Press Releases PERC and Infinity Vision Alliance Partner with Illuma Care Connections Published 4 years ago on September 26, 2017 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet They’ll engage with diabetic patients. (Press Release) ATLANTA – Professional Eyecare Resource Co-Operative (PERC) and Infinity Vision Alliance (IVA) have entered into a partnership with illuma Care Connections to engage identified diabetic patients and schedule appointments with PERC and IVA providers throughout the U.S. The new program enables diabetic patients to receive necessary dilated eye exams, brings independent eyecare professionals (ECPs) into the mainstream healthcare marketplace and improves quality scores for healthplans. PERC President Dr. David Golden said, “We seek partnerships with organizations such as illuma that are solving a real problem in healthcare. illuma’s model will expand the role of doctors of optometry in the medical-centric healthcare delivery system. It also will ensure patients are getting the care they need while increasing the patient volume in PERC and IVA practices. It’s a true win-win.” “Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness among adults in the U.S., and regularly scheduled dilated eye exams are an important component of preventative care and chronic condition management,” said illuma CEO Stephen Kendig. “Compliance with these exams is a key metric health plans use to measure quality and develop quality improvement programs. By partnering with PERC and IVA, we can help more diabetic patients get their necessary eye exams to ensure an even higher rate of compliance.” Illuma uses a technology-enabled solution to integrate with a variety of practice management systems that PERC+IVA members use. This combination allows illuma to turn what used to be purely patient education into action. “Illuma has a very novel way to integrate into our systems and collect clinical data on large populations of patients. The ability to have a full turnkey solution is not only unique, but highly valuable for our practices, as eyecare professionals and mainstream healthcare continue to merge to offer the right patient care at the right time with the right provider,” Golden said.
