The mobile version of Topcon Medical Systems's EyeRoute Image Management Suite is now available as a dedicated iPhone application

The mobile version of Topcon Medical Systems’s EyeRoute Image Management Suite is now available as a dedicated iPhone application in North America. It was first presented in October 2009 at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Meeting in San Francisco.

Ophthalmologists who have incorporated the EyeRoute in their practice, can access images and reports from any 3GS-compatible iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, via EyeRoute Mobile.

Patient images stored in EyeRoute can be listed by modality or visit date, and reviewed, panned, zoomed, enhanced, and annotated with text and audio dictation options. Once reviewed, a smart integrated messaging system allows users to share information with other EyeRoute users through the network.

Dr Julia Haller, Ophthalmologist-in-Chief at Wills Eye Hospital, among the very first users of the EyeRoute Mobile, said: "I view this new addition to the EyeRoute suite as a veritable boon in enabling practitioners to stay connected wherever they are in the world. Now, more than ever before, with Topcon's EyeRoute iPhone application all members of the Wills Eye network, including those working in, remote areas can connect with our EyeRoute patient database on-the-go."
