retinal screening

Retinal Screening

Milestones reached, new information, and items to be addressed

assessment of camera activity business model
Assessment of Camera Activity: Business Model

We want a model that:

  • Supports Care Assistant effort
  • Is a more convenient and satisfying process for patients
  • Provides access for patients who otherwise may not be screened
  • Helps us meet NCQA standards
  • We need to develop reporting that is automated and address our ‘wish list’
assessment of camera activity volume
Assessment of Camera Activity: Volume

We are below our desired volume to meet our goals:

  • Need 25 vs. 15 per week
  • Interesting note:
  • We are approximately 50% of Ophthalmology's retinal photo interpretation
    • Unknown impact on Ophthalmology’s access and appointment use.
retinal camera process patient assessment
Retinal Camera Process: Patient Assessment
  • When compared to traditional retinal screening by dilation, screening by retinal photo:
    • Reduces patient and companion time requirements and recovery time
      • Median of 16 vs. 155 minutes
    • Appears to be more comfortable and fewer side effects
      • Blurry vision and headache are common otherwise
    • Results in improved patient satisfaction
  • May need further evaluation into patients confidence in the photo vs. ophthalmologist
retinal camera process next steps
Retinal Camera Process: Next Steps
  • Refine the process and define responsibility
    • Current visit planner prompts:
  • Revisit the message
    • Get regular dilated exams (diabetes specific)
    • Getting photos in clinic is our preferred method
  • Focus on scheduling
In the patient’s record:Click on create notes tab at the top of the screen. Click phone message from the choices in the box.
