Teleophthalmology assessment of diabetic retinopathy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Implementation of telemedicine systems for diabetic retinopathy surveillance has the potential to significantly increase access to appropriate retinal care. The Telehealth Practice Recommendations for Diabetic Retinopathy provide guidelines for the design and implementation of a diabetic retinopathy telemedicine care program, and form the basis for evaluation of diabetic retinopathy telehealth techniques and technologies. Future studies are still needed to evaluate outcome data to assess the effectiveness or limitations in providing quality eye care with teleophthalmology.
