Welch Allyn® RetinaVue® Care Delivery Model
RetinaVue care delivery model helps healthcare providers preserve vision of patients with diabetes.
Teleretinal programs such as the Welch Allyn® RetinaVue® care delivery model from Hillrom™ help primary healthcare providers preserve the vision of patients living with diabetes and achieve the “Triple Aim” of healthcare: improved patient satisfaction, improved population health and reduced per capita healthcare costs.
Diabetic retinopathy is a growing problem for patients and healthcare providers—it is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness among adults between 20 and 74 years of age. Up to 80% of type-1 diabetic patients, 84% of type-2 diabetic patients who take insulin, and 53% of type-2 diabetic patients who do not take insulin will eventually develop some level of diabetic retinopathy. With early detection, 95% of this vision loss can be prevented. Annual diabetic retinal exams are a key element of early detection.
To help primary care organizations enhance services to patients living with diabetes, the Welch Allyn® RetinaVue® Care Delivery Model offers a new solution for delivering diabetic retinal exams. The solution includes all hardware, software, and medical services needed to perform diabetic retinal exams effectively and economically in a primary care setting.
