invasive solution that allows physicians to capture their patients' retinal images during a three to five minute procedure. Images are transmitted over a secure, HIPPA compliant network to an accredited reading centre. A state-licensed and board certified ophthalmologist reviews the images and results are returned to the original physician within 72 hours.
