Information Systems, Telemedicine, Ophthalmology

Definition : Telemedicine information systems designed to electronically transmit and receive ophthalmic images (e.g., digital images of the retina) and consultative text between remote sites. These systems typically include, in addition to communication devices, fundus cameras, ophthalmoscopes, and/or ophthalmic workstations. Ophthalmology telemedicine systems are used mainly by small remote hospitals and in emergency situations to transmit images to technicians and/or ophthalmology specialists for review, interpretation, and/or consultation. Dedicated systems intended for retinopathy screening are available, making it possible to determine, in remote places, whether retinopathy is present and whether follow-up specialist care is needed.
