An economic analysis of the tele-retina screening program

Tele-retina Screening test being done on patient

 

The latest issue of the Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology features a paper from Diabetes Action Canada researcher Dr. Valeria Rac looking at the economic analysis of the tele-retina screening program for diabetic retinopathy.

Dr. Rac and her team concluded that this program is a more cost-effective means of screening for diabetic retinopathy than the current standard form of care for urban and rural individuals with diabetes who are at risk of being under-screened.

You can read the full paper on the Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology website.
