Because most of the patients who receive tele-ophthalmology treatment would not otherwise ever have access to an eye doctor, the program is transforming the way care is made available to rural Indians.
LVPEI professionals use a video slit lamp, a high-end camera that provides a stereoscopic view of the eye. These virtual eye exams include patient registration, vision screening, refractive examination, a real-time slit lamp examination, consultation and advice.
"While we have conducted a successful proof-of-concept at this stage, we are confident this program will be especially effective because of what we have learned from similar programs we have pioneered, such as Tele-EKG," said Kishore Rachapudi, Global Head, Satyam Healthcare and Life Sciences. "We are familiar with the customs and expectations of rural people, and know how to optimize programs designed to provide healthcare basics for them. Additionally, the pilot program in the village of Kallakuru was exceptional, and resulted in enhanced vision for many people who would otherwise never have had their eyesight evaluated."
Satyam, through the Satyam Foundation, is renowned for its corporate social responsibility efforts, all of which rely on technology to enhance the lives of underprivileged Indians.
