Digifundus has been a leading provider of diabetic retinopathy screening and follow-up services in Finland since 2000. Operating in 12 healthcare districts in over 141 municipalities all over Finland, the company’s service domain currently covers around 2 million people. Digifundus’ services range from imaging, specialist reports, diagnostics and follow-ups, to transferring data to customers’ information systems.
Finnish proprietary software provider Commit had already successfully deployed a system in the country for mammography screening that was similar to what Digifundus wanted. The mammography system was fitted into retinopathy imaging and provided to Digifundus from the Commit data centre.
Digifundus can now provide a completely paperless and highly automated service to its customers. The eye specialist reports and eye images are delivered automatically from the central server to the end customers’ hospital information systems and image archives. The system has also enabled Digifundus to make other processes more efficient, allowing it to provide additional services to its end customers.
