SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DigiSight Technologies, Inc., a digital health company developing mobile solutions for eye care, announced today that it will unveil new smartphone-to-smartphone features for Paxos Scope™, a mobile solution for eye examination and care coordination, at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) annual meeting this year.
With Paxos Scope, health care professionals can use their mobile phone to capture high-resolution anterior segment or retinal photos at the point-of-care, and then securely share and discuss photos with a collaborator or specialist for real-time consultation or referral.
"For an ophthalmologist at a busy practice or working with a larger health system, workflow efficiency without compromising patient care is more important than ever," said Doug Foster, CEO of DigiSight. "Secure app-based imaging and communication with the Paxos Scope software enables ophthalmologists to collaborate and coordinate patient eye care with other health care professionals in a way that was not previously possible."
