How iCare Works With You
iCare offers scalable, HIPAA-compliant solutions to facilitate in-office retinal screenings at your practice. We offer a number of options to best meet the needs of your practice and patients.
- Increase the overall HEDIS measures and star rating for your practice.
- By closing care gaps in-office, you help to improve patient compliance, which offers a return on investment for your practice.
- Be part of the solution to reduce the overall cost of patient care.
A 2014 report by the NORC at the University of Chicago estimated that the total cost of retinal disease caused by diabetes to be $4.8 billion annually, but the costs do not stop there. Vision impairment leads to additional indirect costs that result from medication errors, productivity loss, trip and fall accidents, as well as the impact of vision loss on patient mental health.
With more than 100 million U.S. adults now living with diabetes or prediabetes, early detection can help reduce the economic burden of diabetic eye disease.
Our diabetic retinal exam outreach program contributed to CMS 5-star quality ratings for five of our health plan partners – find out more.
