Summary

A detailed overview of the data dilemma facing clinicians today and how an integrated approach to multi-modality diagnostics, pioneered by ZEISS, is paving the way for the future.

The concern:

In the current reality of delivering eye care, providers like Dr. Peter Karth are faced with multiple headwinds:

  • Increasing patient populations in need of eye care
  • Higher disease burden
  • Compressed clinic schedules
  • Insurance reimbursement reductions and restrictions
  • Greater necessity for patient education

The questions:

How can we navigate these challenges? How can we leverage our diagnostic tools to provide more efficient care to our patients? How can I get the most out of my tools, to give the most to my patients?

The cases:

Integrated diagnostics for:

  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Age-related Macular Degeneration
  • Open Angle Glaucoma

The solution:

Dr. Karth considers ZEISS Integrated Diagnostic Imaging platform a key part of patient management, giving him the data integration that he needs to make the best decisions for his patients, efficiently and quickly.
