DUNEDIN, Fla.—IViewKs Imaging System and Oculo recently announced a North American partnership to bring an integrated solution to enhance clinical collaboration and improve models of eyecare. “We are delighted to work with the iViews team, who so clearly share Oculo’s passion to improve eyecare for patients by providing superior solutions for clinicians. Oculo will bring comprehensive teleophthalmology tools that enhance both the clinical practice and business performance for our optometry and ophthalmology customers,” said Dr. Kate Taylor, CEO and founder of Oculo.

Paul Chace III, CEO and founder of iViews added, “Oculo takes iViews’ clinical images and seamlessly shares them between clinicians and with patients. Our customers love how this improves their referral management, triage capabilities and ability to connect with fellow clinicians and patients outside their practice or clinical setting. Being able to link images captured with virtual review means they can optimize clinic productivity with hybrid models of teleophthalmology.”

Dr. Taylor added, “COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way clinicians deliver eyecare, and we see that as an enduring change. The acceleration of teleophthalmology creates opportunities to maximize clinic capacity and utilization.

"This is important, given how many patients have stayed away from clinical settings over the past months, and the need for care this backlog of patients represents. That’s why Oculo’s HIPAA-compliant video consultation and referral management solution that deepens relationships with referring doctors is more important than ever.”

Chace concluded, “With ophthalmology, high quality, high fidelity images and scans are critical for clinical decision making. iViews works across a practice with tools to help doctors seamlessly manage clinical images. With Oculo, it will be easier than ever to share them with colleagues who are not on the same EMR or practice management system and with your patients.”
