ZEISS Essential Line Connectivity Solutions Structure your practice data

Structure your practice data

Patient medical records, previous examination results, refractive measurements, diagnostic images, prescriptions: Like most eye care practices today, you are probably having to manage lots of data. The question is: Are they readily available and easy to access when and wherever you need them? And can they be integrated with your electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management system (PMS), or with your picture archiving and communication system (PACS)?

The Essential Line from ZEISS offers a range of connectivity and archiving solutions designed to optimize the way you work and free up valuable time throughout your workday. FORUM and VISUCONNECT 500 from ZEISS give you access to relevant data when and wherever you need it, thereby helping you to make more informed and confident diagnoses and optimize workflow throughout your practice.

Make your data consistent with a global standard

Ever faster developments in the field of modern ophthalmology practice management software and database solutions raise a key question: How can you ensure long-term data compatibility, security and migration flexibility? Our answer: With a standard that is universally accepted in the medical world – DICOM.
ZEISS products comply with this data format and are issued with valid DICOM conformance statements. If your practice management system is not DICOM compatible, we offer defined interfaces for the leading ophthalmology EMR solutions.

Information for eye care professionals and practice management

ZEISS Essential Line connectivity solutions enable direct connectivity with ophthalmic PACS, practice management systems and EMR applications via XML and DICOM.

ZEISS Essential Line connectivity solution scenarios

Option 1 – Small practices without a PMS or EMR software

Option 1 – Small practices without a PMS or EMR software

Patient management systems or electronic patient records are not commonplace in many small practices. Even without a medical data management solution, they can benefit from data connectivity: thanks to ZEISS software.

Option 2 – Practices using a PMS- or EMR-based workflow

Option 2 – Practices using a PMS- or EMR-based workflow

Small and medium-sized practices that manage their eye care workflow with the help of a PMS can also connect ZEISS pretest devices via the serial interface. MTAs can store pretest data in the PMS and use it to preset the subjective refraction. Work lists can be created for subjective refraction and the data can be stored in the central data archive.

Option 3 – Practices with a PMS, EMR or PACS

Option 3 – Practices with a PMS, EMR or PACS

ZEISS VISUCONNECT 500 links your pretest area with your PMS or ophthalmic data archive as the central storage site for refractive data. Thus, medical technical assistants (MTA) can maintain their pretest area workflow without needing to manually manage refractive data. These are available to all authorized users as soon as the MTA sends them to the connected data management system. Work lists can be created both for pretest devices as well as for subjective refraction.
