According to the company, the fully connected environment, digital technologies and artificial intelligence tools enable optimization of patient care.

Zeiss Medical Technology continues to build on its leadership in digital solutions by exploring new ways to advance the future of transformative care in ophthalmology.

At Zeiss Innovation Week, kicking off Tuesday and running through Thursday, the company will host leading experts in ophthalmology to share their personal experiences of how the power of integrated workflow solutions, data management and a range of new software applications are enabling improved efficiencies and optimization of patient care.

According to the company, it also will exhibit at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) Annual Meeting, September 16 to 20, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Conference, Sept. 30 to Oct. 3, providing demos, educational programs, and scientific events discussing how digital technologies can promote clinical efficiency and improved patient outcomes.

Euan S. Thomson, PhD, president of Ophthalmic Devices and head of Digital Business at Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc, noted that the company is raising the bar for new ways to manage care at scale.

“Using data insights and integrated workflow solutions with artificial intelligence adds value in managing disease progression and the optimization of clinical practices," Thomson said in a news release. "We continue to focus on the development of digital solutions creating the roadmap needed for improved care."

"The digital workflow is the backbone of a practice because it integrates all the diagnostics, the therapeutics, gives peace of mind and less stress to the clinician and the surgeon," Sri Ganesh, MD, chairman and managing director of Nethradhama Hospital, India, said in a news release. "At the end of the day, that is what you want to see - efficiency, safety, more patients that can be accommodated and better results."

Bruce A. Rivers, MD, Envue Eye ND Laser Center in Maryland, detailed the benefits of the integrated workflow.

"Our workflow is completely integrated, we're 100 percent paperless, and everything talks to each other," he said in a statement. “The benefits of this integrated workflow are a happy staff, less work for everybody involved, and everything flows a lot easier, decreasing time, stress, and ultimately improving the patient experience.
