Digital Diagnostics becomes a member of the Florida Association of ACOs


FLAACOs welcomes Digital Diagnostics as a new strategic member.

St. Johns, FL September 16, 2021 – (PR.com) – The Florida Association of ACOs (FLAACOs), a ValueH organization and a leading voice in value-based care, announces Digital Diagnostics, developers of IDx-DR, a De Novo FDA-approved stand-alone AI system designed for the detection of diabetic retinopathy (RD) and diabetic macular edema (DME), as a newer member.

Digital Diagnostics is excited to help provide a new path to support FLAACO’s goal of improving patient outcomes through better reduction of care gaps and higher standards of care.

“Diabetic patients should have an annual retinal exam to detect common complications of diabetes called diabetic retinopathy and macular edema. Unfortunately, less than 50% of people take this annual exam, ”said Michael Abramoff, Founder and Executive Chairman of Digital Diagnostics. “This is of particular concern to healthcare providers in Florida, as they have the highest proportion of adults aged 65 and over in the country.”

Using a stand-alone AI, such as IDx-DR, to help simplify the DR testing process helps more people get tested by shifting the delivery of care for diabetic retinal exams, shifting the diagnosis from the specialist’s office to where the patients are – primary care, local diagnostic testing sites and neighborhood pharmacies. This change helps provide a new avenue for ACOs to improve patient outcomes through narrowing care gaps and higher standards of care.

“Membership in FLAACO will allow Digital Diagnostics to connect directly with providers focused on delivering quality patient care across Florida,” said Nicole Bradberry, CEO of FLAACO. “It can help bridge the gap between Floridians at risk for sight loss or blindness and those who are not currently assessed by their eye care provider.”
