Doctors’ daily routines, with medical assistance and surgeries in hospitals, as well as care in their own clinics, may be quite distressing. Moreover, other appointments leave these professionals an even tighter schedule. For example, home visits to patients, business management and taking part on congresses, seminars, inter alia.
Therefore, counting on technologies that help improving production, time optimization and cost reduction may largely simplify a doctor’s daily life.
That is why this article is on ophthalmologist Caio Regatieri’s experience with Phelcom Eyer handheld fundus camera. Understand, as follows below, how the equipment made the specialist’s daily life easier.
How does Eyer help Dr. Caio’s routine?
Around a year ago, ophthalmologist Caio Regatieri first met the proposal of a new technology developed by the Brazilian startup Phelcom Technologies: Phelcom Eyer handheld fundus camera. Attached to a smartphone, the equipment generates retina images in few minutes and sends data to a cloud platform.
Thus, it helps diagnose of eye-related diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataract, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinoblastoma, retinal detachment, retinopathy of prematurity and blindness, inter alia.
Regatieri has been using the equipment for six months in his office, as well as home visits and in the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS), in São Paulo Hospital, in the capital.
Since then, the specialist has carried out more than 500 exams, mainly to detect diabetic retinopathy. “Eyer is easy to handle and makes excellent-quality images”, he states.
As it provides exams in an online platform, the Eyer Cloud, the doctor also emphasizes the system’s ease of access. “Undoubtedly, having a cloud database makes daily life easier”.
More than that, Regatieri highlights that Eyer has the best cost-effectiveness due to its more accessible price, mainly in comparison to a traditional fundus camera, as well as the high quality. “Actually, it is a set of factors that makes it the best equipment of the market in its sector: portability, image quality, ease of use and the support Phelcom offers”, he says.
Undoubtedly, Phelcom Eyer’s connectivity, embedded artificial intelligence, easy operation, portability and low cost help physicians have a simpler, more agile and profitable routine related to retina exams.
