The Tele-I-Care service is a store and forward system. The images captured in the primary care setting will be analyzed and read by an eye care provider in order to check for the presence of diabetic eye disease and other abnormalities. Since these images are taking the place of a live visit, the quality of these images and the patient data is tantamount to the eye care provider’s ability to determine the level and severity of eye disease. The following documents are the protocols which have been created to follow a standardized way of obtaining information and images from the patient. Please follow these protocols closely and refer to them as needed. If you have any questions about the protocols please ask your Tele-I-Care trainer!
