LaunchPad: Exams/Dispensing Topcon Announces U.S. Launch of Telehealth Platform By Staff Tuesday, December 15, 2020 8:30 AM Product: RDxTop Line: Topcon Healthcare has launched its new Topcon RDx ocular telehealth software platform to the U.S. market.Close Up: Topcon RDx is an innovative eye health exam platform that allows practitioners to connect to their office(s) remotely and conduct comprehensive eye exams in real-time from virtually anywhere, without sacrificing the quality care they provide patients. RDx connects to Topcon’s CV-5000S digital phoropter, allowing practitioners to perform fully remote refractions.RDx enhances practice efficiency and work flexibility by providing more freedom for eyecare professionals, allowing them to be present at more than one location and offer more extended and more flexible office hours. RDx also reduces the time per examination, thereby enabling practitioners to see more patients. Patients also benefit from the RDx technology because it allows them to have their eye exam done at a time and place convenient for them while maintaining a safe social distance and reducing or eliminating time in the waiting room.“Topcon is wholly committed to the continued development of medical devices and software platforms that allow today’s eye care providers to practice smarter, safer and more efficiently. RDx meets this challenge head-on by introducing a new dimension in ocular telehealth and empowering practitioners to grow their practice beyond its physical location, optimizing speed, quality and reach of care. We are very excited to bring this innovative technology to the U.S. marketplace,” saidJohn Trefethen, global vice president of marketing and product design at Topcon Healthcare.Vital Stats: In addition to the integrated face-to-face consultation dashboard, RDx automatically imports the autorefractor and lensometer data and presets the refraction starting point on the digital phoropter to optimize the exam. Eyecare professionals, staff and patients can enjoy the benefits of integrated remote video conferences while connecting and controlling the devices within their practice in real-time.For more information on the RDx Ocular Telehealth platform or to request a demo, click here.
