Welcare sets up eye screening services within existing health centers making them accessible to patients at high-risk for eye diseases (such as diabetes) which could lead to blindness. Welcare leverages new technology for the screenings and keeps costs low by having certified ophthalmologists working remotely.
Welcare has pioneered an innovative approach, wherein Welcare sets up an affordable eye screening service inside existing
Diabetes centers, General hospitals, Paediatric Clinics and other health centers.Welcare installs an innovative Internet-connected retinal/paediatric screening device and trains a technician to operate the device with patients. Patient information including retinal images are securely transferred online to Welcare’s certified Ophthalmologists for review and diagnostics.
The results and recommendations for follow-up are then shared to the patient via staff at the facility they visited.
