American Health Network brings telemedicine to retinal imaging patients
American Health Network announced it has added a telemedicine solution throughout its primary care offices for diabetic retinopathy exam (DRE).
“We understood the challenges that kept our patients from getting the exam,” said Ben Park, MD, president, American Health Network. “Having the exam in a primary care office is a good solution for the patient."
Partnering with Intelligent Retinal Imaging Systems (IRIS) the program uses cameras that let the DRE to be completed within minutes without dilation. This can find eye disease well before the patient ever notices a problem with their sight.
