A Guide to Implementation for Sustained Impact in Teleophthalmology (I-SITE) Toolkit on HIPxChange

Diabetic eye disease is the leading cause of blindness among working-age U.S. adults. Early detection and treatment can reduce the risk of blindness by over 90%, but fewer than half of adults with diabetes obtain yearly recommended eye screening. Teleophthalmology makes it easier for patients to obtain diabetic eye screening by providing convenient access to high-quality, vision saving eye care at low cost. HIP Investigator, Dr. Yao Liu and her team developed A Guide to Implementation for Sustained Impact in Teleophthalmology (I-SITE) to help address this issue. This toolkit is intended for primary care clinics seeking to achieve and sustain increased diabetic eye screening rates using teleophthalmology.
