Oculo, a cloud based clinical communications platform between optometrists and ophthalmologists across Australia, has launched in New Zealand.
The Oculo platform grew out of the Centre for Eye Research Australia and was developed in collaboration with Specsavers, OPSM, and Bupa Optical. Oculo’s aim is to promote the efficiency and quality of clinical communications to support collaboration – and ultimately to help deliver the best possible care to eye patients so they may enjoy the best possible sight.
Oculo’s Australian rollout began in April 2016 and the platform is now used by more than 1,700 optometrists and 440 ophthalmologists. It has managed over 200,000 patients across Australia. The move to New Zealand stemmed from a multi-year agreement signed with Specsavers earlier this year.
Speaking of the launch in New Zealand, Dr. Kate Taylor, CEO of Oculo said, “Oculo is having a positive impact on quality and efficiency of patient care in Australia. We are excited that this is being extended to patients in New Zealand.”
