BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- There's an old joke that the best way to save money is not to spend it.
If you're an ophthalmology professional, you know that investing in new technologies – like equipment or even software – often carries an additional cost that goes far beyond that of the new product: namely, the investment lost on your existing equipment. And when the equipment that might be heading for obsolescence is something significant, and represents a large initial investment – like your Fundus camera – that additional cost can start to stack up and might even dissuade you from adopting technologies that can make your practice more efficient and profitable.
Fundus Photo can breathe new life into your fundus camera, with the industry's only fully FDA-cleared upgrade-to-digital hardware solution – that comes paired with ophthalmic imaging software that can send your new, stunningly clear 20-megapixel high resolution images and data to any existing electronic medical record system in any office.
That means whether you're using the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard with your EMR, or any other data and image file format your particular vendor's EMR system requires, you can send the correct format instantly – while safely archiving the original images and data on the capture computer.
Importantly, Fundus Photo also took the time to implement the testing and design standards set forth by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to get its digital upgrade – technically a Class II regulated medical device – cleared by the FDA. That FDA clearance is critical for your patients, and not just because of the high standards of quality, performance and safety it represents. Perhaps more importantly, by having been cleared through that 510(k) process, services related to its use can be covered under Medicare.
Fundus Photo is in a unique position as the only commercial distributor for this upgrade adapter, as well as the exclusive provider of the "New Vision" ophthalmic imaging software – software that takes the term "plays well with others" to a whole new level. And, unlike any other product in this market segment, the manufacturer is so confident in its quality and ease of use they offer 100% free technical support for as long as the doctor owns their Fundus Photo system.
Digital upgrades to extend the life of your fundus camera, the industry's only FDA-cleared open platform digital imaging system, exclusive ophthalmic imaging software that can interact with any EMR and zero-cost lifetime technical support – all compelling reasons to make Fundus Photo Your Partner in Imaging.
