"Retasure is focused on retinal health and, we will rely on Dr. Huang's vast medical expertise to advise us on future product enhancements. With Dr. Huang's input, Retasure will continue to be the industry's leading retinal risk assessment tool."

"Retasure is a terrific system that provides benefits for patients at risk for diabetic retinopathy," said Dr. Huang. "Earlier detection of patients with diabetic eye disease by endocrinologists and primary care physicians will mean earlier referral to an ophthalmologist. Early diagnosis and treatment of complications is critical to reduce the chance of permanent visual loss. As a retinal specialist and advocate, I am excited about promoting and enhancing a service that benefits our whole health system."

The FDA-approved Retasure program provides a simple, affordable, and non- invasive solution that allows physicians to capture their patients' retinal images during a three to five minute procedure. Images are transmitted over a secure, HIPPA compliant network to an accredited reading center. A state-licensed and board certified ophthalmologist reviews the images and results are returned to the original physician within 72 hours.

There are an estimated 20 million diabetic patients in the US, but only about half have any retinal assessments, despite a high risk of diabetic retinopathy. The National Eye Institute indicates diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among working age American adults. More than a million patients around the world have received a retinal risk assessment using Digital Healthcare software.
