"Illuma's services help the entire eye care delivery system to be more efficient," said Illuma early adopter David Jaco, OD, of Eye Care Associates of Kentucky. "Their services drive patients to get care, and their technology allows easy movement of clinical data, which ensures we have access to the right information and can share our findings with other caregivers."
Leveraging technology assets acquired from OcuHub, the eye care health information exchange platform, Illuma is already leading numerous programs with health plan partners specifically designed to improve the quality of care for diabetic patient populations. Diabetes is the number one cause of vision loss for adults. The disease affects 29.1 million Americans, including over one quarter of people over age 65.
One of the lowest-performing Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) quality measures for health plans is the rate of compliance with diabetic eye exams, largely because eye care has traditionally been outside of the core system. Illuma is driving better HEDIS and STAR quality ratings by connecting eye care providers to quality programs, which improves patient outcomes and health plan reimbursements.
