In case you missed it, Pursuant Health recently introduced retinal screening capabilities into our self-service health and wellness kiosks with the simple goal of saving people’s eyesight. Reporter Michael Johnsen with Drug Store News has the scoop.
“Atlanta-based Pursuant Health is ready to roll out new retinal screening capabilities into its self-service kiosks with the goal of preventing 95% of avoidable vision loss cases with early detection.”
“Documented compliance with annual retinal exams is often less than 50%,” stated Ryan Sloan, chief revenue officer, Pursuant Health. “Our ability to use a health kiosk to capture retinal images, coordinate with eye specialists for processing and report results back to primary care physicians in the most convenient way possible changes the game for all concerned, especially health plans.”
“By getting diabetics and others the necessary eye screening that they are currently not getting, it will save people’s eyesight,” suggested [technology innovator] Kevin Lavery, Pursuant medical officer. “It has the power to transform how healthcare is delivered.”
Pursuant Health is currently seeking additional retail pharmacy and provider settings for further retinal screening pilot program rollouts. Parties interested in helping reduce instances of preventable blindness and overall healthcare costs for up to 85% of individuals with diabetes should contact Henry McAlpin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
