Integrated Telemedical System in Ophthalmology ITSO

Integrated Telemedical System in Ophthalmology ITSO

  • Telemedical System for Integrated Screening, Diagnosing and Therapy in Ophthalmology (PI Michelson, PI Hornegger, PI Schmauss) (in adjunction with Project A04 of Medical Valley Spitzencluster)
  • The rationale of ITSO is the integration of all ophthalmological medical process steps within one system.
  • All medical professionals – from the GP performing the telemedical retinal screening step to the eye doctor doing the Laser therapy- use the same webbased-electronic patient chart. Thus all data and images were easily accessible in this electronic chart. This increases the effectivity of medical Processes.
