Patient Responses to a Teleophthalmology Enabled Primary Care Based Diabetic Retinopathy Surveillance Program

To compare the impact of a teleophthalmology enabled retinopathy screening and education program for diabetic patients at three federally qualified primary care health centers in urban Rochester, NY. A nonrandomized prospective cohort IRB approved study was conducted at an urban family practice neighborhood clinic (CFH) and two urban hospital based primary care centers (“OPD” and “Twig” clinics) in the Rochester General Health System (RGHS) between August 2013 and January 2014. Diabetic patients without a documented eye exam within the last year (standard of care) were asked to come for free screening sessions during one-half day each week. 400 diabetic patients aged 18-94 years were screened (Median age = 54.5 years).
