UK/USA - Digital Healthcare (DH), the UK’s leading supplier of digital imaging software and electronic patient record systems for diabetic retinal screening programmes and ophthalmology, has appointed Marc Winchester as President, North America, Digital Healthcare Inc.
Headquartered in Cambridge, Digital Healthcare provides software solutions that combine high-quality digital imaging systems with fully-automated data programmes to handle millions of patient records.
The UK’s National Health Service (NHS) Trusts are using the company’s firm’s leading product OptoMize iP to monitor the condition of hundreds of thousands of diabetics in large scale community eye screening programmes currently underway across the country, because the Government’s screening targets require 100% of the diabetic population to have had access to a digital eye scan by 2007.
In the US, over 100 private practices, hospitals and universities use DH’s software to screen patients for diseases such as glaucoma, retinopathy, cataracts and macular degeneration, as well as for longitudinal studies that measure the impact of new healthcare treatments.
Mr Winchester joins DH as President and Board Director, assuming full operational and management responsibility to grow the business in North America, particularly in the key areas of messaging and high capacity imaging in chronic disease, clinical ophthalmology and clinical trials.
