Portable ophthalmoscope to get telemedicine, cloud storage, and analytical capabilities

July 2, 2015
A portable ophthalmoscope maker has entered into a partnership in which it will add cloud-based data management and other capabilities.

Diabetes management technology developer TreVia Digital Health (Overland Park, KS) and portable ophthalmoscope maker D-EYE (Padova, Italy) have entered into a strategic partnership in which D-EYE will use TreVia's cloud-based data management platform and technology to power the D-EYE ImageVault.

The secure TreVia platform, originally created to treat and manage diabetes using telemedicine and other care management software technology, will host and manage the D-EYE ImageVault for storing, analyzing, and sharing images captured by the D-EYE portable retinal imaging system. This collaboration will leverage TreVia's HIPAA-compliant cloud service to enable account setup, workflow management, sharing, and archiving D-EYE videos, still images, and corresponding data for instant access by ophthalmologists, optometrists, general practitioners, and other medical specialists for widespread eye screening.

The D-EYE portable ophthalmoscope attaches to a smartphone (currently Apple or Samsung), creating a retinal camera that can capture high-definition video and still images of the interior of the eye for health screening and evaluation. The device is capable of screening and possible detection of a variety of eye disorders, including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and many other eye conditions and abnormalities.

D-EYE-generated images and videos will be stored in the TreVia-powered D-EYE ImageVault and accessible to providers for analysis, comparison, and diagnosis, allowing the entire care team to engage in the patient's health treatment plan. The telemedicine services that the partnership enables will prove particularly beneficial in rural locales, developing countries, and other underserved areas, bringing critical eye screening services and access to retinal specialists to people in need in remote locations.

The D-EYE ImageVault cloud service platform will be available to D-EYE users in late 2015. For more information, please visit www.treviadigitalhealth.com and www.d-eyecare.com.
