Directly from the Insight Optics site, “At Insight Optics, our goal is to increase compliance rates by bringing trained ophthalmologists to the point of primary care. Our mobile imaging network allows primary care physicians to record and forward fundus examinations to local ophthalmologists for review.

Works like email or text message, and it doesn’t require an appointment.  The patient snaps a photo and answers a few questions, which upon submission, the doctor reviews the scenario and can treat or triage you in as little as 2 minutes.  Doctors can see about 8 telemedicine visits in about the same time as other single “video visit.”

Michael Sitarzewski 16 DAYS AGO
