Our diabetic retinopathy screening process is flexible for the customer. On the agreed dates our fundus photographer comes to the customer’s facility to carry out fundus photography for diabetic patients. We save and process patient information, photographs and medical opinions to our telemedicine system. When a photography session is finished, our pregraders carry out preliminary medical opinions pertaining to normal fundus photos and those displaying slight changes, and the remaining images are moved to an ophthalmologist for grading. The pregraders and ophthalmologists of Digifundus are specially trained for diabetic retinopathy screening and we create the patient follow-up plans according to grading standard in use. When grading is done, all results including examination data and patients’ medical opinions are digitally transferred to the customer’s picture archive system (PACS) and hospital information system (HIS). Also, the patients receive their screening results and next examination appointment by post. Finally, we give customers a clear view over the whole patient database, diabetes progress and effects of medical interventions via comprehensive and up-to-date reporting.
