Paramus, NJ-Wills Eye Institute, Philadelphia, has chosen Topcon Medical Systems' new software (EyeRoute, Topcon) with the goal of improving workflow and ensuring seamless interconnectivity of its devices so that diagnostic information is made available virtually at any time from any location.

Ophthalmologist-in-chief at Wills Eye, Julia A. Haller, MD, said "Using [the software system], diagnostic data from various instruments can be channeled into a single imaging center that consolidates patients' and surgeons' needs with great ease. The system also improves patient information exchange with referring physicians in the institute's worldwide community."

Katrin Teigeler, vice-president of marketing at Topcon, said, "[The software system]-based, wholly centralized system greatly improves communication and information transfer not only within the hospital itself, but among the referring practices in the community as well, which saves time and money."
